Happiness is a warm gun

Taking aim at gun ads; Taibbi grills Raimondo; Plus"R"Us
P&J don’t know whether to laugh, groan, or puke at local radio ads aimed at “gun enthusiasts” selling firearms to anyone who doesn’t come in the door drooling, with meth caked around their nose.

Bits and pieces

For what it's worth, Bunky; the best of Blackstone Valley
P&J were thinking about a few things this week and, as a way of sharing them all with you, we’re blatantly going to steal a trick that The Urinal’s Pinky Patinkin and Bill Reynolds use on a regular basis: filling up space with bulleted items in their columns.

The independent man

Another eulogy for Linc; the return of Ut; the Culpo caper
Governor Linc Chafee’s decision not to run for another term upset P&J last week, if only for the fact that he didn’t consult us so his announcement wouldn’t come after our publishing deadline. Selfish bastard.

Paging George Santayana

Syria? Let's not; the dating game; all roads lead to Pawtucket
Professional wiseasses like Phillipe and Jorge don’t ever mean to come across as scolds, but is there anyone in Washington, DC, who knows the famed 1905 quote by the Spanish philosopher George Santayana: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”?

Flawed gene pool

Valicenti blows his own horn; more toll woes; Hollyweird East
There is no more ruthless self-promoter in Vo Dilun than Phillipe and Jorge’s friend and occasional adversary Buddy “Vincent A.” Cianci, who makes his living these days as a talk show host/opinion-shaper/wild man on WPRO and Channel 6. But a challenger appears to be stepping up.

Dime-a-dance-romance

A bridge protest goes too far; not-so-Little League; GOP follies
P&J love the idea of civil disobedience when it’s done thoughtfully and aimed at deserving targets. But pardon us if we think that committing arson on the tolling equipment at the new Sakonnet River Bridge toll station over the implementation of a new 10-cent toll doesn’t quite fit that description.

Deepwater, deep doo-doo

Winning with wind; world-class fragrance; a hollow Victory Day
A few years ago, Phillipe worked on the offshore wind energy mapping survey that evolved into the Deepwater Wind project that figures to make Little Rhody the first place in the nation to have offshore wind power generation.

International intrigue

Not crying wolf; after-the-war stories; journalism notes
Phillipe and Jorge know a bit about US embassies abroad, so when the US government starts shutting down more than 19 of them throughout the Middle East and Africa as they have in recent weeks, be afraid. Be very afraid.

Wein-o-rama

A different kind of 'New York System'; shore report; J.J., Boomer, and Ernie
No, this is not a review of the Cranston eatery of the same name.

Frankie goes to Hollywood. . . er, Rio

The Pope on parade; kudos for Naula; sounds by the sea
P&J have had little good to say about the Catholic Church hierarchy, but Pope Frankie seems to at least have a proper sense of decorum.

Maybe we're not so bad

Parsing the pols; the trouble with tolls; a new film fest
P&J recently encountered a heavy-duty power broker at our local dry cleaners who had an interesting insight.

Good girl gone bad?

Plus, my cousin Zimmy, lucky sevens, and Byrne-ing down the house
Phillipe and Jorge can’t imagine a nicer and more charming young lady than our own General Treasurer Gina Raimondo. But she must choose her company more wisely.

Changing climate at White House?

Weather report; sailing with Sprague; disorder in Family Court

Kafkaesque

Maniacal machinations in Foxboro; facts are stupid things
It was only fitting that when the New England Patriots signed professional God-botherer Tim Tebow on Tuesday, they let go of back-up quarterback Mike Kafka. Tebow’s coming to the Pats was indeed a disorienting metamorphosis moment that old Franz K. and Gregor Samsa would have recognized.

At Whit's end

The 'ProJo' loses a strong voice; a medical emergency; take a stand

Thous shalt not tell a lie?

Untrue confessions; gun control at URI; Wolpaw's 'Best Judgment'

Wedding bells?

Another step toward equality; Big @#!%-ing Papi; musical musings
There is little mystery where your superior correspondents stand on marriage equality. We are for it, as we have been for full equality and rights for Vo Dilanduhs of all sexual orientations for the entire 33 years of this column.
