Just listened to this mostly excellent piece on AG-nominee Loretta Lynch. It was great right up to the end when for no apparent reason they chose this as the final paragraph:

There's one more thing about Lynch: She's the stepmother of two young adults, including one who plans to move to Washington with her if she's confirmed as attorney general.

That would make her the first mom to serve as the country's highest-ranking law enforcement official.

Am I being overly sensitive? It seemed weirdly unnecessary to throw in there at the end and felt hamfisted.
