The Wall Street Journal says it’s in response to allegations FAA supervisors have become too cozy with Southwest officials.

Gun sales are slowing down for the parent company of Smith and Wesson. American Outdoor Brands (AOBC) says sales dropped 33% for the last fiscal year, as consumer demand for firearms slid. American Outdoor Brands is in the process of diversifying its holdings and buying more companies that make camping and hunting gear.

Apple (AAPL) has found its way to Sesame Street. The tech giant is partnering with Sesame Workshop to create programming for Apple’s new streaming service. That will include live action and animated shows, and a new puppet series. But “Sesame Street” itself isn’t part of the deal. That show is under contract to HBO until 2020.
