The news of the coverup -- and the longtime coach's subsequent firing -- inspired the quick creation of a shot to to commemorate this hottest of current events: the Joe Paterno.

Another anonymous correspondent took it further:
I am a jokester, and a very open minded person. But your Paterno Shot article is in absolute bad taste. I am personally going to urge clients to not support Denver Westword, and will be also writing Village Media.
There were children injured in this story, and your insensitivity to the issue makes you just as bad as those involved.
To the showers.
