Shades of Gray
I've just completed a relatively short obituary of an administrative law judge named John Gray. (It should be in the paper on Thursday, Oct. 25.) He had a fairly high-powered, if not exactly colorful, Washington career -- law school grad who spent 12 years as an FBI agent, then 15 years as a top official of the Federal Trade Commission. Finally, he was a Labor Department administrative law judge for 18 years.
When I was interviewing his wife, I learned a fascinating Only in Obits tidbit: John Gray's mother's maiden name was Black, and his wife's maiden name was White. Black and White, of course, make Gray.
