Got forwarded a site called raceclean.org. Now, this is an acidic bit of scribblin' going on - and, I'm not sure what to glean from mr. clean. I don't know how the person gets their info or how they choose to accuse, but in one of the posts was the following:
Raceclean doesn't smear people until we get tips from at least two distinct sources, and on top of that we use basic hunches and known associations to determine if we are getting decent info. Raceclean does not exist for racers to smear innocent peers for personal reasons. We don't even post a third of the riders who we have tips about or strong suspicions. [Saturday May 27, 2006]
I just dunno. The justice meter in me twinges a bit with this explanation. I just dunno.

Folks around my office are floating in and out of mine to ask/yak/gloat about The FLandis being popped. I just shrug my shoulders ... c'est la vie. They ask about why they dope. They talk about how they should just let them all dope since it happens anyway. They throw up hands and say the sport should be shut down until all the dopers are weeded out.
I just shrug my shoulders ... c'est la vie.

We might ask ourselves ... a more basic question on the nature of humans ~ do we choose to act rightly based on an internal drive to maintain goodness, or fear of retribution of being caught if we act wrongly?
In our whitey-mcWestern culture, I suppose it all goes back to that Hobbes vs Lockian debate on the inherent blueprint of the human mind - tabula rasa or beastly by nature? Do we need a fist threatening our straying from the path, or a golden chalise held out to grasp?
I just dunno.
