As many of you know, Lance has returned to cycling and will race in the Tour de France to bring more attention to his crusade against cancer. I now follow him on Twitter where he is enormously active. Just by using twitter Lance is distributing awareness on a daily basis and he’s really engaged me.
You should read his piece on CNN. It’s a kind of State of the Union on the nation’s fight to prevent and cure cancer. Lance is our leader in this fight and we are lucky to have him. To me, Lance defines progressive politics as he uses his celebrity, technology, and most importantly his mind to improve the planet.
