Disappointed by Armstrong

RECEIVED Mon., Jan. 14, 2013

Dear Editor,
    Although I am not by any stretch a sports fan, nor do I follow “celebs," I have avidly followed the Lance Armstrong controversy in the Chronicle and elsewhere. Boy, was I fooled: I thought that he was telling the truth when he said that he never took performance-enhancing drugs.
    I am so disappointed to find out that the guy in the white hat is a liar and a cheater. It is really disheartening. Was the hype, money, and fame worth cheating for? Evidently so. I don’t think that anybody at this point really cares whether Lance Armstrong is allowed back into competitive cycling again. To me, he is, and always will be, persona non grata.
    I just hope that the LiveStrong Foundation can survive this whole thing. I think that they should start with a name change.
