Penn State

Really, I don't want to delve too deep into the Jerry Sandusky/Joe Paterno/Penn State ordeal.  There have been millions of words written by people far more knowledgeable than me.

However, with all that has gone on, I cannot ignore it completely.

I will just say, be careful who you put up on a pedestal.  Be careful who you put your trust in.  Be careful who you hold up as role models.  Find colleagues, relatives, people in your circle of friends, people you know to admire.  Football players and coaches, professional athletes of all ilk, are not role models.  Just ask Charles Barkley.  Sure, some really are, but don't put your trust in someone just because they are famous and appear to be good people.  Your real heroes and role models are in your own neighborhood and community.

That is all.
