Breaking down barriers (illus. by Beto Alvarez) Who needs TV when reality plumbs the outrageous factor so thoroughly? In a scene straight out of — wow, we’re not even sure there’s a TV show that quite equals this, Jerry Springer crossed with “Desperate Housewives,” perhaps? — some tawdry TV script, a Pasadena high school teacher’s wife was so convinced her husband was having an affair with a colleague, she stormed onto campus earlier this week and got into a fistfight with her husband’s alleged lover. The female teacher was mildly injured during the fracas, and the wife, 29-year-old Leta Carruthers was arrested for battery. No students were injured during the altercation, but we can only imagine their thoughts upon witnessing a grown-up brawl in the hall. We’re hoping they didn’t stand around and chant, “Fight! Fight!”

Our favorite line in the news coverage? School board president Tom Selinske calling the fight “an action of passion.” Guy’s got a way with words…
