Report: Invitations sent for Rhee wedding

By Washington Post editors

D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee and Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson will get married in a ceremony in California on Sept. 4.

That's according to a report in The Sacramento Bee. The paper reports Tuesday that invitations say that the wedding will begin at 4 p.m. at St. John's Lutheran Church in Sacramento. A party afterward is at the estate of developer and longtime Johnson supporter Angelo K. Tsakopoulos. The paper says the invitations came in a box wrapped with a silver bow. The package includes directions to the Tsakopoulos estate, though the developer's name is misspelled.

According to California law there is no cap on the value of wedding gifts given to politicians, but Johnson will have to report any gift valued at more than $50.

Mmmmm....kind of ironic that the head of the DC School System has a typo in her wedding invitation!

What is this really about? Is this for real or a media stunt? This woman doesn't even appear to like blacks yet alone she is marrying one...very questionable in my opinion. Some racists do things to make it appear that they aren't by any means necessary. Oh Well.

Tsk, tsk, Kevin & Michelle.

Having your wedding paid for by a Sacramento businessman (developer) with an unabashed personal political agenda. What a wonderful example of ethics and adult personal responsibility to set for the children - yours, DC's, Sacramento's, and otherwise.

And you sent out misspelled invitations? Oh, Rhee-rhee... Is it that you can't spell - or make the effort to learn the correct spelling - or that you don't bother to check your work before you submit it? Either way, you don't merit a very high teacher proficiency rating. Better add yourself to the list of ineffective DCPS employees slated for dismissal.

What the bloody hell are you talking about? You're just labeling her a racist because the teachers that she fired were predominantly black. I don't think skin color mattered in the firings but I'm sure that they were fired because they sucked at teaching.

The only item newsworthy here is that the developer's name was misspelled. Rhee should be FIRED for that! What a bone head!

Other than that, who really gives a rat's arse?

Come on Brother, you definitely could have pulled a more attractive woman than Rhee!

pfaber99: You lose your bet. You are completely wrong.

But if I were a DCPS teacher, I'd be able to communicate that a verb, used as an adjective - even in a slang usage - is correctly expressed in the past tense. And I'd be disappointed in - although not "pissED" at - a colleague who didn't know that. So I hope, for the students' sake, that you're not a DCPS teacher.
