This is Not Becoming

A sad story in yesterday's news told the tale of a bride who died in her groom's arms during their first dance.

The Associated Press describes how the "Big Fat Greek Wedding" had captivated the students at the elementary school where the bride taught. Unfortunately, the reporter included a big fat grammar error:
The wedding had became a project at Davie Elementary School, where Sjostrom taught first grade. Fellow teachers provided the wedding gown, the flowers and decorations. One of them, an ordained minister, performed the ceremony. (See the story.)

The wedding had become a project. And now, we must go weep in a corner.
