Paterno is out, his final chapter, an ugly one, being written for him. It didn't have to end this way.
Al Mohler steps up to say more elegantly what I said earlier, and plainer: Pick up the phone. Call the cops.
But the problem for Southern Baptists is more complicated. The PSU crimes are years in the past. What happens today when SBC churches or clergy are accused or involved in crimes a decade or more in the past? Ask Christa Brown. I don't have a simple, plain solution.

We are a nation of political pundits. Here's my punditry:

Hummon, bro, 9-9-9 cannot be the answer to every question posed to you. I'm afraid Cain has reached his high water mark even if you excise the sexual harrassment talk of the past two weeks.
Huntsman, Santorum, Bachmann...you are all just taking up valuable time that the other candidates, ones who actually have a chance of winning, might use. Declare victory and depart.
