It's That Special Time of the Year...

...When the students come back to town.

You know it from the congested roadways and pile-ups, the once-dead-suddenly-hopping bar zone o' town, the busy book stores with tents out front...  You just know it.

And if you've been out of school for anywhere from 1-50 years and you live near a dread it.

But still...
