So over at LEV's blog there's the exciting recap of the Kevin Johnson event. Here's a bit of it:
Johnson is engaged to Washington, D.C., Public Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee, who played a significant role in the education reform documentary Waiting for Superman. One teen who was waiting to film a video segment on truancy prevention with Johnson had just seen the documentary and was thrilled to learn that Johnson was dating Rhee.
And I'm thinking to myself - this kid is "thrilled" that Johnson is dating Rhee? Hmm, not your typical teenager. Then I read this:
After asking Johnson a couple of questions on video about the importance of staying in school, the teen mentioned Rhee and then jokingly asked for her phone number. Johnson pulled out his cell phone and called Rhee on the spot. He then handed the phone to the excited kid to talk to his new hero. The first words out of his mouth: “You’re my favorite actress!”
Out of the mouths of babes. She's one of mine, too.
