The fact that no one (but Sandusky) knew the name of the kid McQuery saw in the shower until the kid-now-man came forward during the trial continues to make me boil.
McQuery getting whistleblower protection is a joke. The only whistle he blew is the one in Joe Paterno's pants (metaphorically, of course).
"There is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces... even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar." -- from Moby-Dick
