Re: Joe Paterno Dead At 85
So terribly sad. This is a guy I admired for over 45 years since we are both from Brooklyn and I am a football fanatic. With this terribly disturbing disclosures that we have heard in the past few months, I was hoping he would get one last chance to clear the air in order to minimize the negativity and, hopefully, brighten his lasting legacy. Now, it appears there is no hope for this. For all his great accomplishments as coach, fund raiser, promoter of womens amateur sports at the collegiate level, trainer of football coaches, and community activist - all of these great things will now be disregarded and people will emphasize the negativity. I am at a loss as to how to alter this.
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
