Quote of the Day
"Yes it fucking does. If you see anyone -- even your own father -- raping a ten year old in the showers, the first thing you do is stop it yourself. You don't even call the cops right away. You clock the rapist in the head or drag the boy out of his clutches. I'm so sick of these excuses for the inexcusable. McQueary is as depraved as all the others who stood by and did nothing."
-- Andrew Sullivan on the assertion by some that Mike McQueary's reaction to walking in on Jerry Sandusky as he raped a young boy doesn't seem so strange when you consider that Sandusky was like a relative of his, hence why he ran and told his father about it rather than stopping it cold
I'm probably going to be out of the mix for most of the day, but I think it's hugely important that we don't do the traditional "new week = new news cycle" thing with this story. Besides, the scandal is only going to get worse anyway. Much worse, I'm betting.
