At campuses across North Texas, student political groups have sprung back to life. Debate-watching parties, door-to-door outings on behalf of local candidates and public political forums are crowding student calendars, fueled largely by the energy of the close presidential contest between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain.
Americans ages 18 to 24 are expected to vote "in significant, if not record numbers," according to a survey released in April by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics. The study reports that 72 percent of college students said that they were "definitely voting," compared with 62 percent for the same time period in 2004. And youth participation in 2004 was up 31 percent from 2000.

The circus is in town, which means coulrophobics won't sleep a wink until Ringling, his brothers and all their clown friends climb into a tiny car and get the heck out of dodge.
For the foolishly rational among you, coulrophobia is the term for an abnormal fear of clowns. And the mere fact that a term like this exists illustrates just how clown-hating has gotten out of hand.
