Early Bexar vote easily beats big 2001 race Early voting ended relatively strong Tuesday, with almost 53,000 people casting ballots in advance of Saturday's municipal election. The number exceeds by more than 50 percent the early vote turnout in the 2001 election, which featured a competitive mayor's race between Ed Garza and Tim Bannwolf.

As the countdown continues to the release of "Star Wars Episode Three: Revenge of the Sith," a new study indicates that contrary to the conventional wisdom, a small but significant number of "Star Wars" fans may actually have sex.
Dr. Davis Preedon, who supervised the study for the University of Minnesota, said that while sexually active "Star Wars" fans still represent a tiny minority of the fan base, the fact that any "Star Wars" fans at all have sex may force scientists to reevaluate their theories about this little-understood population.

Shane Losby, 27, a sexually active "Star Wars" fan from Gary, Indiana, says he has tried for years to convince people that he has sex but "it's really tough to get them to look past the whole 'Star Wars' thing."
Dr. Preedon said his next research project is to test the conventional wisdom that "Star Trek" fans do not have sex: "We've just started the preliminary research, but so far that theory seems to be holding up."
Elsewhere, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said that with the U.S. bogged down in Iraq, the only way to contend with the Axis of Evil will be by somehow convincing North Korea to attack Iran.
