also, let's try to remember that this wasn't osama bin laden. it's not jerry sandusky, where you can't talk about his death without discussing that he was the coach of a national championship defense and accused of sexually assaulting numerous young boys. joe paterno had a second-hand account of a possible sexual assault, researched what he was legally expected to do upon receiving notification of such an incident, and followed this legal obligation (including notifying an administrator who was in charge of campus police). if he erred, it was in not following up with police or administrators. but make no mistake, numerous other people were were more responsible, both legally and morally. so give it a rest about "forget about all those kids," like joe paterno was somehow singularly responsible for the terrible things that went on.
