Mary and Bob (7/16/13)

The Lark of Duluth crashed on Lake Superior today. The pilot escaped but it’s a setback for people who spent five years working on the project.

Somehow, that story got us talking about Howard Hughes, the industrialist and famed aviator, and had us wondering if there are any industrialists left in the United States doing particularly great things in as many different fields as Hughes explored.

We couldn’t come up with any on today’s news conversation with Mary Lucia on The Current.
