Most of FLandis' e-mails read like they were edited by a PR person. There are often words, phrases, and sentences that do not appear would be used naturally by Landis. In many instances the language appears to have been "spiced up" during editing. Does anyone think that Landis really wrote, "I never took their very poor advice but only bring it to your attention to enlighten you to the good possibility that Mr. Verbugen and Mr. Armstrong could easily have made a financial agreement without any evidence thereof."?

For some reason the "bombshell" e-mail reads like it was written by Landis without help. That is rather odd. Perhaps the e-mails to the USADA were some of the first e-mails, and Landis got help as things gathered steam.

He has Lemond's lawyers on the case. This certainly has helped him from a PR perspective.

Did they change the article or am I missing something?

No way. A world famous doctor and cardiology expert like Seghi can setup his own Swiss bank accounts.

Well I guess so. He set up other things but I was not sure about this situation.

"Among the most touching mementoes is a table with five chairs from Z’ Tejas, representing the place where Armstrong first dreamed up LiveStrong with Bill Stapleton, Bart Knaggs, Gary Seghi and John Korioth over lunch. Even the menu is there."

You have to be kidding me. He bought the table and chairs? He is more mental than I imagined.

Och has a long history of hiding money.

When Gerard Bisceglia found out he had been receiving under the table kickback from sponsors Och went crying to Weisel who had him fired from USA cycling and replaced with his stooge Johnson.

It was "auctioned" off E-bay style!

One of the 4 decided to have that done. Very disturbing. They think it is some piece of national history.
