Life Full Nelson
posted by March 1 at 12:36 PMon
In Half Nelson, the exceedingly dreamy Ryan Gosling plays a junior-high teacher with an unfortunate crack problem. Today Gosling’s fictional charcter was thoroughly one-upped by John Accera, a real-life middle-school principal in Pennsylvania who was not only arrested for possessing and selling meth, but was found naked in his office watching gay pornography with a collection of sex toys nearby at the time of arrest.
Full story here.
(And the school district’s letter to parents is here.)
[Update: I originally misidentified Acerra as 28 years old. He’s actually 50, and “a 28-year educator and principal since 2000.”]
