For Whom the Wedding Bells Toll

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.

UPDATE: 


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.

    1. ehh says:

      @ehh I was about to let out a cheer for same-sex couple rights, as I thought it was two women. NVM.

  • wow says:

    @wow you are correct.

  • i'm not positive says:

    @i'm not positive but “attended to UC Berkeley”?

    that can’t be right, can it

    1. exactly says:

      @exactly it probably should read “attended to not some mediocre state school.”

  • ... says:

    @... oh oh oh… does he have a daughter too? cos then we could have lez-bo!

    1. hmm says:

      @hmm if she was actually a lesbian, then she could be lez-bo-bo

  • the whole family says:

    @the whole family or liz-bo if her name is elizabeth, or some variation thereof.

    and mrs bollinger, to her child (children) is mom-bo

    and their family pet is a sony ai-bo

    1. wow says:

      @wow he looks exactly like his dad

  • wedding season? says:

    @wedding season? also, a few weeks ago, there was an announcement about dorothy denburg’s daughter getting married.
    and yes, i do read the times wedding announcements on a regular basis.

  • Alum says:

    @Alum “Charles is a law clerk but leaving his job to become a laywer in D.C.”

    Not quite. Most judicial clerkships are temporary jobs which only last a year. Charles Kitcher thus isn’t “leaving his job”; his job is simply coming to an end.

  • wow says:

    @wow did presbo’s son have hs photos taken in front of a dorm door at broadway? thats what i first thought when i saw this picture anyway

    1. ... says:

      @... yes, because broadway is the only place in the world with wood doors.

      1. haha says:

        @haha you have a point but still, in front of a wood door is an odd place to take one’s photo for a NYT WEDDING ANNOUNCEMENT.

  • Racist Homosexual says:

    @Racist Homosexual What’s this, inter-racial marriages? Pshaw, what’s next: inter-GENDER marriages?

  • just noticed says:

    @just noticed http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/13/fashion/weddings/13hitchings.html?ref=weddings

    “Julia Hitchings and Scott Hitch”

    That girl is going to have such a hard time not adding the “ings” to her new name.

    1. Hitched says:

      @Hitched You mean removing the “ings” but yeah, I agree. I’m just shocked that they didn’t go for the obvious headline, “got hitched”!

      1. the wedding section says:

        @the wedding section of the times has not yet become the front page of the new york post.

  • c'mon says:

    @c'mon screw all of you guys all of you guys are mean what the hell just be nice or something i am done with you or something bye.

    1. my apologies says:

      @my apologies to you professor kitcher, but it isn’t our fault that your son looks like he could pass for a lesbian.
