Day of Rest, Poat of Work

Since Sunday is a day of rest, I thought I’d write a poat about Hostages at Work. All in favor?

This is me, at work.

CaRin at work.

Dave in Office.

Leon works with numbers.

Roamie roams the the halls, looking for inefficiency.

Wiserbud closes the deal.

MJ wavers on his staff meeting strategy.

Sohos offers advice on your interviewing skills.

Xbrad lives with his mom. There is a reason.

Rosetta entertains some potential clients.

And PJ finally lands her dream support center job. (She is the cute one.)

  1. MJ – what’s wrong with your calf? I hope it’s not what I did …

  2. I bet Dave enjoys his job.

  3. Ha ha ha … all your links were hilarious. This poat is full of WIN.

  4. It’s really sore. I mean, hurts to touch it sore. I did a bunch of ladder drills on Friday and it seems to be coming out now.

    Like so: http://is.gd/65UBUy

  5. This post is flippin’ hilarious. Nice job pupster. Good boy.

  6. Sore to touch – could be a muscle tear/strain.

    Or did you just work too hard?

  7. Probably worked out a little too hard on Friday. Took yesterday off. I also rolled out the muscles yesterday which might be adding to the soreness.

  8. Goomermin.

  9. .” I also rolled out the muscles yesterday which might be adding to the soreness.”

    That should have taken away most of the soreness.

  10. MORNING LAURAW!!!!!

    Now, go sit with MJ on the invalid couch.

  11. How’s the back LW? I hope you are feeling more better.

  12. Mr. RFH says that episode is “Lights of Zetar”. o_O

  17. Hey there, Pupster. I woke up at about 4 am so thirsty I couldn’t believe it. The heating pad was underneath me, and I felt like I was pinned to the bed. Couldn’t move. I shut off the heating pad and considered my situation. And by ‘considered my situation’ I mean ‘whimpered piteously and felt sorry for myself.’

    On the side table next to my head was a tall delicious glass of cool cool water, but I couldn’t get to it. I was dipping my fingers in it and trying to wet my whistle just by dripping some water in my mouth, lol.

    Finally I had to wake poor Scott to help me. I freaked when he tried to pull me up, so then he stood next to the bed and groggily encouraged me to roll to my face and get out of bed backwards. It worked and the marvelous liquid was mine.

    Got up and came downstairs. Slept the rest of the night upright in an old armchair.

    He got me breakfast and a new bottle of Advil first thing this morning. And he keeps refilling my coffee cup. I like him and I’m gonna keep him.

  18. HA! Do you guys who watch the Sunday news shows know if Coulter actually said about Newt?:

    “I took offense to Newt going after the media”.

  19. ” Slept the rest of the night upright in an old armchair.”

    Was it that cool red leather club chair your doggie was pictured in?

    Oh, and sorry about your back.

  20. Tried the recliner, Mare, but it was too deep and squishy. We have these old little armchairs in another room and one of those was almost perfect with one pillow behind me.

  21. I bet Rosetta couldn’t do this

    That birdie has good taste in music,

  22. Ann Coulter has really gone off the deep end for Romney. She was on Fox this morning calling the SC voters a mob.

  23. Holy cow, she’s lost her mind. What is her problem? What is her “all in” connection to Romney? Why did she “endorse” him so early anyway? Now it’s like she has to say any crazy stuff to defend “her” candidate.

    I’m just full of questions this morning.

    (My daughter’s roommate gave her mittens with Quotation marks on the bottom side…so cute, I could have used them for this comment.)

  24. Mare, your monitor has a spot on it http://i.imgur.com/0Hg57.jpg

  25. hahahah…Last night Hugh Hewitt played Newt saying, “Yes, I have grandiose ideas” then said (I’m not kidding) “That’s it! The left will use that in an ad and we’re done!)

    Newt also said, “America was a grandiose idea,” etc., etc..

  26. Ohai!

    Quick! Kill them with shovels!

  30. Ten hOurs in the rack on sat night is a grandiose ideA.

  31. I am excited to see the Patriots and Giants kick some ass.

  32. Jennifer Rubin has lost her mind too. Yikes what’s happening. This candidate investment looks like something the left loves to do. Let it go Jennifer you sound like a raving lunatic. Read her tweets.

