Americans got their first glimpse of Stuttering John at a press conference in 1992 when Gennifer Flowers revealed she had sexual relations with then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton.

Poster boys
The members of local band Leo's Invention are on the move. Running around ASU's campus, they have an especially important task if they want to get noticed: fliering.
