Save Screech's House

Pity poor Dustin Diamond. Not only will he never be known as anything more than that guy who played Screech on "Saved By the Bell", he's also about to lose his home. In an effort to keep his house, if not his reputation, he's launched a campaign to get back at the shady financier who abandoned him in his time of need and raise enough money to keep a roof over his head by selling t-shirts online.

Even though I've only read his side of the story, I'd have to say he has no case at all. If he's such a moron that he can't even scrounge up a down payment and get a mortgage after being on syndicated television for the better part of two decades, he deserves to be homeless.

I read an AV Club interview with Diamond a couple years ago where he came off sounding reasonably intelligent. Apparently, they can do wonders with editing these days. Either that or this whole thing is a joke/publicity stunt, but for that to be true, Diamond either had to dupe Howard Stern or the two of them are in cahoots. I find both of those scenarios highly implausible.
