Success minus sweat equals sacrifice

Mixed news this week for those of us who rest our futurian hopes on the development and acceptance of chemical enhancement of human capacities. On the one hand, Barry Bonds finally passed Babe Ruth for second place on baseball's career home-run list. On the downside, there's this:
Independent Dutch investigators cleared Lance Armstrong of doping in the 1999 Tour de France on Wednesday, and blamed anti-doping authorities for misconduct in dealing with the Austin, Texas, cyclist.

A 132-page report recommended convening a tribunal to discuss possible legal and ethical violations by the World Anti-Doping Agency and to consider "appropriate sanctions to remedy the violations."|ESPN|

So it's starting to look like Armstrong's feats might have been due to inborn talent and hard work after all. This could set our movement back by decades.

Or, maybe not.
