More on Penn State

Students who are rioting and others who are excusing Paterno's response may not realize what's at stake for Penn State.  My friend Stessa posted an article on FB, focusing on Penn State's legal liability:

". . . they had notice of particularly dangerous conduct as it relates to defenseless 10-year-old children and not only do they not take steps to remedy the condition but they provided him with the means to perpetrate these acts," Casey [a lawyer in the case] said . . . It is sad, just the breadth of misinformation and denial . . . The legal exposure is substantial and serious, and they are going to need to be held to a day of reckoning."

Hell yeah they are!

I keep thinking of this famous quote:

"All that is necessary for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing." - Edward Burke

Someone at Penn State agrees:
