The Daily Numbers for Wednesday, Nov. 16

2 different protests set today, 1 on the Swarthmore College campus; 1 on the Main Line.

3 county high school marching bands that won big time at the statewide Cavalcade of Bands.

6-pack, what you can now buy at your local beer distributor. That’s in addition to a 12-pack or a case. The change was signed into law by Gov. Tom Wolf.
