The Yankees really do suck…
With a weasel poll!
Presidents, monkeys, and more….
Think about it: the reputation, vitality, and continued ability to do grand and good things creates the ultimate utilitarian trap into corruption.
As long as Lord is on its board, we will know that Penn State isn’t serious about changing the sick culture created by Joe Paterno, and that if another Jerry Sandusky is suspected of molesting boys in the showers, the response of its officials is likely to be, again, “What’s best for the football program.”
Yesterday, the NCAA prematurely lifted its remaining sanctions on Penn State, deceptively declaring a victory and retreating because its sanctions were about to be declared illegal.
The Rick Curl case is the ethics alarm that won’t stop ringing.
Yes, a coach attacking student is far short of child-molesting, but that’s really irrelevant: the syndrome is exactly the same. Rutgers, top to bottom, placed winning basketball games above sportsmanship, decency, fairness, and protecting their own students. The difference between Rutgers and Penn State is Joe Paterno and moral luck.
The Paterno family hired some smart lawyers to make the case that Joe Paterno wasn’t at the center of the Penn State train Wreck. Nothing unethical about that, but don’t be confused about the result.
The Penn State Disease is pernicious and widespread.
