I was browsing the web site of the Los Angeles Times yesterday when I stumbled upon an article about former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky expressing condolences to the family of just deceased head coach Joe Paterno. Really? What responsible newspaper thinks anyone should give a flying fig what Jerry Sandusky thinks about anything? Jerry Sandusky is a serial child rapist (ahem, allegedly). He deserves a total media blackout until his ass is put in prison where it belongs.
As for the man he was mourning, Joe Paterno might be a worse “sinner” than Sandusky. At least in Sandusky’s case you can blame it on a mental illness, a sick compulsion. What do we blame for Paterno’s behavior? A man in full possession of his faculties, with enough power and influence to put an immediate stop to the sexual shenanigans that went on at Penn State and he did next to nothing. So, the Los Angeles Times thinks it’s a good idea to publish an article about a child rapist (ahem, allegedly) expressing sympathy for an appeaser of evil and essentially his partner in crime.
I am neither a religious man nor a gambler but I’d wager that Joe and Jerry will meet again someday and it won’t be in heaven.
