Billy Crystal will be hosting the Oscars, and it seems all the young folks are upset that a more ‘edgy’ person isn’t hosting. I guess this is a sign of aging because I was happy to hear he was hosting again.
I’ve been watching a lot of news about the debacle at Penn State and even took the time to read the 23-page grand jury report. I’m still not convinced that Paterno knew anything more other than what that grad assistant told him, and if he did know more, then my opinion will definitely change, but for now, it seems he’s just a scapegoat. I think he did the right thing in contacting his superiors who were also in charge of overseeing the campus police. I don’t think it would have been right for Paterno to contact the police if he was just going by an eye-witness account of a grad student. What if the grad student’s claim was false and he was just trying to set Sandusky up with that heinous charge? For now, I don’t feel there’s enough for me judge Paterno, although more facts will be coming out, but I certainly don’t have a favorable view of Sandusky and that grad student that did nothing to intervene as that heinous act was taking place.
Last night was the start of NFL Thursday Night Football, which I think is pretty stupid. Once commercial that kept airing was for a show called ‘All American Muslim’. It’s a show on TLC (I think) about how American Muslims are fighting negative stereotypes. I just found it interesting the audience they were trying to reach.
