    Then, in my morning papers, two editorial cartoons directed at Flandis:

    cycling didn't even have this attention when we hosted the 03 World Championships.

    Actually, I thought the first one was pretty lame. The second one, that was funny.

    No mindless hero worship here. Although, I wonder what would Ivan Basso do?

    technically no. she must be as anti-american as you, because she had the boob implants removed.

    2nd was worth a chuckle. First was pretty lame.

    Still think the whole thing is sad though.
