Go ahead. I know I am going to get a ton of heat for the headline on this story. I don’t care. Former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno has been diagnosed with lung cancer. It’s treatable. But let’s face it, he’s 84-years-old and well…. his clock is almost done ticking.
How is one supposed to have compassion on a guy who allowed children to be raped? Yeah…. Can’t answer that one. I call this karma.
Paterno’s son, Scott Paterno made the announcement to the AP,
“Last weekend, my father was diagnosed with a treatable form of lung cancer during a follow-up visit for a bronchial illness. As everyone can appreciate, this is a deeply personal matter for my parents, and we simply ask that his privacy be respected as he proceeds with treatment.”
I am sorry, but Joe Paterno won’t be having any matter be left alone or private. Even after he passes. His name will forever haunt Penn State, the victims, and their families.
