Corporate Marriage

Between Disney and DreamWorks Animation! (In a manner of speaking.)

"Star Wars" creator George Lucas is engaged is engaged to 43-year-old investment firm president Mellody Hobson. ... Hobson serves as chairwoman of DreamWorks Animation ...

So okay. It's not exactly a corporate merger. More like a personal co-mingling of high-placed execs, and one of them maybe isn't really so high-placed anymore.

More like semi-retired. And really, really rich.

But I think it speaks volumes about who bigwigs associate with and fall in love with: Other bigwigs.

Which goes a long way in explaining why Mr. Lucas has become engaged to Ms. Hobson. It's the natural and right thing to do in this best of all possible worlds.
