I was wrong about Armstrong

January16

okay…

I admit it. I was wrong about Lance Armstrong.

I made a big deal over standing by Armstrong and him being a hero. sometimes that involved not listening to reason posed by others.

perhaps it was all wishful thinking. I’ve seen the man up-close-and-personal in racing. and, I was always inspired. he either blew-up or won. that is neither an excuse, or a reason.

But, I still hope he can dig deep and some how finish well in life, if not on the road.

I have no idea how, mind you. I just want that for everyone and anybody. but, admitting when you are wrong, or mistaken, is part of that path towards redemption.

rare addendum dated 01-20-2013:

“I know him in a very complex way. he’s a real person; he’s not a cardboard cutout. I know that he has troubles, and when you genuinely are about somebody you don’t just walk away from them when they are struggling.”

I think we also must come to terms with the harsh fact that Armstrong is likely possessed of a severe personality disorder. it’s certainly not an excuse. but, he can’t relate to almost anyone. he will view and exhibit remorse in a way most others can’t, in return, relate to.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
