To Harrisburg, Pennsylvania now, where Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz were in court today, for charges related to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case. Sandusky has been charged with abusing 10 boys but maintains he's innocent. A judge ruled that there is enough evidence for Curley and Schultz to be tried on charges they failed to report child abuse allegations and then lied to a grand jury.
Historical fiction invites us to experience the exotic and the unknown while confirming our common humanity. I do not believe that human nature has changed much over the centuries, and it is possible to identify with the emotions, passions, and fears of men and women long dead.
