Moral of the Paterno Story

“In every area of our lives, we are faced with moral decisions. We should do our best to pay closer attention to the moral law than to the system of institutional success indicators that rewards us or punishes us. The success indicators are rough guidelines for day-to-day decision-making. They are impediments to our judgment when they reward short-term decisions that do not rock the boat but threaten to sink it, and us with it.”
