It's obvious that it's June:

For all those Kennedy/Cuomo watchers, many of the activities connected with the Kerry Kennedy-Andrew Cuomo wedding will take place at the Sheraton Carlton Hotel. Mother of the bride Ethel Kennedy is not releasing any information about the members of the bridal party, but one inside source said it would consist of an unbelievable 41 people at tomorrow's nuptials in St. Matthew's Cathedral here.

There will also be a post-wedding brunch there Sunday in the Crystal Ballroom for about 100 people, among them film director Francis Ford Coppola, New York Mayor David Dinkins and disgraced hotel queen Leona Helmsley ...

Another celebrity-studded wedding tomorrow is that of Piper Dellums, the 24-year-old daughter of Rep. Ron Dellums and his lawyer wife, Roscoe Dellums, to Brian Ross, a recent New York University graduate. The interfaith ceremony at the Navy Chapel near American University, to be officiated by Rabbi Reeves Brenner and the Rev. Jesse Jackson, is expected to draw such celebrities as Marla Gibbs, Danny Glover, Stevie Wonder, Lou Gossett, Tyne Daly, Harry Belafonte and Bill Cosby ...

"I couldn't care less -- I have no feelings about it," she explained as she told reporters that she was "really proud" of the way everybody, from Wellesley students and Boston residents to their mayor and governor, had welcomed Raisa Gorbachev in Boston last week. "The only problem," the First Lady joked, "was she wanted to thank each one personally!" She told the young readers, "You champions are especially special because you represent over 800 Washington area children who like to do what I really love to do -- to read books." Top winner, for having read 435 books during the March of Dimes campaign, was Nicholas Daly, 9, of the Beltsville Academic Center. He and the 24 other winners read more than 6,000 books, raising $1,200 and bringing the total Reading Champions income to more than $14,000. The March of Dimes also gave a $5,000 Barbara Bush Commemorative Grant to the Family Place for its Special Babies Program ...

Short of that, she's received a number of significant awards and yesterday received an honorary doctor of music degree from Harvard University.
