Penn State gained notoriety in an episode of “This American Life” last month. That got senior journalism major Rich Coleman thinking. (This commentary originally ran in Penn State’s student newspaper, The Daily Collegian.)

I thought the article was well thought out and well written. If I had to critisize it , I would only mention the casual nature of the comment, waking up and seeing a stranger in your home.

There is a delicate balance between any town with a large contingent of temporary residents. I saw this while I was in the Military.

Richard Coleman has presented that delicate balance, in a mature and and concise way.
