The folks over at Onward State have the news on this one, as earlier today the artist responsible for the famed mural on Heister Street removed the halo above Joe Paterno's head.

The artist, Michael Pilato, stated that he would add a halo above a person's head when they passed away as a reminder of our brief time here on Earth. Perhaps he's also been speaking to shadowy Penn State professors.
