I loved Lance, I still respect Lance and I feel sad on many levels. It's kind of like he turned out to be my false hero. But do today's headlines negate all the races he won, and all the good he's done? I don't believe entirely.
I have no idea whether Mr. Armstrong is guilty or innocent. What I'm familiar with, given my work as a crisis consultant, is seeing prominent individuals and even major corporations buckling under the psychic and financial weight of ongoing investigation.
Lance Armstrong and the LAF have provided hope for so many patients and families as they face their own battle. And so, news of the latest attack on Lance's credibility as an athlete and human being has not set well with me.
