Statement from Penn State: Removal of the Joe Paterno Statue

As received this morning.  Personally I think this is a good idea that truly is in the best interests of the University.  Good move on the part of President Erickson, although I suspect there will be some Paterno-worshipers out there who will object.  Note to them:  your hero enabled a pedophile.  Deal with it.

Penn State president issues statement related to Paterno statue

Penn State President Rodney Erickson issued a statement today (July 22)
related to the removal of the Joe Paterno Statue. The statement reads in part,
"Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to those victims of Mr. Sandusky
and all other victims of child abuse ... I now believe that, contrary to its
original intention, Coach Paterno's statue has become a source of division and
an obstacle to healing in our University and beyond."
