Oprah’s tea party

You get a teabag, and you get a teabag: Oprah appeared at Starbucks shareholders meeting to help announce a tea drink called Oprah Chai that will be sold at Starbucks.

Starbucks has attempted to link celebrities and beverages before but with little success, including Coco Chanel Cocoa, LL Cool J Kool-Aid and Tyler Perry’s Yerba Madea.

Fair’s fair: The FAA has faulted Boeing for not exercising enough quality control over its subcontractors for the 787, which led to battery failures that grounded the Dreamliner and other problems that caused delays.

Boeing said it would address oversight procedures to make sure subcontractors bend over backward at least as far as its own employees and state lawmakers do.
