A 17-year-old sports fan I know named Evan who survived a rare form of heart cancer still wore his yellow Livestrong bracelet to school Wednesday. To the socially attuned teenager, the rubber wristband always will represent the strength it required to...
The Hartford CourantI was in a sports department store last week and saw one of those yellow Livestrong wrist bands on a rack selling for $1. My dad died of pancreatic cancer many years ago. The money for the wristband helps to support cancer survivors. About $500...
The worst part of the Lance Armstrong story isn't the lying, considering more important people have lied more loudly. And it's not the cheating, considering bigger athletes to Americans have cheated. It's certainly not how he sullied the sport of...
The Hartford CourantNobody on Earth could tell Lance Armstrong's story better than Lance Armstrong. Nobody on earth is less morally and ethically qualified to tell it than he is. Armstrong is a liar. Armstrong is a cheat. Armstrong is a bully. In the famously foreboding...

Lance Armstrong has quit the board of his namesake foundation, the latest fallout from allegations of doping that brought about the cycling icon's epic downfall. He chose to resign from the Lance Armstrong Foundation -- known by the name Livestrong --...
After nearly 15 years of defiant denials and denunciations of those who said he had doped his way to success, Lance Armstrong put the lie to all that by telling Oprah Winfrey he had used performance-enhancing drugs during all seven of his Tour de France...
SACRAMENTO — Let's see. Maybe: "Money Launderers for Campaign Finance Reform." No, that probably wouldn't sell. Could try: "Tax Exempt Fat Cats Against Higher Taxes for School Kids." Nope. That one doesn't have the right ring, either. There's...
