Kathleen Parker believes Lance has fallen far enough. As she puts it
Armstrong, though he accepted Oprah’s invitation, declined our kind invitation to fall to his knees. Nor did he ask for pity — or offer excuses or names. He refused to play snitch and, apparently, has no well-crafted strategy for redemption. He’s simply saying he did it.
Perhaps it is a mistake to judge a person’s sincerity by affect. We all grieve in different ways; perhaps, too, we experience guilt and shame in our own way.
Stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, his Olympic medal, ousted by the foundation he created and facing multiple lawsuits, Armstrong has fallen just about as far as one can. It seems enough.
That's Kathleen's opinion but I doubt that is the opinion of the former friends adn media outlets he sued, and recovered monetary judgements. He sits atop a fortune of millions of dollars accumulated in via fraud.I was of the opinion at the time that coming back in 2009 was a huge mistake, Had he stayed out of the spotlight, he might have avoided scrutiny, but his ego did not let that happen.
i suspec that Lance will spend a good deal of time as a professional legal defendant in the future.
