Do you remember the last time something in the news really made you angry?
Do you remember the last time some official body took action that you not only disagreed with but thought was morally or ethically wrong?
We'll bet you can, because we'll bet it is not an infrequent occurrence.
One last question: When that happened, did you get the uncontrollable urge to run out into the street and start throwing stones and rolling over cars?
Apparently a couple thousand Penn State students could not control that urge and managed to continue sullying the reputation of their future alma mater that was begun with a sex scandal only a few days before.
Were they out in the street screaming, damaging public property and overturning vehicles because Penn State had cut its educational program?
Did they decide to riot because of the specter of higher tuition from reductions in state subsidy that might preclude some of them from attending next semester?
The football coach got fired.
Nothing we can think of jutifies the violent behavior exhibited in "Happy Valley" last week, but the last excuse has us especially exasperated.
We hope that those attending Pennsylvania's largest institution of higher learning woke up the next morning and made an effort to review their priorities.
