i'm with you there, though. i brought up toobin's comments because it was on my mind and it's irresponsible in light of just the thing you brought up. based on the interviews sandusky's given since this thing broke, he's beyond cut off from reality. that he could be that oblivious for a lifetime and still hold a job and family life is not out of the question, so it becomes a matter of addressing any implications there. how does he process his sexual attraction? how does he process any basic information? is he so caught up in self-made justifications that any guilt becomes secondary, buried beneath an artifice of a man? or does he even understand guilt like we might? does he possess functioning emotional intelligence? is the case of an evil man? is it something else? obviously he's manipulative, but in exactly what way is what i'm getting at.
