Scalzi on the Penn State scandal; right in every particular.

Absolutely and truly.

(Unfortunately, a comment made me so mad I had to reply, so now my first outing onto Mr. Scalzi's blog is a harsh response. But even if I get disemvowelled, banned, etc, some things one just has to say.)

I thought your comment was spot-on. Mostly I've been pleasantly surprised by the way my fellow humans have been responding to this, but the "I'm not defending X behavior, but {defend defend defend}" folks are making me slightly stabby at the moment.

Amen, Scalzi.

Thanks, Mary Dell, for pointing me to Scalzi's post.
