Penn state

Final thoughts on the Penn State affair.  I read this post from a blog I occasionally read.  The most interesting thing about it is the thoughts of one of the commentors.  As we all think that this is a tragedy, he like I did, tried to look at it from the side of those who did not report it.  What we see is that laws, regulations and institutional rules throw restrictions in the way reporting situations such as this that make people think twice about doing the right thing.  It is the law of unintended consequences.
