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?

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.
