  1. The Penn State thing is ghastly. The entire organization’s utter disregard for victims, the lack of basic human decency and moral backbone, the “Let’s just cover for the creep to save our reputation!” (because who could foresee that tactic backfiring, ever?) – seriously? What is wrong with people?!

    It does kind of explain Sandusky’s confidence in getting away with it. He seems to have taken people covering for him for granted, and why wouldn’t he, clearly they were bound to either continue doing that or go down with him, once they’d started down that road.
