Tight and tighter?

To 'get him', the entire European world is frolicking: how better to get one's name in the paper than to sign-on to this campaign (legitimate, or not?!)??

Benedetto Roberti has a lot of work to do... with so many cyclists training over the winter on his territory!

Well, at least he has been able to get a riders to provide more in-depth material about the doping process.

Aren't we trying to remove illegal drugs from cycling? Or are you too addicted to yourselve!

Probably why you were to timid in going to the DailyPeleton with their learned cyclists. They had already determined that Lance Armstrong was guilty and dirty.

But, since Lance Armstrong kept slipping away, this new Floyd Landis event gave everyone their reason for jumping into the chase and going after him.

Yet, no one seems disturbed at how our legal process is being screwed around with. Or would that mean for you having to admit that our Democratic party has gone over the edge entirely!

So, I guess it's going to be a case of proving one guilty by any means. Sure glad that you can laugh at all of this.

One thought here: If you're so good, why don't you go and volunteer to really participate (work) in this case!

Harry, what kind of drug is "yourselve"?

I'm 'dead in his eyes' so not only does he express nonsense, but he's apparently a) a 'grave-robber' or b) delusional...

Like old Aunt Sadie, who used to talk to her grandma day in, day out... sigh... but she gave me a buck every day I visited (when you are under 10yrs old, that's Major 'bought-affection'! heh heh)

I was surfing the FDA 'Criminal Investigations' page... not much is 'above the surface' concerning Jeff Novitzky and this investigation...

Well, you're up at the computer at 9:00 am this morning.

I was up before then and out hiking already. What a beautiful day.

Not surprizing that you didn't find anything about Jeff Novitzky considering that he's a federal investigator.

It's not like researching a pro cyclist.

The very perception of the name Lance Armstrong is on the edge of a major change. I take no joy in seeing this legend fall from grace, but what about all the millions he gave hope too predicated upon a falsehood that he so vehemently denied? It's almost like finding out that there was no Santa, difference being that my parents weren't gaining anything from it.

It would certainly remove the 'hysteria' from those analyses of French doping officials, as analyzed by many bloggers, including myself, all of whom had written long and frequently about the seemingly lax standards ("typiquement franšais") in the LNDD French lab.

I'd be curious to see how extensively his Foundation suffers by 'guilt by association'... IOW: Is his cancer, and cancer foundation going to suffer because the post-cancer "winner" may soon be confessing to his own batch of 'crimes'??

Dunno...

1. He dealt in his fight with cancer.
2. He started a foundation for the fight with cancer.
3. Foundations that thrieve on donations are all being affected by the current economy here in the US.

Those are facts!

Anything else we'll have to wait and see!

Cheers there in New Hampshire. I grew up in Laconia.

Well, this case is getting more and more interesting.

Since when did it require so many individuals to fly at government expense over to Europe? Especially since that no one there in Colorado Springs had really done anything valid, until our federal inquister from FDA showed up on the horizon.

Sounds more and more like a group of politicians treating themselves at tax payers expense.

So, where is our misfitted mudboy and his wonderhorse, bushboy when we need someone to battle the disease (wanna-bees) coming out of Washington, DC?

The mysterious saga (soap opera circus) will continue.

Cheers All
