The Power of Narrative
by Arthur Silber  
Posted in Commentary

"One of the themes common to much of the Paterno coverage is the insistence, mixed either implicitly or explicitly with small or large helpings of self-congratulation, that 'we all must protect the children!' The writers who condemn what happened at Penn State (which is all of them) are, by virtue of their heatedly announced condemnation, on the side of the angels .... With so many people so passionately dedicated to 'protecting the children,' the safety of children in the future can hardly be in doubt even for a moment. Yet nothing will change -- and the abuse will go on." (11/15/11)
