What to believe…

By The Mercury

We hope the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which has brought formal doping allegations against cyclist Lance Armstrong, is wrong.

We hope so because we want to believe that Mr. Armstrong, who won the world’s most famous bicycle race, the Tour de France, a record seven consecutive times, has played fair. We want to believe that Mr. Armstrong passed all those hundreds of tests designed to catch cyclists who use banned substances because he was clean, not because he outsmarted the testers. We want to believe he never failed a test because there was nothing in his blood that didn’t belong there.
