A tragicomedy is a literary genre blending aspects of both tragic and comic forms. Most often seen in dramatic literature, and not politics. The term can be described by either a tragic play or one which contains enough comic elements, or both.

Today is the deadline in New York if you stil;l need to register to vote during the Novermber 6 Midterm Elections.

However, political realities appear to be bringing about the turnout in special and primary elections this year, which has been bumped, thanks partly to more young people becoming actively involved in our democratic system.