  33. I first read that as “Read her tits”. Been hanging here too long.

  34. “I first read that as “Read her tits”. ”

    Oh, that’s what I meant to write.

  35. Ohai!

  36. This is the cutest poat evah!!

    Honestly, until someone was mentioning her at an Ace thread, I had NO idea who she was. And I’m always leery of the “conservative columnist” label.

  39. nice to see somebody is concerned about the Tits

  40. Joe Paterno is really dead this time.

  41. Aggie, we are worrying about the Tits

  42. HAHAHA…From a Maureen Down article at the NYT Linked at HotAir:

    As Michelle said to Oprah in an interview she did with the president last May: “I always told the voters, the question isn’t whether Barack Obama is ready to be president. The question is whether we’re ready. And that continues to be the question we have to ask ourselves.”They still believed, as their friend Valerie Jarrett once said, that Obama was “just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

  43. I heard, Pupster. Hope he did penance.

    WP, why would anyone worry about that?

  44. “just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

    I need to change my pants.

  45. Yeah, Obama is super special or something.

    He’s a dumb ass.

  46. Oh good lord. (at Mare’s quote up there). What are these people smoking?

  47. how i feel most days

  48. “WP, why would anyone worry about that?”

    thanks for the mammeries

  61. Good Morning from the Mountain Time Zone.

  62. He has a good point. Mitt stop being embarrassed about being rich…I wouldn’t be:

    And Howie Carr asks: “Why is Mitt ashamed of having a lot of money? If Newt, the born-again Catholic, can brush off his cheating past, how come Mitt can’t explain coherently why it’s OK to pay a 15 percent capital gains rate on money you’ve already paid the top 35 percent income tax rate on when you first earned it? This is Mitt’s problem: He comes across in these debates as a wimp. Dudley Do-Right didn’t play in South Carolina. He’s afraid of his own shadow. He’s overtrained.”

  69. “Meh; I have no fucks to give.”

    HA! Me neither.

  70. I know Clint is happy this morning (and it has nothing to do with sex)!

  71. Awesome CB!

  72. Good one Clint and it explains exactly my mentality about the pundits, Romney’s “inevitability” and my conservative frustration in general.

  73. Recipe Alert: I just caught a cooking segment on a local channel for a baked dip that includes bacon, swiss cheese, mayo, cream cheese, green onions, horseradish, worcestershire, dijon, and S & P on olive oil brushed & garlic salted toasted baguettes. ZOMG it looked awesome. Standy by for recipe linkage! Squeeeee!

  74. swiss cheese, meh.

  75. Good morning. I trust everyone made it home safely from their lemon parties last night.

  76. Good read, CB.

  77. Swap the swiss cheese and mayo with sharp white cheddar and sour cream, and you might have something fit to eat.

  78. Clint, it’s funny; at the beginning of the debate I was thinking, “Oh great, another rowdy noisy audience.”
    But within a minute I was cheering and throwing my hands in the air all by myself here in my living room.

    Told Scott later, “They’re loud because we have been so hungry to hear this stuff.”

  79. I’ve with jewstin on this. Swiss cheese = meh.

  80. I didn’t go home, but I couldn’t stay there, Sean.

  81. What do laura and cyn do at lemon parties?

  82. Good doggie:

  83. The only purpose for swiss cheese is inclusion in a pastrami reuben with extra kraut.
    That is the only sandwich that is somehow complemented by the taste of sweaty feet, lol.

    Shut up, it’s delicious.

  84. I dunno about laura, but Cyn apparently supplies the dip.

  85. Aww, another victim of the rotting cabbage substance.

  86. WE’RE SICK OF BEING WHIPPING BOYS FOR EVERYONE ON THE LEFT, THE MEDIA AND “REPUBLICANS” WHO THINK THEY’RE SMARTER THAN US!!!

    Ah, my caps locked got stuck I think.

  87. I really like your swap suggestion Jew. I’m still waiting for the recipe to be posted. Sounded like it might be a good dish for a SB party.

  88. “SB”

    SB = Sassy Bitch?

