A front-page editorial by the Patriot-News of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania:
There are the obligations we all have to uphold the law. There are then the obligations we all have to do what is right.
It has become increasingly clear that while Penn State University President Graham Spanier has not been charged with breaking any laws, he did not do what is right - for his school or, more importantly, for the alleged victims of coaching legend Jerry Sandusky.
Spanier needs to step aside. If he doesn't, the university board of trustees needs to take that step when it meets this week.
As for Joe Paterno, the face of Penn State and the man who has pushed for excellence on the football field and for the entire university, this must be his last season. His contract should not be extended.
This is not about age. This is not about rebuilding a football team.
