"Success with Honor" is the motto of Penn State's athletic program. They got it half right.

The alleged sexual abuse of young boys by former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky is disgusting, outrageous, and immoral.

While the Left and their media minions celebrate the growing Occupy protest movement, these same people have likely been reveling in the Major League Baseball playoffs.
