If it is true that not one of what must have been scores of people saw any red flags in Sandusky’s dealings with children, then the sexual abuse crisis is dramatically worse even than I thought. Have we failed to learn anything from the sexual abuse scandals that have swept our country over the last decade? Has it not been made clear that individuals and institutions are universally too slow to act? How much more education do we need about such an obvious public health crisis? I thought we had finally gotten past the tragically mistaken idea that child sexual abuse is a crime committed only by slovenly strangers in filthy raincoats — never by our respected friends and co-workers. It seems the Sandusky case may prove me wrong.

The entire article is well worth a read. Yes, the scandal goes on and it’s getting deeper by the minute. Unbelievable.

Becky, why not call F&M and offer to fund an award called the “Jerry Sandusky Child Opportunity Award” for those students who will go on to work with disadvantaged youth? Then, if Keith Orris sounds horrified, tell him that’s what they are doing with your offender!
This comment in under “A CRIME & SOCIETAL TRAGEDY” below.
Thank you! I needed that. I will be back in touch with those sterling, upstanding and arrogant folks at F&M and I will report back to you here.
It took two to dance this tango, as it so often does.

Wow! Is this guy smart or what? See what you can learn from reading LNP! Does anyone know how many it takes to do a line dance?
Please check back later today.

SAY NO TO F&M – 2
As reported here yesterday, I spoke to Keith Orris, the Secretary of Franklin & Marshall College yesterday by phone regarding the Charles H. Holzinger Anthropology Award. His response to every single question was, “It’s a very personal, family issue. It is not an issue for the college to be involved with.”

SAY “NO” TO F&M
Franklin & Marshall College, a liberal arts college in Lancaster, Pa., annually gives an award named after an incest perpetrator and academic fraud – my father. The president of the college, John A. Fry, doesn’t care about sexual abuse. He doesn’t care if your daughter or son is sexually abused.
Do not send your children to this over-priced college that condones the sexual abuse of children. They will not be safe.
This message sits prominently and permanently on the home page of incesttragedy.com (click here). The Penn State scandal has gotten me thinking and intensely angry all over again about the way Franklin & Marshall College ignored, belittled and insulted me and continues to do so to this day.
There will be more later today.

DANGER ON THE NETS!
What do I have to say about libel/slander lawsuits especially as they pertain to the internet? A heck of a lot. Please note that a Writ of Summons (see “BREAKING NEWS” below), is not an actual lawsuit. It merely states that one may be filed and freezes the time frame for possible statute of limitation reasons.
A friend who called me to point out Harper’s filing also sent me a copy of a Judge’s Order dated March 30, 2011 dismissing Harper’s lawsuit against the Lancaster Bureau of Police in relation to the infamous incident at Franklin & Marshall College. The Judge took the opportunity to get a few digs in at Harper, but the case was dismissed primarily because Harper did not respond to the defendant’s very standard request that the Judge dismiss the case.
So tomorrow, I’ll have my say on the internet and lawsuits, threats to sue and playing a lawyer on the net.
Hopefully, I can also improve the appearance of the piece so it is readable. Argh!
Have a great Friday!
