louis-philippeThings that have happened on February 24:

— 1803: Marbury v. Madison was decided, instituting the idea of judicial review in American courts.

— 1848: Louis-Philippe, the last king of France (though not its last monarch), abdicated the throne amid that year’s wave of revolutions.

— 1942: A lost weather balloon (or so they tell us!) was misconstrued as an alien attack in Los Angeles.

— 1991: John Charles Daly, most famous as the host of What’s My Line but also the radio journalist who had the first broadcast updates on the Pearl Harbor attack of 1941, died.

— 1996: February 24 was celebrated as Leap Day for the final time in the European Union and the Catholic Church (really!).

— 2014: Nieman Lab holds a happy hour for journalists, technologists, business-side types, and anyone else interested in the future of news.

Yes, it’s the return of our sometimes monthly, occasionally occasional happy hour for Bostonians and near-Bostonians. You should come have a drink with us this Monday, February 24, at 6 p.m. or so. We’re doing it again at The Field, which is in Central Square, roughly 8.2 seconds’ walk from the Central Square T stop and thus easily accessible to anyone with a Charlie Card.

You’ll probably find us in the side room on the left. First five people to come up to me and repeat the magic phrase — “Je suis le prétendant au trône de France” — get a free beer on me.
