TRENTON - Where is Cory Booker? It's a question that has dogged the Newark mayor for much of his tenure, with critics saying Booker spends too much time raising his profile on late-night talk shows in New York and elsewhere to be an effective public servant. On Saturday, that question overshadowed the first Democratic debate before the Aug. 13 primary in the U.S. Senate race in New Jersey. While Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver and U.S. Reps. Rush Holt and Frank Pallone discussed entitlement reform, job growth, and gun control, they mostly wondered why Booker wasn't with them.

Two grandmotherly radicals, a dude wearing a Soviet logo who calls himself "a run-of-the-mill anarchist," and a write-in candidate for governor who's barely old enough to vote. These were among the dozen or so revolutionaries who assembled Sunday for the Socialist Party of New Jersey's biennial convention, a gathering of Garden State residents with grand - if not grandiose - goals for the nation, perhaps the world. "Upheaval is exactly what we need. Our [current] system is corrupt and sends millions of people into poverty," declares party secretary Pat Noble, 20, who last year was elected to the Red Bank Regional School Board.

NEWARK, N.J. - With just one more preseason tuneup remaining before Wednesday's opener against Toronto, Peter Laviolette has a short list of concerns. One is the Flyers' quiet offense, which has netted only 12 goals in six exhibition contests. Another is his team's compete level, as the Flyers slept-walked through two periods last night before picking it up in the third with jobs on the line. "That's what I don't get," Laviolette said. "We are in an evaluation period, a chance for guys to put their cards on the table and I was disappointed in that tonight.
