We’ve gotten like 1,000 emails this morning (Columbia, you’re quite partial to the Weddings Section!) about the New York Times marriage announcement of PrezBo’s son, who is also named Lee C. Bollinger and looks exactly like him. (Speculates one friend of Bwog, “Obviously PrezBo has really powerful genes.”)

Lee C. Bollinger the younger, or Young Bo, was married on Friday to a one Ms. Jennifer Ellis. Ellis teaches elementary school in Illinois and attended Western Michigan Univeristy and then DePaul University. Her parents have very nice and respectable-sounding jobs, but whatever, on to the bridegroom’s family.

Spawn of Bo is an intellectual property lawyer who attended UC Berkeley, University of Michigan, and Washington Sq.-based archenemy NYU.

And oh look wow, his father is the president of Columbia University! His mother, the elusive Lady Bo (or “Jean Magnano Bollinger”), is an artist.


Philosophy professors Philip and Patricia Kitcher’s son Charles was also married this weekend to fellow Columbia law graduate Sue-Yun Ahn. The wedding was held at the Columbia Club.

Charles is a law clerk but leaving his job to become a laywer in D.C., Sue-Yun Ahn is also a law clerk who’s on the brink of starting to clerk for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
