New York Times Wedding Announcement of the Week

I generally want to stay away from choosing the featured wedding announcement, but I did so this week because I wanted to illustrate an annoying tendency in the NY Times announcements with regards to Los Angeles couples.

Jordan Roter and Guy Stodel

Any references to Hollywood or Los Angeles it seems like on the New York Times is a jab at how superficial and shallow it is. Check out this opening:

THE Hollywood dating pool has never been known for its deep end. After years of paddling in place, a smart and spirited woman from New York might even be tempted to hang up her suit.

Heaven knows there are no "smart, spirited" people from L.A. New York City sends out volunteers to the west coast just so we can have a supply of sophisticated people to grace us shallow, dull folks with their presence.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I suppose there is something romantic about a love connection forged by the presence of Jordana Brewster on the set of the ultra-bloody movie Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. Till death do us part, indeed.

Here are pictures of the couple at a book party thrown by Jordana Brewster in honor of Ms. Roter's book, Girl in Development.
