This is a response to the July 28 letter, “NCAA went too far with PSU sanctions.”

The four members of the Penn State University hierarchy – the leadership group – chose to protect their football program rather than protect the children. They chose to put money before the children.

This action should send a message to the students and others that one should always do the right thing.
