Joe Paterno Jr., whose glittering career as Penn State's football coach was tainted by a child sex-abuse scandal, died today. He was 85.

"It is with great sadness that we announce that Joe Paterno passed away earlier today. His loss leaves a void in our lives that will never be filled," Paterno's family said in a statement.

Oh, well, we all have to die sometime.  And that ought to make things much easier for Mr. Pedophaelia since Joe Paterno will not be able to testify from hell.  Unless, of course, they do it via closed-circuit camera.
