• Today in techies: Elon Musk’s SpaceX plans to avenge its earlier, more flaccid rocket by landing one on a drone ship, and Martin Shkreli spoils a blind date’s appetite when he orders a $120 cup of tea.

• A private art museum in San Francisco is being investigated as a possible tax shelter for its plutocrat founder, not far off from the venture philanthropy artscapades Rhonda Liebermann chronicled in Baffler no. 24.
