The Wrath of Kahn

How many more times, Nation's Newspaper of Record?

An article on Sunday about the publication by the New York City Education Department of performance rankings for 18,000 teachers misspelled the surname of a parent at Public School 333 on the Upper West Side who was surprised that some of the teachers whom she considered outstanding had earned poor ratings. She is Vicki Kahn, not Khan.

This is a twist on the Times's usual Kahn problem, but it does suggest the need for a version of the Whom Rule: Whichever way you want to do it, do it the other way.
