It's summer so I guess it's time for some lighter PF fare. Most here are probably aware that Floyd Landis accused Lance Armstrong - he of the gaudy yellow bracelets seen on Texans everywhere - of systematic doping. Now the Feds are looking at investigating Lance and his former US Postal teammates for fraud stemming from using their sponsorship money to pay for dope. For those still inclined to worship heroes on TV, there really is almost no doubt that Lance is a doper. There are any number of eye-witness accounts, covered up failed tests, suspicious donations to the UCI, suspicious hematocrit levels at the end of grand tours, and other activities that point to a pretty systematic pattern. In fact, almost all pro cyclists (athletes) are dopers, even today. It's just the way it is due to the money involved. So to make this PF related - should the US investigate Lance, the most famous American athlete with one testicle? Or is this much ado about nothing and we should just let dopers dope? On a side note, I recently watched Bigger Stronger Faster and was surprised by the ambivalence it had about doping. To me it's a pretty clear issue: you're cheating everybody if you dope.

Watch out, Lance.
