Paterno, the athletic director, and the president covered it up or looked the other way to protect their dumb football program. Penn State was punished (sort of) and then the NCAA retracted or shortened their penalties.

My recollection, perhaps incorrect, is that aside from hysteria and press speculation, there wasn't any evidence that Paterno did anything other than report what he heard and made it the A.D. and President's problem. Which is exactly what he should have done. The whole thing stinks, but I can't get over the feeling that Paterno was a victim almost as much as the kids.

Naive to the point of idiocy, just maybe (and Paterno was NOT an idiot), but JoePa was by far the most powerful person on that campus, and given the nature of that campus, the most powerful within 200 miles. He cannot by definition have been the victim of anything since he held all the power.

Your points are well taken. "An enigma, wrapped in a mystery, surrounded by a riddle"--or however Churchill phrased it.

Or as succinctly put by the Miller Lite philosophers we contemplated so heavily kn school: It's a traveshamockery.