  89. HAHA! Yes, or Super Bowl. Both work.

  90. Oh, oh yeah.

  91. I’m pretty sure Newt has tapped into some stength the Marxists, Libtards, Elite Media, Republican Establishment and DC RINOs have no ability to grasp yet. And I’m also pretty sure, folks in Florida will understand and sign on.

  92. Let’s hope Newt understands the ‘roar’ if he winds up with the golden ticket.

  93. OK, I’m going to write something that is going to make me unpopular here (like that’s a first!):

    Joe Paterno was an excellent football coach, a philanthropist and a caring man. He graduated more players and ran the cleanest NCAA program in major college football. He had more wins than Bear Bryant. That people would disparage this man’s entire life is a damned shame.

    He reported, as he thought proper, the allegations against Sandusky. That he did not follow-up is strange, but I will not cast stones at a man that I’ve admired for 48 years. A man known for his love and loyalty to his family and players, well beyond their careers at Penn State.

    I understand the pain that Coach Paterno’s failure caused and I won’t minimize it. But, it was Jerry Sandusky that was the animal. It was the job of the Chancellor and the head of campus security to pass the allegations presented by Paterno to the local police and the job of the county prosecutor to investigate and pursue charges. To hold this man solely responsible for the acts of a monster is, in my opinion ludicrous.

    That’s my opinion.

  94. Clint, what is amazing to me is how come noone else ‘gets’ the mood of the country? Newt has indeed tapped into it and everyone else is so friggin timid.

    The country is being dismantled and you’re being timid? Either you are totally ball-less or you are part and parcel.

  95. When Newt’s negatives are brought up, what sampling are we talking about? 1000, 2000, 3000? I think this is crucial:

    In Myrtle Beach and Charleston combined, there were probably 3-4 thousand folks total in attendance. Now while that is not significant in and of itself — consider that every day we look at polls with far fewer folks and consider them gospel truth on everything from elections to mouthwash.

    Lot’s of polls use between 500-1000 as a sampling. Some less.

  96. Well said MCPO.

  97. Pardon my Eeyoreism, but “Aren’t you pissed off at the liberal media, too?” is some fine red meat for the base, but it isn’t enough of a platform to win a presidential election.

  98. “Paterno affirmed reports that McQueary was not specific in describing what he allegedly saw, and he told The Post that even if he did, “I don’t know that it would have done any good, because I never heard of, of, rape and a man.”

    Bizarre.

  99. i think JoePa was from a closeted different era

  100. Paterno lived a life of privilege (he was the king of that mountain), gave some of what he earned back, and turned a blind eye (reported it then forgot about it) to protect an institution he was intimately associated with while several lives were possibly destroyed.

    He’s dead that’s the end of it for me. Sandusky still has to face his accusers and his maker.

  101. Sean, it isn’t just that he goes back at the ‘media’….it’s that he does it by making a clearly articulated point like when he was discussing ‘the poor’ and ‘janitor jobs’ with Juan. Jobs, not food stamps, because these reasons (which confounds me that anyone would have to defend that position because others are more comfy with teat suckage)

  102. I’d take Newt over Romney, but in the end, a dog turd is better than Barry.

  103. “..but it isn’t enough of a platform to win a presidential election.”

    I think he’s been pummeled for daring to propose that young people learn a work ethic, he wants domestic oil/energy used, and he’s talked over and over again about smaller more efficient government.

    What’s your point?

  104. Newton isnt my first or second choice, but this is the line drawn in the sand time. the reprehensible boy king we have now is pathologically unfit for dog catcher much less prez

  105. Hi guys! Have you guys heard there is a primary election going on?

  106. Chief,

    Thank you for posting that. While I DO NOT hold Joe Paterno entirely responsible for the situation, he is culpable. I cannot square his philanthropy and dedication to an institution that would cover-up the sexual exploitation of children.

  107. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??!?!?!?!

    And this week, I get to watch it live!!!

    my life is getting better every day…..

  108. Hi CATMAN!!!

    Pupster, I agree.

    I don’t hold Paterno “solely responsible for the acts of a monster” either (who does?) but this was a man with a great deal of power who could of made a difference.

  109. “my life is getting better every day…..”

    Excellent!

