Great googily-moogily, those French are cheesed-off at Lance for taking the Tour
de France so many times. It's funny to watch, really, as now they try to spin again
that he couldn't have beat them fair and square. Anyway, this is the quote that
really tickled me:

Leblanc [director of the Tour] suggested that in the future, urine samples
could be stashed away for future testing as detection methods improve — another possible
weapon in the fight against doping.

"We're so tired of doping that all means are good as long as they are morally acceptable,"
he told L'Equipe.

"morally acceptable" to a Frenchman? I'd say the field is wide open then.
