    FILE - In this file photo from Dec. 13, 2011, Joe Amendola, attorney for former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky who is accused of molesting boys over a 15-year period, talks with media outside the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Pa. Amendola has been second-guessed for allowing Sandusky to go on network television and speak at length with a reporter for The New York Times after his arrest. Despite Sandusky?s delay requests, it now appears his case will get under way Tuesday, June 5, 2012, with selection of jurors from among neighbors in the area around Penn State, a location that before November could be called Happy Valley without a hint of irony or bitterness.

    This Wednesday, May 2, 2012 photo shows a copy of the New York Times published on May 8, 1945, featuring a story by former AP Paris bureau chief Ed Kennedy, at the home of his daughter, Julia Kennedy Cochran, in Bend, Ore. Kennedy was dismissed by The AP after he became the first journalist to file a firsthand account of German officials surrendering unconditionally to Allied commanders at a former schoolhouse in Reims, France. Sixty-seven years later, AP President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Curley said that Kennedy was right to stand up to the censors, and should have been commended, not fired. Cochran said she was ?overjoyed,? that the AP had taken an interest in exonerating him. ?I think it would have meant a lot to him,? she said. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
