PRINCETON: John Nash remembered for his genius - and his struggles

Nobel Prize winner John F. Nash Jr. was remembered for a soaring mind that helped him reach the heights of mathematics but also led him to the depths of mental illness that lasted for more than 30 years before he recovered.

Mr. Nash was killed Saturday along with his wife, Alicia, in a car crash on the New Jersey Turnpike as the couple traveled home in a taxi from Newark Liberty International Airport. He was 86, while she was 82.

They had been returning from Norway, where Mr. Nash received that country’s Abel Prize in math that he shared with fellow mathematician Louis Nirenberg.



Judy Collins: Still Going Strong
The legendary singer will share songs from her storied career at New Hope Winery
   SINGER Judy Collins has had quite the storied career. She’s won Grammys, charted more than a dozen hit songs, written a memoir and novel, was a guest on The Muppet Show, and made waves for her “naked” cover sleeve on the 1979 album, Hard Times For Lovers.

   Now 75, Ms. Collins continues to create new music and perform around the country.

   ”I love it, I make a living at it and I feel I’m getting better at it,” she says. “I feel very fortunate to be doing this and be creative on my own time and also continue as I’ve done. I do about 120 shows a year now, and that’s more than I’ve ever done. You’re always trying to be better than you were the year before.”
