Like Mistermix, I was nauseated by the “let the healing begin” crap. Except I wasn’t watching a candlelight vigil, I was watching a bunch of meathead coaches from Penn State and Joe Paterno’s son. “THE TEAM SHOWED HEART!” “IT WAS A TYPICAL JOE PATERNO TEAM, FIGHTING UNTIL THE END!” “THIS IS PART OF THE HEALING PROCESS.”
It left me wondering just what the hell they were talking about, and what the PSU/Nebraska game had to do with the victims. And then I realized- it isn’t about the victims. It’s about them and their loss. They lost their coach. They lost their good reputation. They, like all sociopaths, recognize who the REAL victims in all of this are. They aren’t talking about a ten year old boy who was anally raped in a shower, and the number of kids who were raped before that event, or the numbers who were raped after even when it should have been clear to every one at PSU there was a major problem.
No, when they talk about victims and healing, they are talking about themselves and their precious god damned football program.

Two additional thoughts:
1.) Like many I was flabbergasted to learn Sandusky was out of jail on bond, until I thought about it. They are probably hoping he kills himself before more secrets come out.
2.) Many of you are shocked by his interview with Bob Costas in which he admits to a bunch of stuff (showering, touching their legs) but denies being a pedophile. Many pedophiles never realize they are harming the kids- they think they just love kids. “I would never do anything to hurt them, they protest, and they are being sincere when they say it.
