New York Times’s Thomas Friedman, Father of the Bride

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman spent the weekend celebrating his daughter’s wedding.

“Natalie Harold Friedman, a daughter of Ann B. Friedman and Thomas L. Friedman of Bethesda, Md., is to be married Sunday to Daniel Abraham Winston, the son of Denise S. Winston and Theodore M. Winston of Wakefield, R.I.,” read the wedding announcement in, naturally, The New York Times.

The bride, 24, and groom, 25, met at Williams College. The new Mrs. Winston is an editorial assistant in the elections unit of National Public Radio in Washington. Mr. Winston works for a French public-transportation services company in Silver Spring. We really hope that somebody managed to include a ” the world is flat” joke in a drunken toast.

But the Friedmans weren’t the only family with a New York newspaper connection in the “Weddings and Celebrations” section this weekend.

Hannah Elka Meyers, the daughter of a Wall Street Journal photo critic, married Joseph Abrams, an associate editorial page editor of The New York Post, reported the Times.  Mr. Abrams’s mother has written blog posts for The Weekly Standard and his step-grandfather is “Norman Podhoretz, the author and former editor of Commentary.” Step-grandparents seem like a stretch to us, but we guess it depends who one’s grandmother remarried.

Needless to say, mazel tovs all around. <EM>New York Times</EM>’s Thomas Friedman, Father of the Bride
