Sue Slocum doesn't care whether you cast your vote today for Barack Obama or Hillary Rodham Clinton. As long as their supporters continue to wear their passion on their sleeves - and everywhere else. There's money in politics, as if we didn't know. Since February, Slocum has been selling partisan merchandise in her Doylestown shop, Michelle's Hallmark. "People wanted to express themselves and I didn't want an election season to go by without having these items in my store," said the 40ish Slocum.

In possibly the first breakthrough in the search for the killer of a Rowan University student, investigators have identified the distinctive sweatshirt the suspect was seen wearing moments before the attack. The man being sought made a purchase at a convenience store just off the Glassboro campus shortly before Donald Farrell, 19, of Boonton Township in Morris County, was punched and kicked in a swift attack last Saturday night. Farrell died Sunday from a blow to the neck. Investigators have been trying to identify the man caught on the convenience store's surveillance video.

High fashion is steeped in deep chocolates, maroons and navy blues right now. Yet the trendsetters - the kids walking the street - are rockin' all things loud and brash. Bright splashes of color are everywhere: polka-dot galoshes; multihued plastic Crocs; gaudy hoodies; retro Adidas; black nail polish; mesh T's that make toned bods appear covered in tattoos. People even want replicas of the red glasses actress America Ferrera dons in ABC's Thursday-night hit, Ugly Betty. Before you know it, plastic bracelets a la Madonna and jelly sandals will be back.

At first glance, the harvest-orange hoodie hanging high in the right-hand corner of the Reebok Concept Store looks like a new Sean Jean jawn. But upon closer inspection, the "S" is the first letter in "Super. " And what could be mistaken for a cursive "J" is actually an "F," the first letter of the word "Five. " Despite the similarities to the clothing line designed by rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, the hoodie is part of Super Five, a collaboration between Reebok and Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.

AFTER days of moping around after the Eagles Super Bowl loss, I realized how proud I am to be living in Philadelphia, and be an Eagles fan. So what did I do? I put on my NFC Championship shirt ($19.99), pulled over my warm Green Eagles hoodie ($39.99), walked out the door to my car and noticed the dry, crusty salt on my mirrored Eagles license plate ($29.99). I wiped it off to a shine with my sleeve, stood up, stuck out my chest, got in my car and went to work in the City of the Philadelphia Eagles.

With his heart in Atlanta and his body in a red Falcons hoodie in Collegeville, P.J. Yaskowski is no feathered friend to Eagles fans, who squawk at his allegiance. "I went to the pet store the other night, and this lady was standing there with a little kitten in her arms," said Yaskowski. "She looks at me and goes, 'Falcons fan. Get out of here.' " Lucky for him, the woman wasn't carrying a pit bull. As the two teams prepare to battle Sunday for a spot in the Super Bowl, it may be a bird-brained idea to wear Falcons colors in Eagles country, Yaskowski and fellow Atlanta fans have found out this week.
