What is up with that? was my 1st reaction, as I had not even heard about this Notre Dame scandal. However, on 2nd thought I was not so surprised as the media can freeze out ideas or issues. Ultimately as Jessica Valenti wrote at TheNation.com, "It’s time to acknowledge that the rape epidemic in the United States is not just about the crimes themselves, but our own cultural and political willful ignorance. Rape is as American as apple pie—until we own that, nothing will change."
