Children, I hate to tell you, but life isn't always fair. The most outrageous current example is the ongoing reign of de facto President George W. Bush and his evil sidekick/puppetmaster Dick Cheney, still in office after fixing two elections.

And the example du jour is Barry Bonds, the new home run king.

In a just world, Bush would have remained in Texas in 2001 instead of taking over as President under dubious circumstances. And Bonds would have ended up his career with around 600 home runs and a greatly reduced hat size, still a sure-fire Hall of Famer and on the short list of all-time great hitters. But not home run king and not the strangely bloated figure he has become.
