I am betting that more than any other person in the history of Penn State that Paterno is responsible for that account balance....yet another reason why he deserved better than he got.
Actually its not so. Several ALumni (Halbouty,Heinz, Carnegie, Jones , Laughlin etc etc) had accumulated large amts of wealth and made generous donations and established endowments years before. I think that you think PAterno should get a pass. I was content to have him announce his retirement at the end of this year but, when he made his initial announcement, he closed his statement with "Now lets beat NEbraska". That was the mpost callous thing he could have said and his welcome was deemed to be worn out. His initial comments were hardly focused on the lives of the victims. He was only focused on his fuckin program.
Well, I think the students, as a lesson in maturation, will see that noone deserves a pass in a situation as this. UNless PAterno has no conscience I hope he realizes that he should have done the right thing years ago.
Otherwise hes just Amoral
