    "On the other hand, some members on the cruise are very confident in their ability to avoid the virus. Eileen Miner, the group’s veteran travel agent of 44 years, said she thinks the virus news has been blown out of proportion. While she believes that those with underlying lung issues, health-care workers and those in nursing homes should be protected, the hype has been too much for her."

    wow, just wow. But not surprising from that group.

    Many places. but not all
    I can't think of a better person to isolate than Franco Harris.

    I take nothing away from him as a football player. To the contrary.

    But IMO he has abused his fame by obfuscating facts surrounding Sandusky, what Joe Paterno was told and how he (Paterno) chose to respond.

    Harris touts that Sandusky was not convicted on 3 of the 5 counts that comprised the information shared with Paterno by the assistant coach. Franco's public argument is this "Hey....3 of those counts were dismissed. Why should you punish Joe for not doing more on these counts?"

    For the dim witted people out there, they agree.

    But here are the problems with that claim.

    First, Paterno had no way of knowing if a jury would eventually convict Sandusky on those specific allegations. No one could have known that! Who among us would NOT report conduct like this on the basis that eventually a jury would not convict?

    Second. This makes my stomach turn and why I despise Harris.

    Those 3 charges....the 3 on which Sandusky was not convicted...required proof of actual penetration.

    Because the Assistant Coach did not move in for a closer look, he could not prove "actual penetration". Thus, JoePa was told there was penetration.

    According to Harris, Joe was right to wait a couple of days because ultimately, the prosecution could not prove penetration.

    That is sick.

    Harris can stay on that boat forever. The world will be a better place.

    He only cares about his Penn State clan.

    This had to be done.

    I thought Franco's style of running would have protected him more, but I think it's obvious he had a few too many shots to the head. He's done a few other weird things too.

    I always liked Franco the Steeler, but since he slipped deeper into his PSU delusion, it is harder to separate the two.

    If we are lucky, the whole boat will be infected and the authorities will decide that for the health of the general public the best thing to do is to have the Navy sink the ship.

    I can tell no one read bothered to read the actual article. It was a fundraiser cruise for the Special Olympics and left March 9 and returned March 13.

    Unfortunately for franco, he needs to remember his Paterno cutout can carry the virus for weeks. Although on his side is the fact we dont know yet if coronavirus is sexually transmitted so he might be okay with his cutout

    She wasn't the only one downplaying it back before the cruise. Remember March 9 when the cruise left even Trump was saying:

    “The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything within its semi-considerable power (it used to be greater!) to inflame the CoronaVirus situation, far beyond what the facts would warrant. Surgeon General, ‘The risk is low to the average American.’

    Please spare us. You must think that some “look-at-how-wonderful-we-are” charity work is gonna make the world forget about the sins of your past Coaches and Administrators.

    The cruise set sail March 9. Pitt played in the ACC tourney March 10 and 11. A lot has changed since then. Can we all please suspend petty hatred for rival colleges until the world gets through this?

    Numb nut enabler u fans coming to the Pitt site to defend the honor of the worst scandal in the history of scandals. Please do yourself a favor and try to do some good in the world and stay off our site. I would say hit the OSU, MSU or MU sites but they don't give a damn about your sorry dairy school.

    You think she is going to lose her $5,000 commission over a few people’s lives?

    Not a chance.

    That statement remains true. The risk is much higher for sick and old people rather than the average.

    The media is not inflaming panic? The media doesn’t inflame everything always?

    Being stuck a PSU fan cruise might now be my most feared punishment that could ever be imposed on me.

    They already had the money in hand, so the sinking of the boat wouldn't have affected the Special Olympics at all.

    Apparently what is wrong with me is that I have a sense of humor. I guess that means that your lack of one isn't a problem?

    He said yesterday that 100,000 deaths would be a success. At a 1% death rate, that means 10 million Americans or 1 in 35 Americans getting it will be close to a best-case scenario. If you take a family of 4 plus 4 grandparents, that's a 1 in 4 chance that someone in your immediate family, or parents, or in-laws get it. So that isn't at least a "threat" to the Average American?

    "15 cases. Soon there will be 0."

    "This is their new hoax."

    Its easy to see he didn't take it seriously. He thought the virus would go away weeks ago from his own words.

    you keep coming back to the hoax comment. its been shown 50 times over the proper context of this. its like you are thick or something. you drone on and on about the same things over and over....

    'soon there will zero"
    is he supposed to say "soon we will have genocide"

    on top of that another math calculation based on fear mongering projections...like EVERY single post you make.

    its like you are your own cnn

    go turtle under a rock fool
