On the drug front, he helped (led?) to set up a very unfair doping control system. I'm not saying I'm for the dopers, but give them a fair trial.
Oh, the memories. That story was big here in Atlanta at the time. She did much more than jaywalk. She apparently had had quite a bit to drink and got very abusive toward the police officer. Something along the lines of: Don’t you know who I am? There were some choice quotes – I wish I could remember exactly.

When I was an intern in DC (of the non-Lewinsky variety), there was a kid who got rejected from a bar for a fake ID and he said: "Do you have any idea who I work for?", proceeded to tell everyone, which then made the papers. Needless to say, he wasn't around long after that.

BF life lesson of the day.....Anonymity is the friend of drunken misdemeanors. Use it.

That's Pound's wife. Not Pound-cake. Yes, he's a Dick but if we start holding people accountable for the actions of their spouses, Nicole Simpson has a lot of questions to answer.

When I first saw the title, I didn't really know what to expect, but then my sensible half got the better of me after actually reading the post. Why are there so many people out there that want Lance to fail? I guess they don't care what kind of image that would give cycling. It kind of pisses me off that people can be so disrespectful of accomplished athletes, even after they have shown time and time again they they are clean. No good deed goes unpunished I guess...
