We seem to revisit things as a society sometimes for mysterious reasons.
We at LoS don’t know why a tossed off phrase in a court order should generate so much copy five years after the Sandusky story dominated the news cycle.
It “still matters that no one stopped Jerry Sandusky” says the linked article by way of explanation. Well, yes. It matters. But perhaps we should try to understand why it matters. Instead, there seems to be this determination to posthumously cast Joe Paterno into the convenient villain category, as if that’s going to answer all the questions.
