New #2 at CIA studied physics, used to read erotica at an independent bookstore she co-owned

"The former host of 'Erotica Night' at a Baltimore bookstore will be the first-ever female number two official at the CIA." Perhaps the Daily Beast is trying to make us like Avril Haines less, but the more I read about her serving chicken tostadas to bookworm couples by candlelight on Anne Rice Night, the more she sounds like a Boing Boing reader who has since joined the dark side.
