News notes from around the interweb:
- More slot squatting, Vasu? American Airlines wants to add more Miami – Havana flying.
- How Wilbur Wright’s run in with a future serial killer led to his interest in aviation
The stick belonged to a working-class boy named Oliver Crook Haugh, the neighborhood bully. While we’ll never know whether the blow was intentional or accidental, we do know that Haugh was a psychopath who was likely addicted to the cocaine drops, available over the counter in the late 19th century, he took for his severe toothaches. Years after striking Wilbur Wright, Haugh would become a serial murderer, one who was electrocuted in 1906 for killing at least 16 people, including his own family. So it goes.
Haugh’s blow sent Wilbur’s life spiraling in a new direction.

Thanks Gary , a great article!
Amazing how a bully/murderer played a key role in one of mankind’s greatest inventions.
I filled out the survey for the Hyatt card several months ago. The WOH Visa card is A-OK as is, what Chase and Hyatt really need to do is launch a premium ($450) Hyatt card to compete with the Amex Hilton Aspire. I know Hyatt will never give complimentary Globalist status; but Explorist status, free breakfast, a free night certificate good at any Hyatt Category 1-7 hotel, and 3x points on restaurants and travel, etc (plus, preferably, a.$200 Hyatt annual credit) would more than justify the $450 annual fee.
