What’s Smart and What's Right

As we go to press for our December issue, the news media is awash in stories involving Penn State, Jerry Sandusky and child molestation. Whatever your opinion of the guilt or innocence of the parties involved, a quick study of the timeline makes it clear that Penn State mishandled an already bad situation by failing to follow up on internal reports of suspected abuse.

Yet based on reader comments to an article I wrote for ("Penn State Sex Abuse Scandal: From the Start, a Risk Management Nightmare") on the risk management aspects of the case, you would think I had tied Joe Paterno to the bumper of a Hummer and dragged him through a field of broken glass. Some readers posted outraged comments that writing about Penn State’s risk management situation was sensationalistic and that all parties were innocent until proven guilty.
