Megdalen!

Mr. Hopkins in car crash on I-93.

Say what you will about the slightly crazy Einstein-lookin' guy, but I always liked him. Bummer.

psst - because my sister still lives there & sent me the news article.

Acc. to the L'Derry Scuttlebutt Society, Trinity H.S. is saying he's now in stable condition, but not out of the woods yet - in a coma, but responding to his wife's voice.

Hopkins is the shit, I loved having him as a teacher. Who else could tell you stories about being a pickpocket in Brooklyn as a kid (a conversation which I remember digressed into him drawing out the dimensions of old Yankee stadium on the board) to the fact that his lovely wife Mary who worked at B. Dalton used to be a civil rights militant in the 50's & 60's & marched with MLK? You just can't beat that kind of education, dammit.
