Jerry Sandusky continues to display his arrogance, denying any wrong-doing. Ha! His team of rich goons will, of course, appeal. I say, let Penn State, who a couple of decades ago were the Division 1 School who publicly acknowledged "not wanting lesbians on their women's basketball team" pay for the appeals. Tax payers should not carry this financial burden.
The almightyNittany Lions should and I'll tell you why. Those bastards covered it up for years in order to receive booster bucks for their beloved game.
But you know, it's the artists who find a way to right wrongs and Michael Pilato wins my vote this week for a most creative endeavor with a thought-provoking twist. He scrubbed Sandusky out of a mural on Penn State's campus and replaced it with an image of a poet/activist draped with a blue ribbon--a symbol for awareness of child sexual abuse.
A huge HOORAY to the artists, musicians, poets, writers and the animal rights activists and the millions of volunteers who give so much and so freely to the betterment of a community, a cultureand the beautiful beasts habituating our planet! Below are links to some damn great non-profits in my hood. I know you have some in yours, but take a moment and check 'em out; especially Peace of Mind Dog Rescue which started out as a one-woman show and has grown to dozens of volunteers.
And their sole/soul mission? Older dogs.
Way cool, eh?
Here's who runs my castle. Hands down. I don't even get up to go potty when he's comfortably sleeping on my lap. (Or on my side.)
