Lance Armstrong: Who Cares?

Really, who the hell cares?

In the big picture of things, does it really make a damn bit of difference?  Outside the world of cycling is it anything more than a footnote? Honestly, couldn't the hours of news coverage be devoted to more important and pressing matters? 

It's a National Enquirer/News of the World... World.

We have always been fascinated by the fall from grace of the famous, but isn't a former American mayor's indictment on 21 federal charges more important to us than a cheating bicyclist?  You couldn't tell from the news coverage.

Lance Armstrong May Have Lied to Winfrey

That is the ABC headline that caught my eye.  If there is anything less important than whether or not Lance Armstrong cheated in a bicycle race, it is whether or not he lied to Oprah Winfrey.  Seriously, how long is it before we're watching the CNN special about Hitler's Secret Moonbase?
