148

Usually I can come up with some sort of story to go with this number every week, but 148 is more resistant to this kind of treatment: at best, I can point you toward Montana's medical-marijuana initiative, which appeared on the Big Sky State's ballot last November as I-148 and which passed nearly two to one.

Of course, what you should be reading is Carnival of the Vanities #148, compiled by New World Man and sponsored by the Supreme Court of the United States, a week's worth of good bloggage in a handy package.

The Atlantic is 148 years old this year.

I like that. (Though I probably never think of that because of Harper's, which turns 155 [I think] this year; Number Two is always forgotten.)

Wow Matt -- how old is the Pacific?
