Note: The whole situation causes vertigo, makes one nauseous. The hurt is the bigger story, the tragedy for the families and children. This post is way way way down there in importance compared to the horror of what took place. This post only talks about an old man.
——————————————————————-

An Ohio State Buckeye friend wrote to me today. “It’s a shame what they are doing to Joe PA.”

I agree. 84 years of integrity and people want to hang the old man.

My take:

He’s a coach. He follows the rules.

He reported it. He knew there was an ongoing investigation. He thought it was being handled, he was told it was being handled.

It’s not in that generation to second guess the line of command.

What’s he supposed to do? Become a cop? A private citizen trying to get to the ‘bottom of things’ like in a cheap movie after he told his superiors about the ex-coach Sandusky?

What about the human factor? He worked with Sandusky, built Penn State with the guy for thirty years and he hears this? Wouldn’t that shock you to the core? Wasn’t Joe in shock?

He must have heard about the prior complaints after this happened and that there was an investigation ongoing. What was he to do? Wouldn’t anyone assume the poor child was attended to?

Joe’s a coach. A single minded driven entity. Most wins in history. You don’t get that type of single minded success being the most well rounded human. He probably just turned it off after reporting it and went back to Penn State football and the next game, just like he wanted to this week.

What gets me are all the losers pointing their crooked fingers at the great man and trying to dance on his misery and burn him at the stake. I guess it takes them out of the reality of their failed lives for a while and makes them feel superior for once in their lives. Good for them. Good for the mob.

Did he make the best decision on the matter? No. He should have assumed his bosses wouldn’t call the police and that they would try to cover it up. He should have assumed gross incompetence and criminal acts from his bosses.
He should have got a Colombo coat and ‘sniffed around for clues.’ But he didn’t, he’s not perfect, who is?

Nope, he’s just an old coach that loves Penn State football and he assumed too much and put his head down and went about his business.

Surprisingly Refreshing Comment From Jin Liqun, Chairman of Chinese Wealth Fund, by Richard Uzelac

The last website you can expect me to be spending time on is AlJazeera.net and possibly the last person I’m willing to read about is a Communist Wealth Fund Chairman, but…
whether it’s a case of ‘keeping the enemy close’ or just plain curiosity, I found myself watching and reading about the video below.

In the clip Jin Liqun simply but surprisingly states the obvious: the Euro-Union is unfair and doesn’t work.

He states and example where some Euro members have to work hard until they are 65 where other members in other countries stop work at 55 to enjoy a life of leisure. The inequity of the situation that allows some to retire early in one country while in another country, the members have to continue working to support and pay for the early retirees is a simple microcosm of the world order today: This is why it’s all falling apart.

Jin Liqun goes on to point out the obvious (at least to him and Richard Uzelac) that allowing some to live off the government dole while others toil away to pay for it all, breeds, ‘sloth and laziness’ in the early retiree countries. Duh. But God Bless you Jin Liqun. I still have no trust for Al Jazeera’s motives.

So Atlas is Shrugging in Europe, while the idiots at Occupy are pointing their crooked fingers at the ‘Rich’ who create the jobs and move our country forward. Hmmmmm, but that’s another story.
