Joe Paterno has been fired for his role in the worst college sports scandal ever.

Shed no tears for Joe Paterno. Save your pity for the innocent boys who will grow up into tortured men, not JoePa.

Spare me the indignation over the Penn State Board of Trustees firing Paterno on Thursday night over the phone.

Had Paterno picked one up 13 years ago and called the most powerful law-enforcement official he knew in the state, not just the top campus cop, he might have saved innocent boys from an alleged pedophile — and quite likely his job, his school and his legacy.

Penn State removed Paterno from that job because, finally, somebody in Creepy Valley did the right thing. Somebody followed a conscience instead of a university handbook. That it came 13 years too late will haunt State College, Pa., forever. It will indelibly stain Paterno’s Hall of Fame tenure, as if that matters.
