What Fresh Hell Is This?

A Penn State VIGIL

Couple days ago there was a riot at Penn State, the rioters coming to the defense of a man who was fired from his job 9 years after failing to notify police of a credible report of child molestation.

Last night, something else entirely happened:
Penn State's Old Main lawn glowed with the light of trembling candles late Friday as several thousand students and alumni gathered to pray for the alleged victims of a child sex abuse scandal that has left an anguished campus searching for ways to heal.

The massive gathering outside of the university's administrative nerve center was the first step toward healing, said its organizers, who felt some on campus had lost sight of the scandal's greatest casualty, the eight boys former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has been charged with molesting over a 15-year period.
Good for them.
