    Joe Pa in bad shape??

    Friend texted this to me...

    Scout.com: Joe Paterno Thread

    Man, things declined rapidly after getting fired... Lung cancer, broken hip, and now this (whatever it is).

    Re: Joe Pa in bad shape??

    Search "Paterno" on twitter and you'll see a lot of posts in the past couple of hours saying he's gravely ill, been given his last rites, extended family is all going to the hospital. Doesn't look good for him.

    As someone who has lost a family member after they took him off a respirator, I can say that it's peaceful for the dying person but the waiting and listening is terrible on everyone else. I feel awful for his family.

    From twitter...

    Seth davis @SethDavisHoops Excitement tempered by report that Joe Paterno is near death. His family has been summoned to his bedside.

    Spoken by someone who has probably never lost a family member.

    The man clearly made mistakes in his life. Big ones. Doesn't mean I wish death upon them. Really feel for his family.

    Joe Paterno was also a man who accepted pedophiles and let them use his facilities. Rest in Agony.

    Hitler was responsible for the deaths of millions of Jews, Poles, and people of other "impure" races. Joe Paterno failed to report a case of sexual abuse up the chain in the proper fashion.

    Yup, those seem about equivalent to me...
