Penn State Must Be Punished

Why is this so difficult? 
 
Penn State football should be punished for the non-actions by its former coach.  The official report from Louis Freeh is out and says Joe Paterno was aware of Jerry Sandusky’s actions back in 1998 and thought it best to cover it up because it would hurt the image of the football program.
 
Ohio State University is in trouble because athletes got free tattoos.  The University of Wisconsin was in trouble because some athletes got free shoes.  Southern Methodist University lost its football program for several years because donors were giving athletes money and even cars.
 
Penn State was allowing one of its coaches to rape children.
 
This is not that difficult.
 
This does not mean Penn State University and all its faculty and students are evil.  This does not mean anyone who ever graduated from PSU is evil.  This does not mean PSU can’t redeem itself.  It has already taking baby steps by hiring former FBI director Louis Freeh to conduct this investigation.
 
This does mean the football program should be punished.  If a college sports program is punished for giving a student money to buy a car, why shouldn’t another school be punished for letting a coach rape children?
 
This is not that difficult.
 
If Joe Paterno helped 1 million people get an education and become productive citizens, it is all lost if he knew even one child was being raped and didn’t do everything possible to help.
 
Penn State does not have to go away and it can rise from this horrible situation, but its supporters must erase Joe Paterno from the landscape.
 
The first step is taking down the statue of Paterno outside the football stadium.
 
This is not that difficult.

We still miss you Stevie Ray Vaughan
It's hard to believe it's been 24 years since we lost Stevie Ray Vaughan in that helicopter crash after a show at Alpine Valley. I've talked to lots of people who were at that concert, which also featured Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, and...

World's Worst iPod: Donny Osmond "Soldier of Love"
It's hard to believe that Donny Osmond scored his second biggest solo hit in 1989, but it's true! "Soldier of Love" went all the way to #2 on the charts. When the song was released, the record company was afraid no one would buy a new Donny...

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the song here...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...
