QUOTE OF THE DAY: Teacher Calls Student a ‘Sinner’ Because His Mask Slipped Off

An anonymous Los Angeles teacher compared a carelessly masked student to a “transgressor” from the hell described by Italian poet Dante Alighieri in his “Divine Comedy.”


“He sits five seats to my left with his nose poking out of his mask. He’s just inches away from the student in front of him,” wrote the teacher, under the pseudonym J.S. Heaney, in an essay published Tuesday by HuffPost. “Rather than concentrating on divine justice and the punishment measured for hell’s many sinners, I’m focused on a sinner right here with me and I transform into Minos seated at the entrance of the second circle of hell.”
