Penn State report: The shame of Joe Paterno

It takes a lot of effort, and thick skin, to read the 162-page report by former FBI director Louis Freeh on the Penn State scandal. When it’s finished, so is the reputation of the late football coach Joe Paterno.

Freeh describes a miasma of deception surrounding Paterno’s pedophile assistant, Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted of 45 counts of sexual abuse. Paterno knew about Sandusky’s behavior as early as 2001 but covered it up.
