Deep into his Blue-White press conference yesterday, Joe Paterno talked about the importance of educating the next generation to tackle the nation's problems.
He said the next 30 years are the most critical time for the country, to set its path in the world.
It takes Paterno to put things into perspective, and his words were wise to a listening audience expecting just football talk.
Consider the gridlock of Washington and politics in general and think about it. It's going to have to change for real issues to be addressed.
The next 30 years are key, just as the coach said.
