I was one of those straight-A, teacher's pet, smart girls. No dates and no athletic ability. And so I passed through my high school gym classes in a fog of deep embarrassment.I was always the last one picked when they chose up sides and the first one eliminated in dodgeball. On my best day, I recorded below-average scores on all the skill tests. The only way I could prevent my gym grade from keeping me off the honor roll was with the extra credit you received if you showered after every class.

Lance Armstrong has been rightly condemned for cheating. It takes skill, raw talent and extreme drive just to complete the Tour de France. However, to use unlawful measures to win it takes a complete unraveling of one's moral compass and a breakdown in ethical boundaries. This is true even if Mr. Armstrong has brought great inspiration to cancer survivors. As an attorney, one of the things that offends me the most is Mr. Armstrong's apparent misuse of the legal system. He abused it to suppress the truth by filing lawsuits against his accusers, lying under oath and, in general, attempting to subvert any investigations by reportedly trying to intimidate witnesses.
