Re: Lance Armstrong set for tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey
While he is one of the worst cheaters in history, making him a scapegoat for the entire failings of pro cycling in general isn't the right thing to do. He needs to be punished sure, but this scandal needs to ignite something more fundamental in changing the cycling world. It appears to have moved on, but there is always that doubt now. UCI needs to be shuffled up big time.
Genius is not replicable. Inspiration, though, is contagious, and multiform — and even just to see, close up, power and aggression made vulnerable to beauty is to feel inspired and (in a fleeting, mortal way) reconciled.