  110. From the American Thinker piece clint linked:

    Newt of course got the big reaction over the week by attacking liberal members of the media who were either attacking conservative beliefs on the whole (Juan Williams and the race card) or protecting Obama by attacking Republicans’ personal lives (John King).

    I can’t speak for anybody else, but I get the feeling that Newt got a huge boost from peoples’ disgust with the way his ex wife’s allegations were handled in the press. That’s where “the roar” started. And Newt played it well. But we’ll see if he can keep that momentum going.

  111. >> To hold this man solely responsible for the acts of a monster is, in my opinion ludicrous.

    Who’s holding Paterno solely responsible for anything except his actions (and inactions)? This is a strawman argument.

    No respect for Paterno from me. He blind-eyed the thing. When nothing happened to Sandusky, that’s when he should have acted. Either he didn’t believe it, or didn’t care.

  112. What does Romney have to offer conservatives who KNOW that Obamacare will kill this country if it’s not entirely dismantled?
    IF he’s said he’ll repeal it entirely, well, it’s hard to believe considering he won’t admit that MassCare is a flaming pile. Does not compute.

  113. He fucked up, but I don’t see him as a villain.

  114. Talk is cheap ain’t it mare? Reminds me of James 2:14: “What use is it my brothers, if a man says he has faith, but he has no works?”

    Exactly. He’s just talkin.

  115. It’s Men’s Day at the grocery store.

    Serious business over there, fast paced too. Guys frantically stuffing carts full of chips, dips, snacks and assorted pork products.

    T-minus 135 and counting.

  116. Paterno’s actions are not on par with Sandusky’s, or the chancellor’s or the ADs, but they’re not nothin.

    And his behavior afterwards, particularly that galling grandstanding with the students in an obvious attempt to coerce the board of Trustees into letting him finishe out the season, playing the victim even? Pathetic.

  117. “Talk is cheap ain’t it mare? Reminds me of James 2:14: “What use is it my brothers, if a man says he has faith, but he has no works?”

    Bingo.

    Anyone who has ever done the right thing knows there is a price to be paid. With his power, with the rumors from 1987, he could have been a hero to those kids who were abused and prevented a lot more.

  118. Evil happens when GOOD men do nothing.

  119. Biggest thing Newt needs now is campaign money. Donate today if you’re willing and able.

  120. “Serious business over there, fast paced too. Guys frantically stuffing carts full of chips, dips, snacks and assorted pork products.”

    HA! I can actually picture it!

  122. Evil happens when GOOD men do nothing.

    Amen. I don’t mean to pile on Joe, and I’m not going to. I feel bad that he passed away with this over him. It’s just a mystery -to me – how he could have turned a blind eye to this stuff. It is honestly beyond my understanding. But, he certainly wasn’t the only person who dropped the ball. He was one of the most powerful, though.

  123. I can’t speak for anybody else, but I get the feeling that Newt got a huge boost from peoples’ disgust with the way his ex wife’s allegations were handled in the press.

    I agree but the SC crowd was roaring in the debate the day before the ex wife was drug out.

  137. I blame the guy who saw it more than Paterno. Paterno reported it to the proper authorities and went back to doing his job.

    – Paterno assumed the authorities would investigate and act accordingly.
    – He had no way of knowing if the allegations were even true.

    The guy who witnessed it, and KNEW it was swept under a rug, now that’s a completely different thing.

  138. “Have you tried crack? You should try crack.”

    No, but thanks for the advice…..where should I go?

  165. “Humn. Could you simply put them in the dirty clothes hamper?”

    So, you’re proposing a clean/dirty hamper continual rotation. hmmm.

  166. Personally, I would have gone with “again.” Or “mare.” You can even shake your fists at the sky with the latter.

  167. You actually take clean clothes out of the dryer? Seems like you’re wasting energy here. I have found it’s a handy place to simply leave them.

  224. Yes sir! The ibuprofen I took yesterday was apparently a thousand years old. This is what happens when you never take drugs for anything.

    Scott got me some new liquid caps this morning and I took 600 mg right away, and since then am just maintaining on a low dose schedule. No hurties in hours. I cooked a nice meal and now am resting on my heating pad next to husband on Lucky Couch.

    Yay drugs!

