Oprah did ask about Kristin's knowledge of the organized doping and he gave a very watery answer about it, trying his best not to actually say "she knew and participated".
Thanks.

Yet another example that even when he tries to tell the truth (e.g. he and Kristin discussed doping), he can't help himself but to jump into another lie (she didn't know about it).

He would be better served to utilize his Deposition strategy: I can't remember.

I counted those up at one point. I think the tally was close to 200.

Now it's Kristin's turn to exploit her children:

According to her definition of courage, her ex-husband must be the biggest coward in the world:

Courage is not only manifested in major moments. Sometimes it is quieter. Sometimes it is a series of small moments or choices that brand the brave. Sometimes it is not big or flashy at all. Sometimes it means taking the high road for so long that you can finally turn off your GPS. Sometimes courage is exhibited in people who simply continue to do the next right thing. People who do the ordinary with great character, and only think they are doing what is expected. Some of the bravest people simply do what they need to do and never consider anything special or unique about it. Courage is all around us, yet because bravery and bravado are not the same thing, it often goes unseen, or seen but unrecognized.
I still can't understand how women adore this pointless drivel.

i found it nauseating, but no more so than your sexist comment.
Her column appears under the "women's running" area of the magazine. I didn't come up with that title - the magazine did. Look at the comments under that column -- ALL were by women. She was not a runner before starting the column, and the only two things she brought was her last name and the fact that she's a woman. The FACT is that that column is written to appeal to women, and the fact is that it works damn well.

Don't be so quick to play the sexist card when it clearly doesn't apply.
 
I'm a runner..
I can't stand her stuff. she wants to be recognized as a runner and be an important voice in running and I wish she would just go away.

That magazine fills a recreational niche like 'comfort bikes' in the world of cycling...

Next up could be a column listing the contents of the "backpack of sadness" each week.

Kristin should get a job writing weepy sympathy cards.
Might we allow ourselves to admit to the concept that LA was in fact a product of his society, that he was allowed to do what he did? Encouraged by every exploiting force within his sport (and all those who enjoyed the fruits of his labour). Wasn't he just the antithesis of all the hero worship.
This is like Jimmy Saville, blame it all on a dead guy. Only in the case of LA he has to be killed off first.

Sure. Trying not to employ too strident an analogy here, but:

Just as Joe McCarthy was a product of his.

Does she write it or does someone ring her for a quick interview then ghost writes it.

Whoever it is, it is drivel.

I believe she 'prides' herself on being a writer....
it brings her closure and inner peace ...:rolleyes:

fine with me if she writes..I do not care to read her opinions and advice on running. I don't read that mag anyway...

hmm...i think I will start a blog in Compressed Air Digest...I'm sure I could become an expert in a short amount of time and write inspiring prose :D

Really, so Lance has no responsibility for his cheating and bullying.
