Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Today's lesson

From Reuters-

ROME (Reuters) - An Italian teacher has been suspended from school because of her extra-curricular activities as a porn star, local authorities announced Thursday.

The out-of-hours behavior of Anna Ciriani, who calls herself "Madameweb" in hard-core videos on the Internet and at erotic shows, was "not compatible with educational activity," the head of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia education authority said.

Ciriani, dubbed the "porno-prof" by Italy's main newspapers, said she never let her hobby get in the way of her teaching.

"My behavior at school has always been professional and irreproachable," she was quoted as saying by the AGI agency.

"I am a normal woman, with my family and my work as a teacher. I am (also) looking for transgression and sex."

Five years ago Ciriani was transferred from her post as teacher of Italian literature in a secondary school in the north-eastern town of Pordenone after students covered the toilets with nude photos of her downloaded from the Internet.

Since then she has been giving evening classes to foreign adult students in a nearby town.
I agree with the education official, there is nothing compatible with Ciriani's other line of work and her job as a teacher. Someone with common sense(which Ciriani appears to lack) would know for a teacher to be effective, they have to be respected by students. The actions of the students in Pordernone show that Ms. Ciriani has trashed herself in that regard.

I wonder what Ms. Ciriani was teaching in those evening classes. Feel free to make your own snarky comments.

Last but not least, Reuters named the teacher. I've long noted how the news service deletes the name of transgressors from their news stories. Has Reuters changed their policy or was this just a one shot affair?
