Author of "Tour de Lance" on Lance Armstrong

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency today slapped Lance Armstrong with a life-time ban and said the superstar cyclist will be stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, after Armstrong announced he's giving up his battle to clear his name of doping charges.

Armstrong maintains he's innocent, that he's never used performance enhancing drugs, and that he's never once tested positive.

So why then is he giving up the fight to clear his name and save his legacy?

Bill Strickland, editor-at-large at “Bicycling” magazine, has followed Armstrong's career from the beginning. He shares his take with Anderson.

Raw Politics: Romney 'birther' remark

Mitt Romney revived the sensitive "birther" issue today while campaigning in his birth state of Michigan.  Romney remarked that he and his wife, Ann, were born at nearby hospitals and stated 'I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born... No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.'

Empire State Building shooting witness

Alex Nott is visiting New York City and heard gunshots near the Empire State Building this morning, and documented the scene with video shot on his cell phone.

The video you will see shows the gunman on the ground, along with wounded bystanders. This is part of the crime scene, located on a crowded city street. This video was shot during the aftermath of the shooting, and is graphic and terrifying.
Anderson Cooper spoke to Alex about what he witnessed.

Producer's Notebook: Day 2 in Haiti bracing for Tropical Storm Isaac

In a short amount of time the rains from Tropical Storm Isaac will soak Haiti. As I'm writing this rain is starting to fall and clouds now cover what was a bright, sunny sky earlier this morning.

As we made our way through some of the camps yesterday many living there told us they were unaware that the storm was headed their way.

Letters to the President #1313: 'Like a Hurricane'

Reporter's Note: I write a letter to President Obama every day.  He has not complained, which is sort of odd when you think about it.

Dear Mr. President,

Have you had a lot of experience with hurricanes? I have. Big ones, little ones, day time, night time. I have great sympathy for people whose homes are struck, but I also find these big storms fascinating, especially when you are in position for the eye to pass right over you.

One minute, the heavens are dark and roaring. The next, the winds fade, the rains stop, and for a few, glorious moments the sky is blue. It is tempting at such times to think the worst is past. Then the back half of the hurricane comes tearing over you.

I mention it because... well, it's interesting... and also because you have been holding your own in this re-election bid. You generally come out slightly ahead in most polls. You're raising a decent amount of money. It might be tempting, with Romney struggling to gain any real traction, to think the worst winds have passed; like you can count on the race to sail on pretty much as it has, giving you a narrow, but real victory.

Here is my advice: beware the back side of the storm. The Romney team has clearly kept a lot of their campaign cash in reserve, and when they start unleashing it over the next two months, I think you are in for a buffeting... even if it is the GOP convention that gets rained on.

Call if you have a moment. Flying back to DC from New York tonight, so I'll be up late.
