For years, I've heard or read "Joe must go" refrains from Penn State fans and other college football watchers. But that was only about football games, a boring offense, a 6-5 record.

Now it's about why he didn't go to law enforcement or a child abuse helpline when a graduate assistant told Paterno he'd seen a former assistant coach having sex with a boy in the Penn State football facility.

And now the chant is louder, and only sometimes qualified.

From Bob Ford at the Philadelphia Inquirer (http://ow.ly/7kq8I ): "Joe Paterno is done."

From Mike Wise at The Washington Post (http://ow.ly/7kq7M ): "If Sandusky is guilty, Paterno would be guilty ..."

From Dan Wetzel at Yahoo! Sports (http://ow.ly/7kqaJ ): "While (Paterno) may have committed no crime, he must fully explain the actions he took after hearing such an unspeakable allegation."

From Gene Collier in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (http://ow.ly/7kqqK ): "It's truly staggering that these professional academics -- including Paterno -- when faced with an allegation so serious and so sanctimoniously mishandled by the Catholic church almost simultaneously, somehow knew only the wrong thing to do."

From a Catholic priest who founded an organization to counsel abuse survivors, via the New York Daily News (http://ow.ly/7kquN ): “At the very least, he should be fired,” said Robert Hoatson. “Any adult who learns about a child being abused should immediately go to the police.”

What Paterno did -- and apparently didn't do, according to the grand jury presentment -- has given child abuse protection advocates a platform to drive their point home.

@aaroncitychurch on Twitter (+Aaron Anderson ) posted this, for those of you in Pennsylvania: "Sandusky story is troubling. 800-932-0313 is the PA Childline number to call if you suspect abuse"

If you're not in Pennsylvania, this might be a good time to Google the child abuse prevention hotline where you are, and write it down, just in case.

Take a look at the photo in this article. It was taken by Joao Silva, the award-winning photog who lost both of his legs in Afghanistan. This is his first photo assignment since then; he also happens to be a patient at Walter Reed.

Welcome back, Joao.
Patients from the Washington hospital, which opened in 1909, will be moved to facilities in Maryland and Virginia.

One of the few existing recordings of Hitler speaking in his everyday voice. Pretty chilling. Deeper than I would have thought, too.

Hitler practiced adding the wild hand gestures along with body movement to aid in his speeches of National pride. We've seen this gone awry with other movements across the Globe as well, how one race thinks a restoration of order needs to happen, rather then finding a way to bridge and cope with differences among peoples of the World
