are some in the media having second thoughts?

I will not justify this with a link, because I do not want to drive anyone to the media, outside of BSD and 247, which are the two places I have not found blind hatred in the past two months.


That said, there is something to be said for Pat Forde and his article at yahoo (I was only there to check on Bowman's stats, because I want him to DEMOLISH people today). Anyway, after the jump is a line from Forde's article that makes me wonder if people are starting to rethink how they treated Joe...

"A great many Americans are unmoved by Paterno’s passing, having soured on the man for his insufficient response at a time when children were in danger. But a great many of us also have failed when our character was called upon. Like JoePa, we wish we would have done more, and done the right thing more often. Like JoePa, we will take those regrets with us to the grave."

How many people in the media will look at their actions over the last two months and carry those regrets to their graves? I really can't say - I believe most of them are heartless shitbags, and they have no regrets - but there are times, like reading this account from Forde, where I think that, maybe, somewhere out there, people realize what went wrong, and perhaps that they were part of it.

Maybe that's just me, but I'm hopeful that people will start turning, and we can all remember what a great coach and man Joe Paterno was.

Godspeed, Coach.
