You really gotta feel for Barrington

And its cognitive dissonance — voting for Republicans on the one hand, while trying to block needed economic development on the other.  Universities help drive the growth of our state — and they’re great, so long as they’re stuffed into the urban core, depleting their

Who’s sexist now?

The inside scoop from an anonymous D.C. tipster: The two men who interrupted Hillary Clinton’s speech in NH on Monday, January 7th with shouts of “Iron my shirt!” were, as many of us have suspected, planted by H-bomb and her staffers. Thanks, Hill, for simultaneously

Scientists and Metaphors Don’t Mix

I was getting all inspired and scared by this article, on the crazy stuff that we’re finding as astronomers peer further and further into deep space. And then the awe was sucked right out of me, as our science guys tried to describe their discoveries

‘Gotcha Capitalism’

  Ian and Anchor Rising are in a debate of sorts about hidden fees, spurred on by Senator Frank Ciccnone’s legislation that’d limit overdraft bank fees to $5. This reminds us of the federal push some time ago — non-partisan, for what that’s worth (by

A challenge to the leather fetishists:

Plowgate, cont’d

The already thoroughly-splattered shit passed through the fan once more last night, at a meeting of the City Council’s finance committee, where everybody was asking: Who was that lazy city employee hanging out on that slushy, muddy knoll? You can check out the footage on

S Prov deaths not murders

It’s a little bit awkward to navigate — it turns out that the three bodies found in a South Providence home this week weren’t the result of foul play. Retrospectively, is this a relief or not? I don’t know. The perpetrator wasn’t a human with
