A substitute teacher and youth soccer coach was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of possessing child pornography, authorities said. Federal agents and local law enforcement officials arrested George Harcourt Bull, 58, at his Lake Forest condo about 2 p.m. after finding numerous photos of prepubescent boys on his computer, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. An Arizona father in June tipped authorities that his 13-year-old son had been exchanging sexually explicit instant messages and text messages and having Web-cam sessions with someone who used the screen name "joeycal," which was traced to Bull.

Of the 33,378 teachers represented in "Teachers' Absenteeism Troubles L.A. District" (May 9), 20,839, or 62.4%, missed seven to nine days, or less. That's less than one day per month. And 5,364 missed no days. Zero! I've been a public schoolteacher since 1969 (in LAUSD since 1973). This year, I've been absent three days. I love my work, but I've seen everything in the classroom change. Students and teachers are now subjected to the most extraordinary distractions imaginable. An occasional "mental health" day can serve everyone.