  237. Glad your knee is better, Dave. Aleve, eh.

  238. H2 is the Egg McMuffin of dipshit blogs.

  245. Gabby Giffords resigned from Congress.

  246. What do people think about this?

    It would be fun to watch the libs and the media (BIRM) twist themselves into knots to figure out to call Newt a racist……

  247. Or rather, will resign.

  248. They wouldn’t struggle for a second, Wiser. All they have to do is refer to West in the ugly way they usually reserve for black conservatives, and the deed is done.

  249. RE: Giffords.

    About damn time.

  250. “*thud”

    That’s how I feel.

    Gabby Giffords husband is a bit of an ass. Outraged Palin didn’t call when she was in the hospital. Why? Her involvement was trumped up by the press. It’s ridiculous.

  251. West would be good… but I think JC watts might be coming back as VP pick.. Notice he has been popping up in the media lately?

  252. Or rather, will resign.

    From what I understand, she just qualified for her Congressional pension within the past month.

    She she and her asshat husband will be sucking off the public teet for the rest of their lives…..

  253. wow. No pass defense at all from the Pats…..

  254. Did I say, “bit of an ass?” I meant, hugh ass.

  255. Giffords and her husband are both unrepentant libtards.

  256. Really? I haven’t heard JC Watts name mentioned anywhere in months.

  257. He was part of Newt’s people in the 90’s Helped to Impeach Clinton, was part of Bush’s exploratory committee and is well versed in Cyber security (SHHH… and he is black..SHHH!) and has a GREAT story..

    Has worked for years in the trenches for republican candidates. Good pick IMHO

  258. Looks like Flacco woke up!

  259. I think Paterno negated any and all good he did with his part in the entire deal. What I find heartbreaking is the people who loved and respected him for decades now feel the need to defend his part in something that is indefensible.

  271. Meh. If he witnessed it, I would agree with you Sohos.

    The truth will come out eventually. I just can’t condemn him for assuming the police and DA would handle the matter.

  272. If it was your son that was RAPED, do you think Paterno acted sufficiently?

    Yeah, I didn’t think so. He could have ended the abuse with one conversation to the police.

  273. >> Yeah, the Christian forgiveness is overwhelming.

    Splain.

  274. >> I just can’t condemn him for assuming the police and DA would handle the matter.

    Unless, and I’m just spitballin here, ten years later nothing happened.

    Nothing. Except more little boys getting raped.

  275. that was weird.

  276. Scott, your comments lead me to believe you think Paterno was some low level lackey.

    If you think his coaching was more important than getting to the bottom of abuse, I’m a little concerned.

  277. The police were notified Mare.

  278. I think you are splitting hairs here but that is just my opinion. I think he had an obligation to make sure nothing of that nature was part of that environment.

  279. You’re not unpopular for your decision Chief, actually that’s what I’m hearing from most people. He was a hero of mine for many years as well. Unfortunately, for me it’s the whole “Not counting that Mrs. Lincoln how’d you like the play” thing for me.
    I’ve read the indictments against Sandusky and Paterno damn sure knew about what was going on. He knew that Sandusky was seen in the showers with a 10 (yes 10) year old boy spread eagle against the shower wall taking it from behind by this monster. He knew that and then A.) Didn’t beat that monster to a bloody pulp. B.) Didn’t make sure he was arrested. C.) Didn’t make sure he was fired. and D.) continued to work with this man and associate with this man for another 10 years.
    I don’t think anyone is holding Paterno “solely” responsible for this child-fucking-queer, but he’ll get no respect outta me, and there’s not anything noble enough he could put on his resume that would polish that fucking lack of judgement to a shine.

  280. “Hey, someone check out that “in the shower with a boy” deal, I’ve got some plays to write down!”

  281. what a dumbass commercial.

  282. Here’s the funny thing about forgiveness.

    It requires repentance.

    You kinda have to show a little remorse to be forgiven a thing.

  283. “The police were notified Mare.”

    Well, then, done and done. Sure glad no other kids were abused IN HIS OWN LOCKER ROOM.

  284. Paterno stated he’d never heard of “man and rape.” Evidently Penn State lives in a happy fun time bubble known as fantasy land…hey, Obama should head over there.

