• Penn State pedophile Jerry Sandusky says he regrets not testifying at his child sex-abuse trial earlier this year. Sandusky, who’s awaiting sentencing after being convicted of multiple counts of abusing young boys, still maintains his innocence despite crushing evidence against him and the testimony of several of his victims. Sandusky isn’t likely to convince anyone that he’s innocent.

• If you don’t believe times are changing, you need only examine the results of the latest Tooth Fairy research: kids who lose teeth now find an average of $3 under their pillows. Some child psychologists say this can distort a child’s perception of money and can lead them to believe things can be too easily obtained. Some parents -- we’ll be careful not to use the term “wishy-washy” here -- actually are trying out a new app for phones and iPads which guides them in being the Tooth Fairy.

• Who could have ever predicted during the Monica Lewinsky scandal that Bill Clinton would ever be considered an elder statesman, a guru dispensing advice to a country eager to hear his opinions? Yet Clinton, possibly because the country enjoyed great economic times during his White House tenure, has become the voice of wisdom to many. Times, indeed, change.
