Football coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier have been fired but every day we’re learning more about the sex abuse scandal that everyone is talking about.

The sister of one of former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky’s victims is a Penn State junior and she tells a local paper fellow students are joking about being “Sanduskied.” There’s also the story of the local district attorney who investigated the original allegations in 1998 and then disappeared in 2005.
