I just heard on France2 that Zabel's green jersey for 1996 will be erased by
ASO in their history due to the doping admission.

I wondered where a promoter of a UCI race arrogates the power to revise the
final standings of an approved race. It seems that if one looks, in the
future, to see who did what, then the only official records are UCI, as they
may decide to annotate, but not that of the promoter.

This rewriting of history is getting really silly. But it must be admitted
that politically correct originates here, so I guess the outcome is in
evolution.

So, which is the better launch for a rant; Stalinist photo editing to remove the
offender or the ancient Pharoah having the heretic's name chiselled from the
monuments?

Hell, let's just go with both and point out that both Stalin and the Pharoah
look silly now.

If they're all dopers, the record books must be wiped clean from the
moment they all signed the loyalty oath and pledged a year's salary to
the War on Doping.

Wait a minute-- some didn't sign, and some didn't admit to past sins
and crimes.

Well, let this be a lesson for any who are thinking about coming clean
(so to speak):

What about Virenque's jerseys from the nineties, unless of course a male
goose is no longer a gander.

The question is more whether une jars is a gander.

ASO only strips jerseys from non-Frenchmen.

Wow, a little touchy there, Sandy. Is it not true that Virenque
doped? And is it not true that it doesn't matter to the majority
of French fans that he doped, that he's still considered a hero
of Le Tour?

C'est vrai.

They'll be painting people out of the official photos next, like Stalin.

To put it in terms a fatty master would like, it all comes down to
whether you prefer foie gras to andoulette.
