    While I believe that their lawsuit against me was meritless and unfair, and while I am spending a lot of money to resolve it, I have since 2013 tried to take full responsibility for my mistakes and inappropriate conduct, and make amends wherever possible, i rode my heart out for the Postal cycling team, and was always especially proud to wear the red, white and blue eagle on my chest when competing in the Tour de France.

  4. Scott Campbell:

    If you want to ask why people are sending things like this right now, a better question may be why wouldn't they be sending things like this ? in 1935, people were sending dimes in postal envelopes, letters with the same threats or the same promises that you'll become famous. So why wouldn't people still do this ?
