    Let me tell you that the correlation of pedophilia and gay adoption that Warren Olney presented was offensive.  My body froze; I actually tensed-up when the transition occurred from a conversation about Sandusky's reputation within the State College community as a suspected pedophilie to gay adoptions and foster care.  There was NO basis for the transition. There was no explanation why a conversation on gay adoptions would be correlated to Sandusky's pedophilia.  The transition occurred as a seamless, normal discussion of pedophilia.  
    I will tell you that I found the discussion of gay adoptions to be a postive one, but how is it justifiable to have such a discussion in correlation to pedophilia?  It is disappointing that such a correlation occurred.  It is disappointing that you defend it!

      I don't condone or defend the 'correlation'.  It was sloppy and dumb.  What I reject is the notion that this marks Olney as a right wing tool or homophobe, when based on my knowledge of him and his show for the past twenty years is NOT TRUE, and I think you'd agree that the content of the show you listened to proves that.  

      It's not the stupid hook I'm defending, it's the idea that it's any more than an ill-thought out and presented hook for the show which you yourself have already said was a positive discussion.  

      That's all.
