Things ain’t like they used to be, told us at Can­tor Fitzger­ald’s Char­ity Day, where he be­moaned a lack of good role mod­els for kids.

“When we were kids, ev­ery­where you looked there were good role mod­els. Now it’s very hard to find,” said Danza, by way of ex­plain­ing why he was there in sup­port of the Po­lice Ath­letic League.

“There’s 500 TV shows on the air – you show me one that tells a kid to play by the rules. The New York Times two weeks ago ran two ar­ti­cles about rap artists, both of them, you don’t want your kids watch­ing this. One of them is on the lam for mur­der! But his tape went vi­ral. So this is what we’re telling the kids is good.” Danza told us he’s work­ing on a PAL act­ing pro­gram. “When you teach a kid how to act you teach a kid how to act,” he quipped.
