Laurie Anderson - calling from the Philharmonie de Paris, scoping it out for a show - is balancing many things. That balancing act will be on display in her Language of the Future show at Princeton's McCarter Theatre on Friday evening. Everything this pioneering performance artist/electronic music composer does is about the next thing, something in the future. "I don't think I'll ever have a message, or a philosophy," Anderson said. "I don't want to telegraph anything coded. " Her debut directorial full-length film, Heart of a Dog , commissioned by the Franco-German TV network Arte, was supposed to be about a philosophy of life - "until I told them that I didn't have one, repeatedly," she said, laughing.

For the last year now, state Rep. Sam Rohrer, a Berks County Republican, has been investigating the state's ACCESS program, which enables school districts to be reimbursed through Medicaid for services to special-education and emotionally troubled students. Some schools run the program through on-site health clinics; some of those are funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. How these facts became a conspiracy is anyone's guess. But sure enough, during a hearing in Harrisburg last Tuesday, a health-care attorney told Mr. Rohrer's panel that the ACCESS program and the health clinics are really part of a covert scheme to create a national health-care system, paid for by the Princeton-based Johnson foundation.

Because just about every other anchor in the closing 1,600-meter leg of the Penn Relays Distance Medley Championship of America race was within spitting distance of him. From the time he took the baton until they all headed around the last turn, they were virtually together, 13 strong if you're keeping score.
