This final note on the way out, which comes with the observation that the president and CEO of Nike, Mark Parker, is a graduate of Penn State.

Until this morning the daycare facility at Nike headquarters near Beaverton, Ore., was officially called the Joe Paterno Child Development Center.

After the release of the report today outlining what Paterno knew about the sex abuse scandal at Penn State, Parker said he’s gonna change the name.
