Most Horrible Thing Of The Day: Using THE DARK KNIGHT To Defend Joe Paterno
Facebook is usually a treasure trove of these things, and this photo cartoon comes from there (via my friends at The Fake Life). It uses the end of The Dark Knight as a way of showing support for Joe Paterno, the Penn State college football coach who is at the center of a storm of controversy after he essentially covered up child abuse by his former defensive coordinator. (More on that at Paterno's Wikipedia page) Joe was fired last night, which led to a riot at Penn State. What could have been going through the minds of the people who rioted in support of a man who turned a blind eye to someone who molested at least 40 boys? This cartoon gives you some insight.
