(Newser) – Poor Lance Armstrong. He lost his Tour de France titles, and now an English town is going to burn him in effigy in a big way. Edenbridge has chosen Armstrong as the celeb to go up in flames in its annual Bonfire Night celebrations on Nov. 5, reports NBC's Off the Bench blog. The 30-foot version is already in place. In Armstrong's defense, not everyone thinks that sports doping should be illegal.
