I read the NYT weddings announcement section every week.  As a romantic type, I find it sweet.  But, but, but, as a scientist, I expect my profession to be represented.  Science/math geeks fall in love just like everybody else.  And the NYT weddings section doesn’t seem to believe this.  Don’t believe me?  Here are the data for this week’s announcements.  Mostly it’s Wall Street billionaire wannabes and lawyers.  Then there is the we’re-journalists-so-journalists-will-get-overrepresented phenomenon.  But science/math types?  A big fat bagel.  Tsk, tsk.
