I'm thinking that a biathlon rifle would be good. Not a lot of power though, as it's only a .22 kind
of rifle anyway. Maybe something along the lines of a .357 snub nose. Powerful, yet compact.. But
then again, he's from Texas, and according to our President (dumb and moronic as he is), don't mess
with Texas. But I digress. I have a hard time believing that any terrorist organization would target
someone like Lance Armstrong, because although we all know who is (for the most part), the general
American public still doesn't know who he is, or what a bike race is about anyway. They'd rather
still see "ball" sports. If you want to crush the American ideal, then Al Qaeda would have to hit
someone like Tiger Woods, or Jordan. They're into destroying American icons (such as the WTC
buildings), I think they'll leave Lance alone. He has a better chance of some crazy Frenchman who is
an ardent Virenque fan tackling him off the bike during a mountain stage than a terrorist picking
him off as he climbs Alp d'Huez.