  285. *hearts count*

  286. >> The police were notified Mare

    The Penn State Campus police. Let’s be accurate here.

  287. It’s hard when a hero/someone I respect falls off the pedestal. It has happened to me a few times and it sucks. But I couldn’t deny reality anymore.

  288. I think to be forgiven you have to own up to your part in something and asked to be forgiven besides it isn’t ME who needs to forgive him.

  289. The Penn State Campus police. Let’s be accurate here.

    They’re sworn officers with guns and everything. And they are the force that has jurisdiction on campus. They may not be the end all and be all of law enforcement, but they aren’t security guards. They’re genuine law enforcement agency.

    Which force should have been notified? The Cleveland PD?

  290. It’s hard when a hero/someone I respect falls off the pedestal.

    Damn, woman, how many times to I have to apologize for that?

    besides, you told it me happens to everyone and it wasn’t a big deal!

  291. So the campus police were notified, he’s still hanging around, you don’t ask questions, end of situation. More kids abused. Seems about right.

  292. Exactly. My forgiveness is not even required.

    The injured, they are the ones who can grant or say no.

    I don’t recall Joe asking.

  293. “besides, you told it me happens to everyone and it wasn’t a big deal!”

    I used that line? I must have been drunk and felt sorry for you.

  294. Here’s a pertinent question and then I’m done with it, he’s dead.

    Did he ever express remorse? Say he was sorry. Be aghast at it all? Tell those who suffered this crap that he regretted it happening to them?

    Coulda happened and I just missed it.

  295. I’m not calling Paterno a bad person or anything. I just simply don’t understand how it all happened the way it did. It just seems… Weird. My husband thinks he was simply not aware enough- perhaps too old- to know what was going on so he should have retired long ago.

    And it certainly isn’te who needs to forgive him.

  296. Dave, wasn’t it actually the university administrator that the campus police reported in to and not the campus police itself?

  297. “Which force should have been notified? The Cleveland PD?”

    Well, you take a couple of trusted offensive linemen, be sure to tell them to focus on the genitals and rectum, wear masks, don’t talk, get rid of the pipes when they’re done and we never had this conversation.

    But I mean that in a nice way.

  298. That was four questions, Dave.

    bzzzzztttt

  299. Andy, I recall seeing “university police informed”. Not municipal police. College cops.

  300. Someone clean my kitchen for me so I can mess it up again baking cookies and brownies.

  301. I must have been drunk and felt sorry for you.

    d’uh.

    That’s when I do best.

  302. HS that is one question in its entirety.

    Did he feel bad about it?

  303. well done Joe. Glory to Penn State. You pissed away an entire lifetime of accomplishment, to ignore something so hateful and abysmal that the shame sticks on you like a fat woman on a toilet.

  304. Campus police had a police report from 1998 and Sandusky had a negotiated retirement in 1999. I think the 2002 incident is the one that JoePa was informed of. Family, school, clergy, all institutions respond the same way. Always call the cops.

  305. “…sticks on you like a fat woman on a toilet.”

    Hey!

  306. I mean you should always call the cops. Trusted adults rarely respond the way you think they should.

  307. Andy, I recall seeing “university police informed”. Not municipal police. College cops.

    Dave, my point was, the municipal police may well not have jurisdiction on campus.

    I dealt extensively with two different campus police forces. Both had sole jurisdiction on their campuses, and the local municipal force didn’t have jurisdiction on campus.

  308. I agree with you, osoloco.

  309. I don’t recall him ever expressing any sorrow towards the victims Dave but like you I could have just missed it. I do believe I read where the PD was also involved and even the DA but before anything was done, there was a new DA and everything just kinda fizzled from there. (of course by “everything” I mean everything but the boy raping)

  310. Penn State?

    “This level of success in proposing research, and obtaining funding to conduct it, clearly places Dr. Mann among the most respected scientists in his field. Such success would not have been possible had he not met or exceeded the highest standards of his profession for proposing research…”

    Penn State investigations are somewhat sketchy to say the least.
    fin

  311. See here

    In another development related to the McMails, and going back to his claims of discussions with police, the police chief of the State College police department said today that his department did not receive any reports from McQueary on the alleged 2002 incident. A Penn State spokesperson also said that the university has found no record of any report made by McQueary to the University Police concerning Sandusky’s alleged on-campus rape.

