Not that England is a role model. The English national team captain was accused of calling another player a "black c—t," and has lost his captaincy.

Sometimes we think there couldn't be worse sportsmen than Lance Armstrong or worse fans than the drunken morons in the stands in the US. But we'd be wrong.


For the past few Wednesday evenings, the inimitable Laurel Casey has been holding forth at the Mile & a Quarter on South Water Street in Providence. These are totally unique shows. There are talented guest performers singing or demonstrating fashion tips as Laurel provides running commentary and the occasional rant. And there is music, of course, from the chanteuse and her able backing musicians. Kirk Feather stopped by a couple of weeks ago to add his alto saxophone to the mix.

We highly recommend this show as long as it lasts. P&J (and probably Laurel herself) have no idea what's going to happen any given week, but the folks who have come down have laughed and cheered and had themselves a good old time. Check this out.

    Rhode Island’s newly-christened Speaker of the House, Rep. Nicholas Mattiello (D-Cranston), makes Phillipe and Jorge think of someone who, if you went mountain climbing with him and if you started to fall, would be sawing with a knife furiously at the safety line connecting you in case you might take him down with you.
