NIGHT MISSION: Firefighters from all over the region had their hands full early Friday morning as a blaze destroyed a building housing two restaurants at 354 Nassau Street. Also on the scene were members of the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad, including Deputy Chief Greg Paulson (shown here) and Mike Bonotto, who took the picture. No injuries were reported; the cause has not yet been determined. It was the first three-alarm fire in Princeton since the 2008 blaze on College Road.
Council member David Goldfarb reported at last Tuesdays Borough Council meeting that most of the debt owed to the Borough by the Township has been resolved.

The website message from Sultan Wok, one of two eating places on the northern end of Nassau Street that burned down in a three-alarm fire last week, promised an update for our valued customers, while the Thai restaurant, Tom Yum Gong, expressed similar sentiments on its website, thanking family and patrons, and saying that it would re-open in the future.
Hosting a live, one-hour town hall telephone meeting on health care reform with constituents last week, Congressman Rush Holt (D-12) began by saying, This is a perennial topic; it goes back to Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Bill Clinton. Its been 15 years since Congress discussed health care reform, and the need has become more serious. Ive heard many stories about Americans who were denied care or cant afford medical care in the past few months.

There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone circling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.
“The lark rises unattended
And sings her diary over;
The tortoise gives evidence
The leopard, that wild-grass stalker,
Waits for his herd
Everybody wants that song,
All their owners want is the next meal.”
