When I opened my paper Wednesday morning to see Jerry Sandusky’s name on the front page (“Sandusky Trying to Restore His Pension,” Jan. 8), I commented, “When is it finally going to be over?” to which my husband answered, “Wait until you see his picture” (on Page A-3).
I am frustrated with the repeated articles and stories about those politicians/sports figures/actors/musicians (you name it) who have acted out their own demise, and then cried “foul” as the consequences of their actions were played out.
I was taught very early in my life that with every action there are consequences, be they good or bad. And that as a responsible adult, I would need to learn to understand those consequences, and with every action I would need to assess the consequences and decide if I was willing to live with the results of those actions. No one mentioned crying “foul” was an option.
Now Sandusky wants the state of Pennsylvania to reconsider the forfeiture of and reinstate his pension and retirement benefits.
I wonder if the children who were affected by Jerry Sandusky’s actions were told about the option of crying “foul”?
