Journalist Couples Stung By WASPs

Every week, Intern Alexis studies the Times' Weddings and Celebrations section so she can tell us who's winning the game of life. Usually, it's the rich white people who come from money! Imagine.

There was a bumper crop of journalistic nups in this week's Weddings section, from Style.com's Nicole Phelps to Radar's Peter Hyman (wonder if Margo was invited?). But our winners, as usual, were horsey-faced kids with multiple degrees from different Ivies whose ancestors occupied the Oval Office or somewhere thereabouts.
