In the 21st century, communication is still not perfect. Our DSL access was out of whack last month, and it worked only spasmodically in the days before and after Memorial Day. So if you sent us an E-mail recently, we may not have received it. The problem seems fixed, but if you doubt your message got through, send it again.
Our general address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are telling us about an event, or sending a photograph for an event, please notify email@example.com. Business meeting notices should go to firstname.lastname@example.org. Classified ads go to email@example.com, and display ad questions or the actual ads get sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also welcome faxes: 609-452-0033.
In our May 24 issue Richard K. Rein commented on the dismay and discomfort felt by a few residents when they discovered that an issue of our sister newspaper, the West Windsor-Plainsboro News, contained an insert from a church circulating the Gospel of John from the Bible.
Last week U.S. 1 took some heat for its Princeton University cover, which included a murky photograph of an “event” at the former rite of winter passage, the “Nude Olympics.” We received a total of three E-mails objecting to the photograph (one is printed below). And that brings up a comparison that underscores the point of Rein’s column: The Bible inserted in 12,000 copies of the News generated six complaints; some nudity in 19,000 copies of U.S. 1 generated three complaints. When it comes to controversy, the Bible is a surprising flash point.
