Excerpt from new post at pipenozzle.com: 


Former Penn State president Graham Spanier is among a group of academics I’d never want with me in a burning building. That’s a literal trust test firefighters use when going to fires, because they do not want to go into a burning building knowing the person who has their back is always looking for a way out without giving a damn about anyone else.  We trained to never go into a building alone, to always grip the turnout coat of the firefighter leading the way in.  Spanier would stop at the door and never tell you he’s no longer behind you . . .

Kelly, I am not a PSU alumni. I contacted the student paper years ago and warned them about Spanier based on my experience. The warning was ignored.

I go to Penn State, the whole scandal is so frustrating. One man brought down the whole Penn State name and community. Are you psu alumni?
