I'm a cycling enthusiast and I appreciate the courage and strength of Lance Armstrong. After reading your article (The Case Against Lance Armstrong, Jan. 24), however, I can no longer believe he hasn't used PEDs. He's just been shielded by so many enablers that he's been able to get away with it.

If Jeff Novitzky and his legion of zealot journalists continue to succeed in shaming Lance Armstrong, what will happen to the Livestrong Foundation? My guess is that people will stop donating and cancer research will suffer a major setback. As a sports fan, do I think Armstrong used PEDs? Sure. As a cancer survivor, do I care? Absolutely not!

Loss of an Angel
Thank you, Joe Posnanski, for introducing me to the Green family and their lovely daughter, Christina (POINT AFTER, Jan. 24). We are so accustomed to violence being broadcast in the media that on the surface this was just another news story about the tragic death of a nine-year-old—that is, until your words allowed me to get to know and then grieve for another human being.
