...and Sara Lampe is like Hiter how? Or is that Pinkel? Not sure how this relates to the destuction of Europe by a Fascist dictator. Take your time.

Let's not forget that Paterno wasn't the one who was molesting the boys. No doubt he made a serious error by colluding with others to cover up the atrocity, but that doesn't negate the body of work he accomplished over his entire life.
Coach Pinkle is right, and Democrat Lampe is out to lunch, as she usually is. Lampe should worry about cutting government spending and helping to spur economic growth rather than election year grandstanding on an issue that doesn't affect her constituents.
Here's a word of advice Lampe, pack early. You'll be moving back to Missouri soon.

Ok, for those too simple to get it. This is about trying to admire Paterno for only the good things. Now I know that Paterno ddn't despoil Europe Ok? I'm just saying, now pay attention, that if you choose to ignore the evil that a man does, he looks pretty good. Paterno didn't molest kids but he did protect the school at the expense of children. Pinkel says that he prefers to remmber Paterno only for the good times. I'm just saying that there are things that Hitler did that benefitted Germany. Do you think that this makes him a good guy? I don't. You should balance the good against the bad, not ignore the bad. There, simple enough for you yet?
