Looks Good Enough

Any scientist would consider himself lucky to even be on the payroll of a lab responsible for an important discovery, and yet here he’d personally made two in one afternoon.
     The first was the result of his search for an economical alternative to FD&C Red No. 3—for use in food, drugs and cosmetics—and wasn’t so remarkable for the way it looked but for the effect it appeared to have on his normal inhibitions. The second occurred the moment he plopped a spoonful  of the stuff into his mouth, and he knew it was going make them all rich.
