Texas A&M has apologized for the remarks of an A&M cheerleader that Joe Paterno "needs a casket," which of course got people all hopped up on rageahol and demanding apologies and kowtows and all of the thing courtesy junkies demand when someone has pissed them off, regardless of what the subject of the remarks. (Our editorial stance is that those people need to get fucked in the ear by a water buffalo. )
The subject himself--Paterno--seemed less than worried about the comments:
"I think everybody has to take things with a grain of salt," Paterno said. "Some young guy went up there, trying to be funny. Maybe he's accurate, I don't know."
Again, it makes you want to hug Joe Pa. You'd probably smell like good old man afterwards, all aftershave and hair pomade. Not that bad baby food and adult diaper old man smell, either. JoePa's got his shit together, so to speak.
