The Daily Post asked the following question:
If you could be a “fly on the wall” anywhere and at any time in history, where and when would you choose?
And while there are a plethora of historically significant events that one might choose from, as a Penn State fan, I would want to be a fly on the wall in that locker room the night Mike McQueary came across Jerry Sandusky in the shower with a young boy.
What did McQueary actually see?
If I could fly around and follow McQueary, I’d like to hear what he originally told his dad, Dr. Dranov and Joe Paterno.
I’d like to see and hear first hand what happened, not what he recalls or now professes.
Mike McQueary certainly did not lead the life of someone who truly saw a boy being raped in the shower by an older man. He denies telling Joe Paterno that it was rape. Yet the grand jury presentment said otherwise. It can’t be both ways.
Thanks to that one night–and what may or may not have happened (interestingly, the jury did NOT convict Jerry Sandusky of rape in the Penn State shower–it was one of 3 counts out of 48 total that Sandusky was acquitted)–Penn State University has suffered irreparable harm, not just to its football program and its legendary coach, but University-wide in the eyes of public opinion.
