The trustees of Penn State had former FBI director Louis Freeh investigate how the football coach and college administration turned blind eyes to a pedophile predator in their midst, and did it for many years. All to protect the “good name” of the football program. To hell with Sandusky’s victims.

Yet the very next day he went before television cameras to promote National Doughnut Day. Only skinny people eat those.
