I learned early in my law career that sometimes one just cannot defend the indefensible. That's what Paterno's family is trying to do. Instead, just be quiet...Give up the defense. Live with it...like the victims (survivors) live with the aftermath of Paterno's silence. Face it -- Paterno is a fallen hero. He is tarnished. He is not Christ-like and will not be resurrected...He is FINISHED! DONE!
