Lance Armstrong is reportedly ready to confess to drug use in an interview being taped today with Oprah Winfrey. In the lead-up to the interview, David Walsh, sports editor of Britain's Sunday Times, placed an ad in the Chicago Tribune—Winfrey's hometown paper—offering a list of questions she should ask the disgraced cyclist. Walsh has written extensively on doping scandals in cycling and published three books about Armstrong himself—L.A. Confidentiel (written with Pierre Ballester); From Lance to Landis: Inside the American Doping Controversy at the Tour de France; and Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong, which was published last year.
