    To be sure, I do not and never will endorse dishonesty. That said, I'm suspicious of the obsession with people who have had tremendous success being placed in such a negative light; when few questioned them prior to reaching the pinnacle of their ambitions. Lance Armstrong, Pete Rose, Michael Jackson... In Armstrong's world, it apparent to me that most are willing to look the other way when it comes to using steroids or other performance enhancement. It's a world remarkably similar to the one we see every day when we drive through stop signs and no one does anything about it. Let he/she who is without sin cast the first stone. It was dishonest, indeed. But what motivated the person or persons that placed Lance's deed under the microscope. How dishonest is his/her or their motive?
