" ... Lance Armstrong has been ordered by a Texas arbitration panel to pay back $10 million in prize money that he received for winning the Tour de France in 2002, 2003, and 2004 ..." - Daniel McMahon, Business Insider, February 16, 2015. Here is the coverage.
Maybe Armstrong's career in sports was not, as he titled his book, about the bike. It could have been about his need to pull one over on people. He could just have a beef against humanity - at least every other human being with the exception of himself.
Last January, as McMahon notes, Armstrong said in a BBC interview that if he time-traveled back to his Tour de France days he would likely cheat all over again. And, as many know, he was ready to have his girlpal Anna Hansen take the blame for hitting two parked cars. He had left the scene of the accident.
Any attempt he made as to an apology in the past can't be taken seriously. The guy doesn't seem to buy into conventional systems of right and wrong. He seems to have his own system. So, does news anchor Brian Williams. The burden is on us to catch them sooner and stop all that.
Maybe our traditional notion of "reality" isn't as widely shared as we had assumed.