    McQueary didn’t report it to the police, and Paterno reported it up the chain of command at the university.

  312. “1998: Victim 6, age 11, is taken to a locker room in the Penn State football facility, and Mr. Sandusky showers with him, giving him a bear hug. When he was dropped off at home, the boy’s mother learns about the shower and contacts university police. A detective listens in on two phone conversations with the mother and Mr. Sandusky on May 13, 1998, and May 19, 1998. Mr. Sandusky admits to the joint showering.”

    Here’s a pretty good timeline:

  313. The bike job called me up today wanted to know if I could work tonight. 3 weeks off and they give me 4 hours notice. At least it is close.

  314. He is either evil, or a goofy old man.

    I haven’t seen enough to put him in the evil column yet, that is all.

  315. Good to hear, Vman!

  316. There’s way more evil in this that Joe’s part. I acknowledge that.

    sigh.. the whole thing just sickens me, but I’m really not pinning it all at his doorstep.

    Anyway, he’s gone. He doesn’t have to deal with my bullshit now.

    *time to grocery shop cause it’s 73 and sunny here*

    sorry if I was a dick, I apologize.

  317. The only thing that could have made him more evil was if he’d been buggering the little boys himself.

  318. No one called him “evil” but he deserves the scorn he’s getting. He got a lot of the credit for the good things at Penn State, he deserves to get some blame for the negative stuff too!

  319. Facemask

  320. The good thing that came out of all of this? I can’t imagine anyone in power ignoring this kind of thing without understanding the crap storm that will follow them. It’s no longer acceptable to cover for a friend or protect an institution for any reason.

  321. Well, I guess someone just did. I’m okay with that.

  322. It will all come out in the end. (I hope)

  323. Maybe Sandusky will get it in the end when he’s in prison. (I hope)

  324. Oh, turnover!

  325. suh-WHEEEEEET!!!

  326. Mare, this was followed by the Syracuse situation and Boeheim was able to get away with attacking the victim/s and ESPN apparently sat on the story for years. I’m sorry to say that people don’t always do the right thing.

  327. Anyone want a doughnut?

  328. Wiser, I had you figured for a Pats fan.

  329. Weather here is hazy and 70.

  330. “It’s no longer acceptable to cover for a friend or protect an institution for any reason.”

    Unfortunately, this ain’t the first rodeo mare. Institutionally speaking the catholic cover-up should have taught us that.

    It’s just such an absolutely fucking disgusting situation that is simply unfathomable to so many people that it’s often times just not even spoken about. As if to ignore it it will go away. I don’t think Joe or even others in that situation had any ill-intent, I think they probably just wanted to ignore it and not deal with the absolute hell of doing anything about it, maybe it will go away. Unfortunately, we have to be reminded every so often that it ain’t going away.

  331. I might be whining Cyn, but I am going in anyway.

  332. Turnovers will kill you every damned time.

  333. “It will all come out in the end. (I hope)”

    What come out?

    Paterno was wrong to do nothing else. He is evidently not legally culpable for anything. I accept that. Sandusky was seen raping a boy, what’s to wait on besides the trial?

  334. I’ll take one, CB, please.

  335. There are three things I like about Italian ships. First, their cuisine, which is unsurpassed. Second, their service, which is quite superb. And then, in time of emergency, there is none of this nonsense about women and children first.

  336. Oso, the tapes I heard on that case were very strange and didn’t shed light on anything other than Boeheim, his wife and the victim were nuts. The “victim” said he was abused until age 29…what?

  337. Picked off?

  338. Nope.

  339. Wiser, I had you figured for a Pats fan.

    Hate the Patriots. Ever since the won their first Super Bowl and their fans started chanting “Yankees Suck!” at their parade.

  346. Mare, Boeheim IMHO covered for his asst coach, Fine. Looking at victim behavior from the outside is very weird to people who aren’t in the situation. If there is any high point to the publicity in these cases, lots of victims are seeking help for the first time. I know that Victim #4 in the Fine case recanted this week. He is in prison and in my opinion most vulnerable to coercion.
