Posnanski on Paterno on 16/8/12 | Tipped by Quickish |
No, I don't feel about Joe Paterno the same way I did when I started writing the book. But I don't feel about him the way his most blistering critics feel. He was a human being, filled with ideals and flaws, honesty and hypocrisy, charity and selfishness, modesty and the refusal to abdicate his throne. There was little simple about him. I chased the complicated story of a man and his long life. (via USA Today) , on his complicated relationship with the biography he wrote about Joe Paterno, which began before the Sandusky scandal started and was filed before the full scope of the punishments were meted.
