In the nation's capital, where standard wisdom rumbles down every marble corridor and pours out over every broadcast network, C. Boyden Gray listens to a different beat.

Administration officials publicly rebuked C. Boyden Gray Monday after the White House lawyer openly questioned the Contra-aid deal between President Bush and congressional leaders.

"This was not Boyden's finest hour," said one senior White House aide. "Hopefully, we're back on the right track."

It is almost as though Clayland Boyden Gray, the lanky lawyer and an heir to the R. J. Reynolds tobacco fortune, had been groomed all his life to be counsel to the President of the United States. He grew up in a white-columned presidential mansion on the campus of the University of North Carolina. His father, Gordon Gray, was not only president of the university but a golfing buddy of Sen. Prescott Bush, the father of the 41st President.

Re "Suit targets consumer watchdog," Business, June 23 I found it amusing to read that C. Boyden Gray, an attorney in a suit challenging the constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, complains about how unfair and wrong it is that "if you're a poor beleaguered financial institution … and you are set upon by this bureau, you have no access to the democratic system … to appeal what's happened.
