    I think I might use my 1 week vacation on this thing. I'm from Iowa, but never did the Ragbrai. It's either that or the AICHE conference in November, and I'll check out California while I'm at it. Damn...

    I guess it's brave in a way to put yourself out there with a bunch of people who may feel let down by your actions.

    Personally, I think that if he held a signing of any LA memorabilia that people brought with them, the line-up from the table would be several blocks long... five abreast.

    There are still a huge number of people who believe LA has been deeply wronged by the system, and can't see past that to understand the nastier parts of the saga.

    It's an interesting aspect how people think of the villains in our society, some of whom even go on to achieve hero status.

    For what? He's not wearing a Redskin jersey to an Eagle game...now that requires a security detail.

    Society loves to make heros, and loves even more to tear them down.

    They can't claim that until they get the test results.

    A lot of people know only of the Livestrong foundation, not the cyclist. They appreciate what the foundation has done for cancer research.

    And the foundation has done jack squat for cancer research. They don't fund research. They fund support for people undergoing treatment, but don't spend a penny on research. That's one of the many pieces of misinformation floating out there about him.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    And "the system" isn't through with him yet. There's still the whistleblower lawsuit pending against him.

    for the uneducated, having a Tour de France winner, regardless of the doping issue, and one of the greatest cyclists of all time riding your ride is a great draw.


    i.e. it is a positive thing

    I'm not saying what they doe is bad, just that what they do isn't what the majority people give them credit for doing. I remember all those cashiers asking me if I wanted to buy one of those bracelets "to support cancer research" and sometimes getting looks for saying no, but not wanting to take the time to explain to them that buying one wouldn't have supported cancer research. As a scientist, there's a big part of me that feels that more people are helped in the long term by supporting research, but as someone who has had a number of people in my family survive (and others not survive) cancer, I do see the value in supporting people undergoing treatment. It's just that that's now what Livestrong was sold as even though that's what it does that rubs me the wrong way.
