Leave Lance Armstrong Be

60 Minutes dredged up the old and extremely tired Lance Armstrong doping scandal again. Did 60 Minutes ask Lance about it? Nope. Armstrong's lawyers are demanding an on-air apology. What is it that's so damned fascinating about this subject? Is this last month's French weirdness leaking into June? Baseball players who look like linebackers aren't scrutinized every month about what junk they're throwing down their necks or into their veins, but like 60s flashbacks, Lance gets trotted out whenever anybody feels like tossing the word "suspicious" around. Leave Lance the hell alone. We cancer survivors haven't got enough heroes as it is, without mediabozos trying to take away one special hero we love.
