    Morning person? Or perhaps a night owl?

    Are you a morning person, one of those people that somehow gets up and going every morning without a hitch?

                    Was former President Bill Clinton in Oxford on Thursday to stump for U.S. Rep. Travis Childers or was he just making another stop on a Get Out And Vote campaign nationwide? Or, as Editor Don Whitten writes, wasn’t it both – plus urging the Ole Miss students to get out and help the Democrats protect the gains that group helped them get two years ago? (October 15, 2010, Page 4A)
