When Scalzi called it “Omelas State University” he was being generous

Last update on Nov. 11, 2014.

A columnist for The Nation quotes a Penn State student defending Joe Paterno, the football coach who allegedly shielded a child rapist from the law:

If not for Paterno…Pennsylvania State might still be an agriculture school and [the city of] State College might be lucky if there were a Wal-Mart within a 30-mile radius.

To paraphrase A Man For All Seasons: it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world. But for a Wal-Mart?
