On the wedding beat

Usually, because of our curmudgeonly nature, we ignore all mentions of weddings, babies, puppies, sailboats, and Magic Shell ice-cream topping.

For example: back when Joe Holmgren (’93) tied the knot, we spoke not a word. And last summer, when Phil Hawkins (’94) sallied through a park in Dallas on a Saturday afternoon, slurping a single scoop of chocolate in a sugar cone with butterscotch topping, you didn’t read about it here.

But this New York Times notice, announcing that Mary Fan (’97) has married her Yale Law paramour, is just too good to pass up. It’s got Jurassic Park, dangerous New Haven restaurants, Birkenstocks, a grapefruit farm, Marvin Gaye, and a mid-century history interlude.

Go take a look at the article, and then send Mary a note of congratulations for her other big news–an appointment to American University as an assistant professor in the American University Washington College of Law.
