Between the Lines
Some letters float into our physical or electronic in
boxes soft as a feather. Others hit us hard. We winced when we

of U.S. 1’s January 1 issue:
Trentonian. What a horrible cover photo; after seeing THAT I did not
bother to find out about the related story."
will choose our words more carefully. The writer, Diana Conway of
the Princeton University Press, was apparently objecting to our casual
portrayal of a handgun on the cover, pointed in the direction of —
but not exactly at — the photographer and hence the reader.
We are glad that the image caught this reader’s attention, but it
hurts to think that she never read the article. In fact, the cover
subject’s technology and business plan is based on the hope that guns
can be made safer and smarter so that only their rightful owners can
fire them. Given that attempts to ban handguns have met with total
failure, this approach seems worth considering. Any other reactions?
I AM DEEPLY GRATEFUL to you and your staff for publishing such a
and uplifting story ("Helping Hands: Advocating for Children and
Offering Jobs to Adults with Autism," December 18). Your newspaper
is not only a remarkable weekly business newspaper but also a guide
to area activities, a human resources directory, and a guide to the
area’s service agencies, as well as opportunities for volunteerism.

Peter Dawson of Leigh Photo and Imaging and Constance Martin of the
Center for Health Care Strategies are two prime examples of the
of people residing throughout the Princeton area. They exemplify the
spirit of giving back throughout the year, rather than only through
the holiday season. Volunteerism is the cornerstone of charitable
organizations such as the Eden Institute. Without individuals like
Peter Dawson helping to support Eden’s day to day operations and our
fundraising efforts, I can tell you without equivocation we would
not exist today.
Throughout the Princeton area, there are tens of thousands of
who benefit from not-for-profit organizations. Companies are able
to entice leaders in their industry to relocate to this area because
of the breadth and depth of such services as well as all of the other
quality of life indicators: great schools, arts and cultural
and recruiting opportunities, to name a few. Your newspaper highlights
those issues that make for a quality of life in the Princeton area.
That is why it is eagerly anticipated every week throughout the
