baby formula shortage 

I haven't paid much attention to the baby formula shortage. Everything I saw was about "supply chain". I just read more about it, and found out it was caused by one of the big manufacturers having Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria, holding private records that the bacteria was found in batches over years, and not having appropriate safety controls in place to prevent it from continuing to become contaminated.

Is capitalism out of touch? No, it's the supply chain that is wrong!

TIL there was a period of roughly 28 years when the Smithsonian Institution insisted that Samuel Pierpont Langley, the SI's secretary from 1887 until his death in 1906, had built the first powered flying machine capable of sustained flight with his Aerodrome. They maintained this from 1914 until 1942, when they finally admitted that they'd lent the Aerodrome to Glenn Curtis in 1914, who had had to substantially modify it to get it to fly properly, and that its initial flight on December 8, 1903 had been a failure.
