    Frank Bruni grew up in a big, loud Italian family in White Plains, New York, where meals were epic, outsize affairs. At those meals, he demonstrated one of his foremost qualifications for his future career: an epic, outsize love of food.

When Bruni was named the restaurant critic for The New York Times in 2004, he knew enough to be nervous.

    Brett Kavanaugh’s wife, Ashley, told Martha MacCallum of Fox News: “I know Brett. I’ve known him for 17 years.”But that’s hardly his whole life. And that’s hardly the whole Brett.
