We've already highlighted the extraordinary work and original reporting being done on the Penn State sex abuse case by Sara Ganim and her colleagues at the Patriot-News of Harrisburg. But we feel the need to do it again, since Ganim has now written a single narrative that lays out who seemed to know what, when they knew it, and what they've had to say about it from the beginning.

According to the grand jury, then, here is how McQueary's eyewitness account became watered down at each stage:
McQueary: anal rape.
Paterno: something of a sexual nature.
Schultz: inappropriately grabbing of the young boy's genitals.
Curley: inappropriate conduct or horsing around.
Spanier: conduct that made someone uncomfortable.
Raykovitz: a ban on bringing kids to the locker room.
