Defending Lance

Sally Jenkins, here, in the Washington Post. I was wondering when she'd speak out about Lance Armstrong's fall from grace. Yes, she's biased. She co-authored two books with Lance. But she makes some damn good points about the (largely feigned) surprise and anger directed at the 7-time Tour de France winner.

(I know, they've taken supposedly away Lance's victories, but you can't really change history after the fact. Perhaps I'd be persuaded to accept Lance's excision from the record books if they ever went back and systematically take away the victories of all the other drug cheats, including by admission Fausto Coppi, who were not caught through in-competition testing.)
