So if she legally changes her last name, she'll be Michelle Pell?  Oh dear.

"Politico Beau"?? Who writes this shiat?

And with a name like "Clay Pell" and a job in Washington, a good journalist might, y'know, consider mentioning any family connections to Claiborne Pell if such a connection is present.

Sports why?

Crewmannumber6: Sports why?


Because figure skating is a sport, and she's a former figure skater.  It would be no different than a story about a former football player getting married.

TFA says Brian Boitano was at the wedding? That's special.

Why not put it on the Politics tab then, since the husband is involved in politics?

A senator when I was a kid. He was in office for centuries and you'd hear his name in the news all the time.

Maybe you've heard of "Pell grants"?

What's the opposite of "makes the boring story more interesting"?

That was my first thought on reading this. (So I googled a little, and yes, he's the grandson.)

I wonder how the blue bloods feel about mixing a little soy sauce into their white rice gene pool?

Either way there should be zero fark given.

It's just so much more work. Made especially ironic by the fact I had to google for that gif ;)

\Mostly, I was supplying an obligatory post.

My dentist still has a poster of her with her pearly whites in one of his rooms.
 
2013-01-20 12:45:46 PM
she still does sports?

Granted, it was an E! item, but COULD it have been more kitschy and patronizing? "We bet this is her favorite medal of all."

On another note, I like seeing high-profile interracial marriages. It might be a sign that we're moving past prejudice (at least prejudice based on skin color.)

So long as its a white guy and Asian female. Seriously those are commonly accepted now

Ah, that would explain how a Coast Guard Lieutenant has the job "director for strategic planning on the national security staff at the White House". I was wondering how in the hell and O-3 rated that position.

Well, if he started when she was 20, and she's 40 now, as an asian girl she still looks 20, so it's all good.

About the only interracial that still gets people's panties in a wad is a black man with a white woman, and I don't think that has as much to do with racism as it does with the left over available black woman being utterly unappealing to most non black men

Asian, hispanic, indian(feather or dot) or about anything else where we could gladly take your leftover women off your hands no problem.

Oldiron_79: About the only interracial that still gets people's panties in a wad is a black man with a white woman


Yet I think the other way around (white man, black woman) is still less common, statistically.  Let alone blacks and asians.

And what if If we've been best friends since we were 6 and I've been bugging her since several years after?
You know, I'm just saying... what if
