It’s not bad enough for the poor residents of my home town that they have to deal with the media circus that comes with my beloved Eagles signing a felonious dog killer to the squad? Now, the poor bastards have to watch their mayor personally beg the school commission to — get this — let Tony Danza come teach a tenth grade class.

Yes, Mayor Michael Nutter would like Tony Danza to come teach at Northeast High School for A&E’s new show “Teach.” As the Philly Inquirer explains it:

Danza proposes to co-teach the class with a certified teacher and work on extracurricular activities such as the prom and the school play. Students would opt into his class, district officials said.
The actor is already participating in the district’s new-teacher induction program.

The commission will vote on the issue next week. On the plus side, if they approve this mess, the school district will get a whopping $3,500, plus some facility and personnel costs. On the downside, they’ll have Tony fucking Danza teaching the children … teaching them what? That local morning news shows are terrible?
