    Thank you, Anderson Cooper, for emphatically and repeatedly calling what Sandusky did exactly what it was: rape of a child (and presumably, rape of children). This was not fondling, or touching of children, heinous as those acts would be. Nor was it consensual sex with college football players, inappropriate as that would be. Even the oft-used term "sexual assault" is a euphemism that obscures the violence of what Sandusky did. The act was as ugly as it sounds: rape of a little boy. That Joe Paterno, himself a father, could look the other way after hearing that his colleague had done such a thing, and perhaps was continuing to do so, is repulsive and inexplicable.

    Where can we find additional information on this proposed legislation?

    It is sad to say and to think of such, but I think it is in the best interest of the University, our young children and the future Penn State students.

    When one is given the Power and the Authority to rule and control the World and the Masses, Vulnerability should not be a solution to one weakness, rather it should be use in the utmost “right way” and “channel” properly so that our World can continue to be a better place for our children and future generation (Matthew 19:14 Suffer Not The Little Children…). One should never stop fighting until justice is serve, were there seems to be an in justice.
