Nike - Joe Paterno - Child Abuse - Common Sense
The Joe Paterno Center on Nike's campus outside of Portland houses Nike's child day care facility for its staff. The Oregonian reports this morning that Nike has no present intention to change the name on this building, notwithstanding the outrageous child abuse controversy presently surrounding Paterno and his football program at Penn State. Question for Nike: Is it really appropriate to have Paterno's name associated with a child care facility? Put his name on a sporting field, a gymnasium, the snack lounge, anyplace - but not on a child care facility.
