The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

27 July 2005


The month I joined the Army, March 1972, Mad magazine published issue #149. (Actually, this is not precisely accurate: the issue is dated March '72, but the Mad publishing schedule back then — every forty-five days, 8 issues per year — was cunningly designed to insure that no issue ever appeared on newsstands during the month printed on its cover.)

Not that you care in 2005, because Carnival of the Vanities #149 is appearing right on time, hosted this week by Pratie Place, and, as always, jam-packed with lots of bloggy goodness. What, you worry?
