Paterno's condition turns 'serious,' doctors say

Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno, being treated for lung cancer, is in serious condition, a family spokesman said Saturday.

"Over the last few days Joe Paterno has experienced further health complications. His doctors have now characterized his status as serious," spokesman Dan McGinn said. "His family will have no comment on the situation and asks that their privacy be respected during this difficult time."

    CNN tries to act as if it is a complicated procedure to stop trolls. Yet I have put up 5 posts on the 'Live Blog of South Carolina Primary' blog; they are pulling them as fast as I can type and post. Yet the can't stop the trolls. A load of crock; they stop what they want to stop. Trolls add to the numbers; numbers add to advertising revenue. Nuff said.

    @ Banasy: they pulled 5 posts on a fast moving thread within 2 minutes of posting. "Well, at least we now know why they continue to fly the rebel flag in the rabble-filled hole. But why would you not expect a party whose spiritual leader is a confirmed, self-admitted drug addict to elect a confirmed, self-admitted serial adulterer as it's political leader?" That's the post that they won't allow. Its a load of crock. No wonder people are losing respect for CNN.

    I have always had the same thought when it comes to the trolls....cha-ching!... actually it is quite easy to control them...the last time I had a problem posting with my email addy I emailed someone and they took care of it.
    But in your case, since you just posted ithere, it sounds like they ARE censoring you....

    Good Night, and have a pleasant tomorrow.

    @ Banasy: I had one of those touch screen phones. While the graphics were good, everything else, from making calls to posting blogs, was unreliable; I gave mine to my son and stuck with the Blackberry. Yeah, I think their censoring me. Have you been to the thread? Its moving very fast. They must be jumping my comments. No worries, I take that as a complement; I must be getting under someone's skin!

      What happens when you touch Mmmm's? Nothing.
      Some are linked to web sites, some aren't. Ergo, a hypothesis concerning the phone.
      Shut up, Helen, you don't have a clue as to anything, do you? Stop being a troll.

    He can't omit what he knew to God's grand jury! Why does he need his name on every donations? Paterno library is example. Was he a coach? Or demi-god?
