I think that is the worst thing,that people especially the young grow up thinking that if you get away with it then it's OK,the same goes for politics
It's as you say it corrupts society.

Listening to Lance on downtown Nashville radio last week, he still believes the world should forgive him.He has paid back all his sponsorship money. Apologised to everyone he wronged, and believes he should be allowed back. Others have been so why not him?

How could he pay the money back, does he have other income?
I do believe in forgiving people, I want to be forgiven
Is this different?
Cycling-of course, but it is far better on a Gillott

drugs cheats who win obviously deprive other (non-/less/undiscovered cheating) competitors of their chance of victory. But that is almost a victimless crime by comparison with what that bloke did.

He's a first class A1 grade git,with a nasty streak of retaliatory vengence against anyone who crossed him,as a result he's reaping what he sowed and the harvest is a bumper one :)
