    2) No one is not outraged at his actions
    I guess that's why you see all those comments expressing it.....oh wait, you don't

    No, we give a ****, but people(shockingly) tend to talk about people we know of, not people we never heard of.

    Holy ****, you don't hear people talking about some one other than Paterno in a thread about Paterno, except that a fair number of posts actually do talk about him.

    the dude is like 112 years old. he should've retired decades ago. Reminds me of the last 5-10 years that Bear Bryant was the coach at Alabama. all he did was sit up in his lookout box while the assistants did all the coaching. he was "coach" in name only. and he was a surly old codger at that.

    Re: Should Joe Paterno stay or go?

    On November 7, Pennsylvania state police Commissioner Frank Noonan said that Paterno fulfilled his legal obligation to report suspected abuse, although "somebody has to question about what I would consider the moral requirements for a human being that knows of sexual things that are taking place with a child," and that, "I think you have the moral responsibility, anyone. Not whether you're a football coach or a university president or the guy sweeping the building or the guy who actually witnessed the abuse. I think you have a moral responsibility to call us."

    agreed .

Neither one did the right thing. Do you in 40 states the law states Joe would already be in serious trouble for not phoning the police as would the other guy. Hmmmm seems strange. Now the state is looking into it's very inefficient child abuse laws and they will be changed. Nothing like closing the barn door after the horse has left.

    But Joe doesn't live in any of those 40 states, does he? What he did was entirely legal in the state in which he lived at the time that he did it. If the laws change, they don't become retroactive. You may not like that he didn't do more, but he did what he had to do and anyone criticizing him is just being emotional.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
