As we lurch headfirst into another workweek showered with status updates, Google alerts, and tweet after tweet all whizzing by us at lightning speed, take pause this Monday morning to look back on the triumphs of a different era, thanks to King Rose Archives who published this video of the first passenger flight from Detroit to Cleveland in 1928. It's quite remarkable stuff, and a gentle reminder of how far we've truly come.
