Keep calm and carry on: GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, R-Cayman Islands, in London for the opening of the Summer Olympics, caused a brief stir among his hosts when he questioned whether Britain was prepared to pull off the Summer Games without a hitch.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1909 aviation pioneer Orville Wright flew himself and passenger in a test of the U.S. Army’s first airplane above Fort Myer, Va., for a hour and 12 minutes.

Lt. Frank Lahm, however, almost missed the flight when TSA agents searched his carry-on bag and found a bottle of shampoo that was larger than 3 ounces.
