Turnaround tip for Penn State: Put women in charge

Penn State may never restore its name. For decades, perhaps well into the 22d century, the world will look at the school’s initials, PSU, and think the ‘P’ stands for “Pedophilia.’’ That is Jerry Sandusky’s lingering, soiled, disgusting mark on Happy Valley’s sprawling campus.

For all the evil Sandusky perpetrated, sodomizing young boys on PSU property for years while an assistant football coach, at least four other men perpetuated it. Legendary coach Joe Paterno was perhaps Sandusky’s key enabler, and according to the detailed Louis Freeh report that was released on Thursday, three other key PSU officials knew for years what was happening and opted not to stop it.
