The Tour 2013

Le Tour de drogues has started again. It’s a real good way to show off the wonderful French countryside.

I still say the last few years of the Tour demonstrate that American pharmacology is superior to all others. Don’t allow detractors of this great country to tell you otherwise.

Even Pres. Obama can’t take this away.


About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

  1. Was considering writing about same thing, as I am a total Tour-“freak”, and, between you and me, I couldn’t care less to which extent riders are doped, – not because, mind you, I approve of cheating and unfair competition, but because I resent the self-righteous morality-police even more.
    By the way.. isn’t Doctor Fuentes Spanish.., but maybe he is putting American pharmacology to “good” use, what do I know..

  2. Well, yes, he is Spanish but how many non-Americans used his stuff with the same brilliance, as the seven-time winner, who is, American? I was referring to the superiority of American user of pharmacology, of course.

    Frans, you and I are groping our way toward the same destination, I suspect: A Tour de France in which all substances are allowed. What a boon for science it would be! Also we might end up surprised: Really good Bourgogne might turn out superior to the Spanish docto’rs’ devil concoctions.

    • Not to be compared to Armstrong, but just for the record: The 1996 Tour-winner was Denmark’s Bjarne Riis, – (couldn’t resist the golden opportunity for bragging 🙂 – He was of course also doped. Today he is the owner of the Saxo Bank Tinkoff team, and the center of an ongoing witch-hunt.
      Ps. I call myself “Transhumanisten” – The Transhumanist for a reason, so that should explain my libertarian tendencies.. – By the way, I am being interviewed tomorrow by a major Danish newspaper about the ethical aspects of Transhumanism..,, but that is another story..

      • Riis? Sounds like an Italian name to me. Danes always trying to call attention to their secret achievements. (Tallest dwarf?)

        Nevertheless, Frans, feel free to install here a live link to your published interview if you can and if you know how.

      • Always a pleasure to enlighten you ignorant Americans about our great achievements 🙂

        You are very kind. I will see what comes of my encounter with this journalist, who happens also to be a Cultural Sociologist, has a PhD in Educational Studies, is a psychotherapist, speaks fluent french, english and german, is a Middle East expert, is an author, an coflict-resolution expert, but.. I also learned from my Googling that she belongs to what I call the I-am-better-than-you-you-are-a-racist club, so I am not all that optimistic about how we will get along.. – Anyway, – if I find her article interesting and worth my /your time, I will let you know.

      • Frans: You should have quit when you were ahead, with LEGOS, the Erector Set for retards.

        There is no such person as you describe. (You know if in your heart.)

      • I should have bought shares, that’s what I should’ve done.., – Lego company is stinking rich, – so much for retarded.. – By the way, is “retarded” acceptable these P.C.-times.. – Think we are meant to say mentally challenged or something..

        I talked to the journalist, who was actually some else than the person I googled. Same name though, same newspaper, – weird.. – Anyway, she is going to write an article on transhumanism from an litterary angle, – not sure if it will be interesting, but I will see when it is published, – this saturday or the next.

        Hey, – check out what I just posted to my blog:
