- The situation at Penn State is still a huge shock to me. Before all of this news broke, it was hard to imagine the kind of scenario that could lead to Joe Paterno being fired. My sister is an alum, and I’ve been there a number of times. People not familiar with the school and the town of State College have trouble understanding the level of reverence that community has for “JoePa”. It’s intense to the point of being creepy. I’m not even remotely surprised by the reaction. Or that the story itself was largely buried until after Paterno broke the all-time wins record last month.
– There’s so much irony here, it’s hard to know where to start.
– Tim Fernholz has a good overview of the latest in the Obama Administration’s medical marijuana crackdown.
– Can anyone explain how this man was actually elected governor of a state?
