    Regarding Joe Paterno leaving. Joe is portrayed in the media as the fall guy for the serious issue of reporting child abuse. We do not know all the facts yet. We do know that he reported the incident to his superiors. My hunch is that Colleges and institutions are hurrying to review their reporting procedures. It is a well known fact many more colleges would not know their responsibilities regarding child abuse or the law. They mostly think reporting belongs to hospitals and schools. As a past Childline Supervisor, I can tell you many agencies, schools and etc. have designated reporters. For Joe to have gone over their heads to the police, could have cost him his job sooner, depending on the power of the hierarchy and leadership. It is not unusual for those reporting to higher ups to allow them to take care of it. Too much responsibility placed on Joe without recognizing how the systems of reporting works. Many people are in a position of losing their jobs for going over their superiors heads to the police. This is a call to expose the laws and educate

    My hearts is with the families and children that were abused regardless who failed them.

    I love it. The Tea Party and their Thuglicans decry a .15 cent charge on trees made in China because the big bad American Christmas Tree Lobby is trying to keep a US industry (ok some live trees from Canada too) alive. golly gosh thanks tea party for helping the Chinease economy and making it harder for family tree farms to survive.
