ENOUGH ALREADY: In DC, Tracee Hamilton wrote of the media coverage surrounding the Penn State child sexual abuse scandal, “Last weekend, while trying to sit through ESPN’s coverage from State College, Pa., I was tempted to yell, ‘You reporters get off his damn lawn!’ at the journalists camped out at Joe Paterno’s house, where absolutely nothing happened all day long.” She noted it “took a lot for me to feel sorry for Paterno that day … but I do think he could have been left in peace on what was the first Saturday of the rest of his life.” Hamilton: “And don’t get [me] wrong, I felt sorry for the ESPN reporter, too. It can’t be fun, filling all that airtime with nothing whatsoever worthwhile to say” (WASHINGTON POST, 11/19).
