A couple weeks ago, along with more than $270,000,000 worth of other Americans, I saw the movie It. As is the case with most horror movies I see, I wasnt as scared as I hoped to be. At least, I wasnt especially frightened by the clown Pennywise himself. What did frighten me was the notion that fear itselfwhat Pennywise ultimately representscould kill. I may not scare easily in a movie theater, but I scare extremely easily just about everywhere else. If it really is possible for a person to die of fear, surely I am one of the most likely candidates.

Several days after #HurricaneMaria struck Puerto Rico with devastating force, some relief and supplies are beginning to arrive in the capital of San Juan. However, the Associated Press reports that many on the island are still waiting for help from anyone from the federal or Puerto Rican government. But the scope of the devastation is so broad, and the relief effort so concentrated in San Juan, that many people from outside the capital say they have received little to no help. Puerto Ricos governor says he intends to ask for more than a billion dollars in federal assistance. : Joe Raedle / Getty ; Carlos Giusti / Gerald Herbert / AP

The plan was to open an experimental Center for Prevention, Integration, and Citizenship. Radicalized men and women whod been flagged by local prefectures in France for exhibiting withdrawn behavior were invited to voluntarily enter a program to develop critical minds and appropriate citizenship and republican values, according to its charter. If it went well, the government would open 12 more centersone in each of Frances 13 districts. By training at-risk youths in history, philosophy, literature, and religion, the government hoped to fight terrorism at its root. But ""What Went Wrong With France''s Deradicalization Program?""
