In August I blogged about Lance Armstrong after he “stopped his fight” against his accusers. Do you want to be right or do you want to do good? The Lance Armstrong saga finally comes to an end. But who really loses? Mistakenly and naively, I implied that the saga had come to an end. Obviously it hasn’t.
Friends have been debating the merits and demerits of Lance Armstrong with me on facebook and one person put it very succinctly by asking the question: “Is Lance a good person who did bad things, or a bad person who did good things?”
So I’ll leave it to you to weigh the scales of justice or as another intelligent friend of mine says, weigh a complicated situation. How many good things outweigh the bad? And if you are one of many who still admires Lance, what kind of deeds would have to have been in the bad column to tip the scales the other way?
