Lance Armstrong "confesses" to something he's already been caught at, and expects to be rehabilitated, despite the years of lies, threats against others, and the sullying of the sport he says he loves.

The NRA doesn't blink at the slaughter of 26 people in Newtown, Conn., after years of intimidating Congress into allowing the country to be flooded with guns.
