It is .4 miles from the train station to my home. The sidewalks aren’t the smooth and clean ones of the Flatiron District. They’re broken with concrete jutting up out of the ground. On the day I brought the Predator home, it had just rained, and while the streets were dry, puddles of brown, stagnant awful lay in a pedestrian’s path at every intersection. I lifted and dodged and hurried home. The shipping weight of the box is 70 pounds, and between the Pelican case, power supplies, and 19 pound laptop I was sure I was dragging all 70 pounds behind me.
So we’re left wondering. Indeed, Wray is not as controversial as Trump’s pick could have been. He’s not a stranger to controversy, either. After serving as assistant attorney general overseeing the criminal division under George W. Bush, Wray practiced law with the Washington firm King & Spalding. He also served as Christie’s lawyer when the former New Jersey governor faced backlash over closing a lane on the George Washington Bridge in an alleged revenge plot to get back at a Democrat mayor. Two of Christie’s former aides ended up going to jail in the scandal, though Christie was never charged. The Senate still needs to confirm Wray, so it remains unclear if the lawyer will get the job.
