Do you often find yourself dealing with the problem of chronic nausea?

Well, if you are someone who has to put up with a sensitive stomach, you will definitely want to avoid the testimony going on now in the Jerry Sandusky trial.

Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach currently facing 52 counts of sexual abuse against young boys.

Over the last several days, there were no young boys on the witness stand, pointing accusing fingers at the defendant. No, these are grown men, most of whom have kept their shame a secret -- shame created by a man who, they say, threatened them, bribed them and viciously ripped innocence out of their bodies.

Now, in the interests of justice and fairness, this is the point where we are supposed to say Sandusky allegedly committed these horrible acts. But, it seems hypocritical to attempt to whitewash the agonizing testimony of these men, known only as Victim One, Victim Two, Victim Three -- so far through Victim Ten.

A living parade of damaged souls who, long ago, just wanted to be little boys.

I'm Pat McMahon.
