Sunday Roundup

Posted: 11/13/11 12:00 AM ET

There were three big stories this week: the sex abuse scandal at Penn State, Mississippi voters' rejection of the so-called personhood amendment, and "the, uh, what's the third one there? Let's see... sorry. Oops." Wait, I just remembered the third one: Rick Perry's epic debate brain freeze! Over in Hollywood, the Academy Awards had more drama than a Best Picture winner, with show producer Brett Ratner self-immolating then resigning, first-time host Eddie Murphy following Ratner out the door, and Billy Crystal riding to the rescue. But it was Penn State -- with its unconscionable cover-up, legendary coach Joe Paterno's rapid fall from grace, and the deeply misguided student protests -- that held the spotlight. It was a harsh but vital reminder that our moral obligation to do the right thing goes well beyond our obligation to follow the letter of the law.
