It appears as if this entire Penn State situation is about to get worse. The question on everyone’s mind is whether or not to take down the statue of Joe Paterno on the campus of Penn State University, amid the revelations that he was aware of Jerry Sandusky’s behavior dating back to 1998, and chose to keep quiet.
I say that the statue has to come down, because when anyone looks at it, what comes to mind? It sure isn’t football. Today, there has been a small plane flying over the campus with a banner attached to it that reads, “Take down the statue or we will.” It isn’t clear as to who is operating this plane, but that sounds like a direct threat to me.
