I think it is over when Lance has made restitution to all those he berated for attempting to tell the truth - until he has paid back the money he earned under false pretenses, and helps restore faith in the organizations that he tainted.

I was in a meeting with Lance last May in Orlando, and I now look back and wonder what part of the stories he told were even remotely true. At the time I was excited - I had recorded the meeting and sent I copy of it to my sister who was at the time going through her own battle with cancer. Now, that recording rings hollow.

Hopefully at some point, people like him and many others may return to the realization that honesty matters. Right now, honesty seems to be a victim of "win at all cost".

From what I've witnessed watching Lance Armstrong, he's a big boy. He can take the heat being dished out. Afterall he's dished out plenty of it himself. People have a right to respond to his newfound "truth". Like so much that happens in America - this too shall pass.

If he had just lied I might have more sympathy. But it seems he bullied others into doping and still others into keeping quiet. I have no interest one way or another but I have no sympathy either.

Has Lancr Armstrong made whole those who he hurt? Those from who he stole victories? Those who he sued for telling the truth about his cheating?

He got really rich from cheating. He's still really rich. He's just embarrassed, the rest of us go to work every day. I think I've suffered enough so give me millions for cheating and then embarrass me if you can.
