Sadness, worry come with removal of Paterno statue

Workers place a tarp on a fence in front of the statue of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno before removing it Sunday July 22, 2012 in State College, Pa. The famed statue of Paterno was taken down from outside the Penn State football stadium Sunday, eliminating a key piece of the iconography surrounding the once-sainted football coach accused of burying child sex abuse allegations against a retired assistant.
