Money didn’t molest those kids in Happy Valley, but money smashed the moral compass that caused those in power to not stop a known pedophile. The Penn State football program is the third-highest revenue-producing program in the country, generating over $50 million a year (not counting the impact success has on alumni donations).
The Catholic Church faced a similar dilemma with its pedophile priests. The Church brand was too valuable to be put at risk even though children were being molested.

Dear John: Is He Back for Good? Or Bad?
I would like you to weigh in on my situation. My husband of five years and I separated a couple of months ago when I found out he was having an affair with a woman he works with. We had been having problems and this was kind of the last straw and I asked him to leave and he did.
He recently got in touch with me and expressed his sincere desire to reconcile. His relationship with the woman is over and he wants to get back together with me. I didn’t press him on it, and I don’t know for sure why his affair ended. All I know is he wants to get back together.
I want us to be together, too. The time since he has been gone has been the unhappiest of my life and I want to put this behind us and move on. The problem is, I am surrounded by people who are trying to talk me out of it. My friends, relatives, everyone. They never liked my husband much and now all the venom is coming out. I could just ignore them all and do what my heart says to do, but it’s not that easy. Don’t you think if this is something I think is right for ME, everyone else should stay out of it and wish me well? Even if his girlfriend dumped him, that doesn’’t change the fact that he wants to be with me, so what business of it is anyone else’s? I don’t like the fact that he had an affair either–if I can get over it, why can’t they??
So do I follow my heart, do what I think is right, and take him back? Not doing that feels like letting everyone else run my life, so I am looking for an opinion from someone who is objective.
