So the times have changed. Working with a small group of members, Spanier was able to spoon feed the board its agenda and course of action, according to the Freeh report. But the scandal raises deeper questions about our society. Thus it is somehow "unfathomable and illogical" that someone with Spanier's impeccable credentials, and tragic past, would do anything that might repeat the sins of that past. If he did, I guess he gets what he deserves. Ignore them and cheer on your team to victory.
When faced with the choice to grow or shrink, Spanier chose growth and he made it happen.
Then Thursday, Americans for Truth About Homosexuality launched its inevitable broadside against gays and the Westboro Baptist Church announced plans for one of its protests at the Penn State-Nebraska game on Saturday. How did you mentally reset for ? God, what is my responsibility?
The freakish memory Spanier used as a parlor trick did not impress everyone.
