Just an hour and a half ago, Penn State canceled the weekly news conference by head coach Joe Paterno. In addition, university president Graham Spanier canceled an appearance he was going to make tomorrow.
It’s shocking to me to see that Paterno and Spanier still don’t realize the seriousness of their decision not to notify police about former coach Jerry Sandusky molesting young boys. They don’t seem to be realize how cowardly and irresponsible their actions were.
The university spokespersons have said the cancellations were necessary because of “on-going legal circumstances centered around the recent allegations and charges”. I would imagine the lawyers got Paterno and Spanier and would not be rescheduled.
