R.I.P. Joe Paterno
Former Penn. State football coach Joe Paterno has lost his battle with lung cancer. He died today.
The Washington Post interviewed him at his home recently.
Paterno’s hope is that time will be his ally when it comes to judging what he built, versus what broke down. “I’m not 31 years old trying to prove something to anybody,” he said. “I know where I am.” This is where he is: wracked by radiation and chemotherapy, in a wheelchair with a broken pelvis, and “shocked and saddened” as he struggles to explain a breakdown of devastating proportions.
RIP Mr. Paterno.
