That's Mrs. DealBook, To You

We interrupt our sporadically occurring wedding ratings game feature, Mergers and Acquisitions (wherein we callously and unjustifiably assign a random "market value" to complete strangers by virtue of the fact that they work work in the finance industry), to bring you some joyous espousal news about one of yours and our faves: Mr. Andrew Ross DealBook has been made an honest man! Yes, last Saturday, Ross Sorkin was married to Pilar Jenny Queen at the Angel Orensanz Foundation for the Arts in New York, and somehow the announcement made it into the Times' Weddings and Celebrations section.
The bride, 26, is a Northwestern graduate and agent at Inkwell Management, a literary agency in New York. The bridegroom, 30, is a Cornell grad and is currently employed as the chief mergers and acquisitions reporter for the New York Times and edits DealBook, an online financial news report on the Times' website. You might recognize him from some of his more memorable hits, such as "When a Bank Works Both Sides", "Colluding or Not, Private Equity Firms Are Shaken" and "Hostility by Any Other Name Smells Just as Hostile".
We wish the couple much happiness. Of course, we want to know how all of this is going to affect DB and you. Is DealBook going to go soft, opining for days on why Daimler and Chrysler should try and work it out and going into awkward detail about Murdoch's Kiss? Or will it make our private equity hater's hate all the more stronger, demanding 1. taxing carried interest as income and 2. for you to get off my damn back because I've been working all day and the last thing I need is to come home to is your bitching! Only time will tell.

Etsy Clearly Under The Impression That It Has Earned The Right To Start Acting Like Etsy Again

Buying a platform that sells new and used music equipment for $275 million is the kind of thing we used to be able to mock Etsy for...but they've ruined that for us.
