Armstrong stripped of titles, do we care?

So Lance Armstrong has given up his fight against the powers that be in the cycling world. They claim he has doped based on various testimony to the fact. He has passed 500 different tests to detect doping as administered by the governing body. Armstrong Thursday chose to walk away from the fight and leave the distractions behind him in order to focus on his foundation work. He has been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles. Do we really care? About as much as I cared when American lost the America's Cup in boat racing. We know, he knows and those he beat know who won those races. All the good work he's done in cancer research advocacy and awareness far outweighs this cycling world's ability to try and erase the world's memories and re-write history. Did he dope? The debate will rage on among the limited few who care.
