    Staff Q&A: What's the best way to quit a job?

  • Paterno put football ahead of children

    I am appalled at the reactions of Penn State supporters who continue to stand behind Joe Paterno and aren't certain whether he did the "right thing" or not. Mr. Paterno was told that his right hand man and close friend sodomized a 10-year-old boy and...

    Crisis consultants encourage Morgan State officials to speak up about alleged cannibal
    As Morgan State University has been splashed across the news because of a sensational homicide involving a student's alleged cannibalism, Stephanie Morgan worries about how the world will view her alma mater. In recent days, the East Baltimore woman has...
  • In the end, Paterno cared too much about winning

    As an individual who has seen Penn State football coaches come and go, I can say Joe Paterno was an anomaly, failing to retire after his 70th birthday in contrast to both Bob Higgins and Rip Engle, incidentally Mr. Paterno's coach and mentor. At his age,...
  • Better late than never? Not at Penn State.

    Better late than never? Not at Penn State.
    So they did the right thing. Belatedly. You might say that is better than failing to do the right thing period, but it comes as meager comfort to those who have watched the Penn State scandal unfold and wondered how a moral imperative as obvious as a...
  • Seeing Baltimore's past in Penn State's present

    In Elizabeth Ann Murphy's case, it was the storage closet of her middle school in South Baltimore, not the locker room of a college team. Her attacker was her teacher, not a football coach. But whenever Murphy sees the news coverage of the Penn State...
