It's okay to lie - if you fess up.... what????
So here's the think about Lance Armstrong and doping. I wanted so hard to believe he didn't do it, but I suspect the evidence that he was part of a huge cover-up is too over-whelming. So his titles got stripped from him and he was banned. Now there are rumors that he wants to confess so that he can be allowed in the sport again. Well, how many parents of a punished child who confesses to a crime will say, "Okay, thanks for confessing, punishment is over." No. Good parents don't do that. Confession or not, the ban needs to be in place, perhaps one year per Tour de France win, so at least seven years. And during those seven years, pro cycling needs to do some major house cleaning and set new standards that it religiously inforces. Otherwise it's all just a joke.
