Dear Readers,Just do it. Wake up November 4th, grabyourself a cup of coffee and head on over to any of 
the polls scattered around this ne city of ours. Theyopen at 8:00am so there’s no excuse. Don’t go back
to your room after class and diddle around on theinternet for two hours. Facebook will be there tomor-row. Trust me.
Don’t have anytime between classes? Grab a
leather jacket and be a rebel that period by being
20 minutes late. “Hey Teach, I’m splitsville. Gonna
hit up the polls with my crew, daddio. See ya on
the ipside! Eyyyyy.” Say that verbatim, andyou’ll be in the clear.
But seriously, go for it. Either way, we get anew president. At least pretend you have somesort of say in the process (thanks voter fraud!).See ya!-Dave RothstadtEditor-in-chief Comics!

 bscured by the parked cars and commotionof downtown New Brunswick, a weatheredgreen sign stands near the corner of Somersetand Plum. Slightly bent, with faded white lettering, it remindsthose passing by that this intersection has been designatedMindszenty Square, in honor of the Cardinal of Hungarianheritage responsible for consecrating the church that standsthere today. Along with a plaque commemorating the 1955Hungarian revolution, and a statue of the man himself, thisunlikely monument to Hungarian culture is a tribute toa thrivingHungarianneighborhoodthat oncesurrounded it. NewBrunswick oncecontained anentire quarter of New Jersey’sHungarian population.Today,Hungariansare spreadout throughMiddlesexCounty, butthey keep NewBrunswick afocal point of local Hungarianculture. The people that oncelived here haveleft behind alegacy of their cultural contribution to the city. The HungarianHeritage Center, run by the American Hungarian Foundation, ison Somerset Street within walking distance of Hungarian Meatsand Deli and the Magyar Reformed Church.“Originally, the boundaries of the Hungarianneighborhood probably extended to French Street, Somerset,Bayard, Hamilton and Plum,” says Katalin Pintz a former Highland Park resident who is currently pursuing a thesis onHungarian Studies, “[And] there was a Hungarian restaurantin the area, [too] but it was torn down during the hospitalexpansion.”Though the community has shrunk in size, its historystill echoes the streets. For instance, from March 16th toSeptember 14th the Hungarian Heritage Center held a special,
rst-time exhibition of 
 Hungarian Poster Art Throughout the 20th Century
. Andre Farkas, of Norwalk Connecticut,immigrated to America around the time of the 1956 Revolution.He amassed the collection over his lifetime beginning withhis fascination with colorful sports advertisements as a child.Storing these early mementos in an attic until later in his life,he rediscovered the art form and began regularly attendingauctions to build up his collection. Today his posters represent prominent movements and styles of Hungarian culture through posters for movies, sports, and advertisements. Hanging in thegallery, the vivid colors bring us back to centuries of Hungarianlife, along with the tastes, themes, and attitudesof the people they were meant to communicatewith. These historical relics of Hungarianculture range from postage
stamp-sized
miniatures safely encased in glass displays
to tapestry-esque, oor-to-
ceiling sheets.And while the illustrations draw attention toeach intricate detail, these posters don’t just boastaesthetically pleasing mosaics of color; theHungarian language, whether a movie tagline or a political campaign, is every bit a part of the poster as are the pictures. The beautiful text winds inand around thecharacters, splashingacross subjects,depicting bothinformation and art.
