We're not here right now. But if you leave a message with your name, number and time you called...
What’s striking though, is that we are not holding Mike McQueary responsible for HIS lack of action. If you’re going to lay responsibility on Joe Paterno for his inaction, you must certainly lay some blame on McQueary for not going far enough.
If Mike McQueary saw Sandusky raping a child in the locker room showers, he had the obligation to try to stop it AND go directly to the police with what he saw.
The NCAA just passed sentence on Penn State that basically cuts off scholarship money, and all but ruins the Football program.
I’m on the fence here. On the one hand, clearly Penn State needs to pay the price. On the other hand, there’s a whole other academic section of the school that is now going to suffer because of it.
Make no mistake about it, the school will be fine. Penn State will recoup it’s fines by increasing tuition. It’s the students who will pay the price. Enrollment will go down because of the stigma, and sports programs will disappear due to underfunding.
As we strive to punish the responsible parties, we must be careful not to throw away the proverbial baby with the bathwater.

Now… can I go back to being silly? Please. :)
