I Am Joe Paterno…Revisited

I was going to write something about the report from former FBI head Louis Freeh on the scandal at Penn State and the resulting comments from folks.  But there isn’t really much more to add to this, so I will just share what I wrote eight months ago when the scandal broke called “I Am Joe Paterno (And So Are You).”  I think it still holds up in light of the report.  It reminds me that no matter how good we think we are, we are all capable of committing grave evils as Joe Paterno did.

Update: I based my November article on a post by blogger Megan McArdle.  Read it.  I don’t know if she is religious, but it is one of the best theological reflection on what happened at Penn State.
