Barry Bonds on "Costas Now" (2007)
Commentary by Christopher Hamre, VP NOSSA, July 2007

Our organization, the National Organization of Short Statured Adults, wishes to make a formal statement with regards to an insult made by Mr. Barry Bonds. directed at Bob Costas. After viewing an episode of "Costas Now" on Wednesday (07/25), Mr Bonds responded to remarks made by Curt Schilling and Patrick Arnold, as well as Mr Costas, by referring to Mr Costas as a "little midget man who knows nothing about baseball."

While Mr Costas apparently didn't take too much offense by it but responded to Mr Bonds in kind, NOSSA finds the comment made by Mr. Bonds inappropriate and offensive. We at NOSSA are fed up with the public insults and in our quest for equality demand an apology from Mr. Bonds at the minimum. Insulting another minority would at least warrant an apology, if not a suspension. They wouldn't have to put up with it, so why should we?

Respectfully,

Christopher A. Hamre
Vice President
NOSSA
