holding a press conference from her residence the following afternoon to discuss ‘matters of national security.’ As part of the press corp, we knew this could mean literally anything, but we showed up at the appointed time nonetheless. As we milled about, waiting for the presser to begin, we all threw out guesses as to what the Veep would be discussing. Safe to say, looking back now, none of us were even close.

Don’t believe us? Read this excerpt from CNN: Jeff Bezos will be flying to space on the first crewed flight of the rocket ship made by his space company, Blue Origin. The flight is scheduled for July 20th, just 15 days after he is set to resign as CEO of Amazon.
