The Dalai Lama waves his Princeton University hat after it was presented to him during his appearance at Jadwin Gym.
The Dalai Lama challenged Princeton University students on Tuesday to help forge a more peaceful world in the 21st century.

In a talk and subsequent question-and-answer session, he stressed the "oneness of humanity" despite religious, racial and other differences people have. He urged the audience inside Jadwin Gym to lead "a meaningful life" in which they act with compassion, and said money would not bring "inner peace."

Research and vote for Congress
Victor Murray, Lawrenceville To the editor: There are few political posts more important than that of serving in the US Congress. As representatives ''of the people'', Congress was intended to be filled with people from all walks of life.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS: Weekend benefits will aid Princeton non-profits
Season-sational I recently had a craving for fudge and of course that led to a trip to Robinson's in Skillman at the Montgomery Shopping Center on Route 206. Their chocolate fudge is always terrific, but they had a few seasonal flavors that I hadn't tried before, and they will provide samples. If you like pumpkin, you need to stop whatever you are doing and go there. Now. No, right now, and try the pumpkin fudge. It's as if someone took the best pumpkin pie filling you have ever had and turned it into fudge. Visit them online at www.robinsonschocolates.com, or just go there for a taste. Read more...
