Kansas City Investment firm drops a tarnished moniker . . . Check it:

American Century Sends Livestrong Brand Into Retirement

Money quote:

"American Century, the Kansas City-based investment firm, announced today that it would be removing the Livestrong name from its series of target-date funds, effective May 31, 2013. The name change comes on the heels of the admission of doping this past January by cyclist Lance Armstrong, who founded the Livestrong Foundation to promote cancer research. American Century has been associated with the Livestrong Foundation and has used its name on its target-date funds since 2006."

This is private money so it's really not that big of a deal but just another example the reactionaries who stood up for the legacy of cheating were just plain WRONG.

Bernie Madoff managed to fool people most of the time. Lance gave it his best shot but things happen.

Mr. Tony,
Just a quick question..
is it possible that the Mayan Calendar is on Mexican time? Maybe this late snow in May is part of the end?

True, there are more than Four Horseman in the area's political cauldron. they are pests, war mongers, happy to cut WIC & Meals on Wheels, and the death of children by mass shooting doesn't faze them. They will continue to carry out the orders the NRA, political arm of gun manufacturers.

Yes, these are troubling times. Even guys in lycra can mess up your day.

Mr. Tony, grab some extra sustenance... just in case. You can't depend on Mayor Pro Tem Circo watch your back.
