There's an article about color synesthesia today on the AP science wire.
Maybe I misunderstand what synesthesia is; I thought it was about as common as, well, being able to read, but this article suggests otherwise - that it's more like one in 25000 or at best one in 200. The writer makes it sound like people with color synesthesia literally see colors bursting out of the newspaper. For me the colors are distinctly associated, but in my mind - not like hallucinations.
