Here's a great review on Salon from a law professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder:

http://www.salon.com/2012/08/23/paterno_bio_disgusting_and_disgraceful/

Money quote:

"Joe Paterno was fooled by Jerry Sandusky in the same sense that Richard Nixon was fooled by the Watergate burglars."

I heard that Sandusky is working on a book also. He will have plenty of time on his hands....no distractions from young people (this is bitterly sarcastic).

Quote:

George Orwell’s review of Salvador Dail’s autobiography includes the observation that, “if it were possible for a book to give off a physical stink from its pages, this one would.


The review of the Paterno book mentions Salvador Dali. Dali was supposedly the mentor of the guy who used me in kiddie porn when I was 4.

I'll by my public library some hardcovers of the "right books" and advertise them on local access cable.

What gets me is the propaganda of this. OK, 84 year old man who coaches a Division I college football program has to ask what sodomy is. Really? So now we have Graham Spanier adding to this with the Sergeant Schulz and I couldn't be that stupid defenses. These guys are worse than the three stooges. The article is an accurate review. The more these people talk the dumber they sound like they think we are.

Lets see. The guy was in the army, has a literature degree from Brown University, and spent over sixty years in athletic locker rooms. Went to mass, where that Bible thingy was taught.

Looks like he did live a hermetic life safely sheltered from references to sodomy at every point...
