Re: Reports say Statue comming down!!!
By the way - the above might sound cold to some. The reality is, there are some people that are or would take the midnight raid course. Morality, a sense of justice, or yes - a drunken prank based on the first two.
The statute is a huge point of contention due to the what it stands for and the entire 10 year debacle was predicated on.
Think about it, you don't see many statues of Richard Nixon - do you?
The high flying, super popular leaders and celebrities that cross the lines of law and social sensibilities are relegated to the trash heap of memory. Ye, there are always a core of supporters keeping the "redeeming" qualities alive. But mostly, those folks are ignored and taken to task.
Reality is harsh at times. But taking the statute down due to the circumstances and intimate involvement of Paterno - is the right thing to do.
Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.
