New York Times: "Joe Paterno’s tenure as coach of the Penn State football team will soon be over."

Things (that may be in conflict) to remember: 1. Who the real victims are. Joe Paterno is not one of them. 2. This scandal does not wipe away all the good things Joe Paterno has done over the course of his career, which are considerable. But his inaction in light of serious danger to children certainly diminishes his legacy. 3. Joe Paterno's legacy is not what we should be concerned with right now. I used to say I wanted Pat Fitzgerald to become Northwestern's version of JoePa. Now? I think he's better off just being Pat Fitzgerald.
