AP wrote today that Al Pacino is slated to play Joe Paterno in a movie about the Sandusky "scandal" with a working title called "Happy Valley." Do you think this is good exposure to male child sexual abuse or exploitation? I have mixed feelings and would love to hear your opinions.

I gather the movie is supposed to focus on Paterno. Wasn't the book "Paterno" basically a whitewash for the late coach?

I haven't read the book (don't feel like giving Joe Posnanski any money), but from what I've read Posnanski is way too generous to Paterno. He paints a picture of this nice old man whose only crime was wanting to give people the benefit of the doubt (conveniently leaving out that you can't give the benefit of the doubt to both perp and victim). I don't have much hope for this film.
