Penn State turned its back on Mike McQueary, not Joe Paterno. Penn State abandoned the wrong guy.
For expanded thoughts on McQueary being ostracized, read my column at timesonline.com.
But if you want the Paterno cult’s twisted logic summed up in brief, here’s a one-paragraph excerpt:
"McQueary told his superiors. But, some remonstrate, he should have done more. Paterno told his superiors. The cult thinks that was enough. 'Joe did everything he was supposed to do.' "
Both did exactly the same. The former was discarded, the latter sanctified. Explain that, Paterno cult. We are...hypocrites.
