The awful saga surrounding Jimmy Saville is one that is causing shockwaves around the country.   How something this big could be covered up for so long is shocking and disturbing, especially when so many people witnessed what was going on.   It seems that fame, money and the big corporations covered things up .. the reputation of one of their money spinners being more important that the poor children that were being abused.   Thankfully the lies and the deceit are now coming out of the shadows and the truth is coming to light.

On a different note, Lance Armstrong a hero in the cycling world, has been discovered to have been part of the biggest and sophisticated drug cover up in sport in a long time.   Drugs and cycling have been linked for a long time but to have a hero who openly spoke out about against taking enhancement drugs is disappointing and disrespectful.

It seems, especially in sport, that it is acceptable to lie and cheat in order to gain what you want… which is a sad reflection on society and people today.

What both men have lost is more than money can ever buy.. their reputation.   At the end of the day we are judged not by how much money we have in the bank, or how many trophies we display but on our character and the memories and smiles we leave behind.
