Between the Lines

All year long U.S. 1 tracks the comings and goings of Princeton-area

businesses and prints articles about them. The articles may be as

short as one sentence or as long as a 4,000-word cover story. We get

the information from fancy press releases carefully dispatched by

corporate public relations offices or from notes scratched on a

delivery lists by one of our deliverers.

Once a year we summarize those articles in our Progress Edition,

scheduled this year for Wednesday, January 25. For each business

category (communications, computers, finance, etc.) we print

mini-listings of new companies, crosstown moves, companies that

expanded, companies that moved to town, and so on.

Our Progress Edition offers a thumbnail sketch of the Princeton

business community, and it works as a mini-directory, useful to

entrepreneurs who need corporate demographics for their business

plans, or for jobseekers who want to know what companies are

expanding.

To the Editor:

Judicial Opinion

I am deeply concerned about the nomination of Samuel Alito to the US

Supreme Court. I believe he poses a considerable threat to our

fundamental rights and freedoms. He is a staunch opponent of abortion

rights, a stance the majority of US citizens do not share.

When abortions are illegal, women suffer. We suffer unnecessarily from

serious complications that are easily prevented when abortions are

done in safe and clean environments and by competent and caring health

care providers. We must not go back to the days of back alley

abortions.

The Senate hearings are an important opportunity to stop this

disastrous nomination before it’s too late. I call on our senators to

oppose Alito’s nomination, and urge their colleagues who sit on the

judiciary committee to do the same.

Re Intelligent Design

It is time for "Intelligent Design" in Princeton

Most authorities agree that one of the main causes for New Jersey’s

high property taxes is the large number of small municipalities

duplicating services.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in Princeton. We support two

government bureaucracies, two town halls, two police departments, etc.

In my 41 years in Princeton, I have seen consolidation voted down

three times.

Both municipalities would benefit. The borough, which would probably

benefit the most, is usually the culprit.

So much for intelligent design. Happy New Year.
