When I think about how swiftly Joe was demonized for failing to do more to protect the children Sandusky allegedly molested, I have to acknowledge the devastation the court of public opinion can rain down on any of us. At any time. Yes, I wish the entire Sandusky debacle didn't exist. And I also wish that Joe Paterno had absolutely nothing to do with any of it. His professional legacy is gone. Kaput. Just like that. Well, although a similar end could come to anyone who works his heinie off to build something great, we all must STILL adhere to the solemn advice of Mother Teresa:
"What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build Anyway."
