Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding: Who Cares?


It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood when Chelsea Clinton and her multi-million dollar wedding are the leading news headlines.

Estimates for the cost of the wedding range from $3 to $5 million.  Oprah, Streisand, and Ted Turner will be there, along with 400 of Chelsea’s closest friends. The FAA has issued a temporary no-fly zone around the Rhinebeck, New York area where the wedding will be held, stating “VIP movement” as the reason.  The bride’s gown will be either a Vera Wang or an Oscar de la Renta, a Clinton family favorite.

And that’s more than I want to know.  I imagine that many folks find the details of this over-the-top, fairytale wedding an escape from the worries of their everyday lives.  I don’t.  I get hung up on the burgeoning ranks of the unemployed, people without health insurance, the death toll in Afghanistan, all of which get in the way of my delighting in Chelsea’s oh-so-special day.

    Agreed!! People like to look and live vicariously. That’s how the crooked Kennedys got such a rep.

    Have a good one.

    Who cares about no fly zone. They closed the Kingston – Rhinebeck bridge. If you needed to cross you had to go all the way to Poughkeepsie. Oh just let them eat cake and watch Oprah that’s how this set sees the “little people” This state is in deep trouble and we could afford the burden of this ?
