C'est La Vie

David Warren on the sexual predators at Penn State:

Here, to my mind, is the interesting thing. The background condition of human life is such, that the sexual abuse of minors, and sexual immorality more generally, keeps happening. Children have been, are, and will be molested in schools, at athletic events, in summer camps, by babysitters, and even by priests and choir directors. That we must always be vigilant against it ought to go without saying. But it remains a fact of life.

Oh I betcha the Ottawa Citizen comes to regret publishing this column.  Apparently, things down in those shower rooms weren't that bad, Warren argues.  Joe Paterno only allowed one kid to get raped.  And those football hooligans rioting afterwards--that was Amurika standing up against political correctness, if in a slightly confused manner that might suggest that Amurika condones raping kids if the rapist is one of those demigod types associated with college sports.

Everyone knows that David Warren is a shitty journalist, but this is frankly deranged.

I haven't thought of David Warren in months.

It was better that way.

Gah... the best thing I can say about this column is that it is marginally (and only marginally) coherent.

But I can't say anything nice about its author.

Just the facts, please said...

Notice they don't permit comments - that often happens with the dumbest Warren columns.

Not sure if it's as bad as the one where he excused Raymond Lahey, and blamed the Catholic Bishop's child porn addiction on liberals:
