Sorry, the title has a typo. I accidentally added a “wo” into the quote I just heard on NPR. My mistake, it should have read “the most pow erful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized,” (NPR PSU Scandal presented on 7-12-2012).
I am sports agnostic myself. Paterno, shpaterno- never heard of him before this scandal broke out. So when I heard the story, I did not care about the main points of the piece as presented. It moved me, though, because it is a powerful example of what can happen when an organization does not practice the ethical principles taught by the field of I-O.
