    Nothing's Changed

    Golly gee whiz - this should be an interesting follow-up!

    With regards to the question about Livestrong, yes, I still support the organization and I still wear my Livestrong bracelet. Since my last report, I've read that Livestrong and Lance are no longer officially tied to each other; of course, Lance will always be associated with Livestrong, but at the end of the day, Livestrong is and will always be about helping people battle cancer. As time continues to pass, hopefully the dark shadow of Lance Armstrong's behavior will give way to a new dawn at Livestrong and allow it to be as effective as ever.

    With regards to Lance's alleged confession, I think it's important to remember that this is not only about Lance's reputation but also about Oprah's. If I read correctly, the interview lasted for roughly 2.5 hours; her special is going to run for 90 minutes. How is this going to be edited? I'm sure she'll be looking for a win-win, but this is really her show, not his, and she's looking to regain relevance too. Regardless, it should be very interesting to watch! This said, I'm already reading comments about his confession and he's getting raked over the coals. Did he bring this reaction upon himself? Did he expect otherwise? As I ponder all of this, I think we're just seeing one more example of a flawed human being, albeit on a grand scale due to the individual involved and the intense magnification afforded his flaws by technology and our evermore-connected world. Despite his flaws, he's worthy of the same grace and forgiveness that each of us would hope for in any situation such as this. Time will ultimately bear out Lance's true level of remorse. Hopefully with the time ahead, Lance's actions will speak more that his words to this point have meant.
