Someone just tweeted:

"Hannibal Lecter's phone call to Clarice Starling was less creepy than Bob Costas's interview with Jerry Sandusky."

And I very much agree with that.

There are starting to be reports of Penn State students losing internships from this. There was also a letter from a CEO in our school paper today where he said he would never hire a Penn State graduate because of Penn State's support of pedophilia. Our charities, including THON, are supposedly beginning to lose sponsorships. We raised $9.5 million last year. That number will probably go down for the first time in a long time.

Well, he's an idiot. The normal response when interviewing somebody and seeing Penn State on the resume will be, "It must have been tough to be a Penn State student during that" and then they'll move on to discussing your qualifications, career goals, etc.

exactly. if anything, the ability to rise above a scandal like this and still be proud of your school probably makes you more ready for a role in a professional environment.

It's completely unjustifiable to punish the student body or the professors over this. They cannot be held tacitly responsible for the malfeasance of the football program and a few administrators. I think that the school is acting wisely in coming down hard on the football program, as that should do something in the vein of disassociating the school from Paterno and co, thereby protecting the viability of the degrees of its students.

I'm sure that CEO is going to see his company's patronage among the many Penn State alumns and student drop just as sharply. Seriously, what an ass-hatty thing to say. Like all its students and alums knew what was going on and participated in some level of cover-up?

I'm curious to see how quickly he releases a back-pedaling statement.

Oh, good point. If he's smart, he didn't.

Then again, I think he's already demonstrated he's not smart.

If we ever find out who it was, I will pour unholy Facebook rage upon him.

if your answer is this...



... you're probably a pedophile.
Exactly.

Apparently the judge who set Sandusky free on unsecured bond was a volunteer at Sandusky's charity.

Sandusky's attorney is also claiming that they have gotten in touch with the alleged anal rape victim, who is claiming that the sexual abuse alleged to have been perpetrated against him never happened.

Surely Sandusky and his legal team have to be investigated for tampering with witnesses here?

I mean...seriously? I would think Sandusky could afford a better lawyer than one who would SAY they've contacted a witness...
