Every once in a blue moon, the R2G likes to give credit where credit is due. Last night, 10,000 Penn State students held a candle light vigil in honor of the victims of sexual molestation. Finally, no riots, no firings, just a somber scene to remember the boys who were allegedly ravaged by a sexual predator, Jerry Sandusky. It is not often that I give props to anyone or anything here on the Right To Gripe, but I felt that at this time it was appropriate. Over the past several days, students at PSU have gotten a bad name because about 2,000 of them acted like idiots. The fact is, those students were actually holding a fairly peaceful protest until the bars closed at 2:00am. This is a fact. Once they closed and the moronic drunks poured onto the streets, that is when all hell broke loose. My sources who were at State College that night covering the story told me that they actually feared for their lives. The mob turned on the media like a pack of hungry wolves blaming them for all of the problems.
It seems to me that there is always a bright nugget to be found in every polluted river. The nugget that we found last night was the majority of the PSU students are NOT idiots. They are intelligent, thoughtful and righteous in nature. I guess we will see today when Penn State takes on Nebraska in Happy Valley. Will there be riots, confrontations or even injuries? That remains to be seen. There are rumors out of State College that the Senior football players will take the game ball to JoePa if they win today. THAT IS A BAD IDEA! Its their win if it happens, not big nose Paterno's.
