She also worked for Mitt Romney when he was governor of Massachusetts on global warming issues, which shows she can communicate effectively with even the most ignorant animals in the jungle.

Good luck, Gina. You'll need it.


'VATILEAKS'

Quite a coincidence that Pope Benny Andajets headed for the hills just after receiving a dossier that reportedly revealed a group of prelates at the Vatican (aka, Hot Sheets-Roma) were facing blackmail for their sexual proclivities — and we don't mean celibacy.

The exposure of these sordid games couldn't have happened to a better bunch of guys than the fast-exiting Pope, the College of Cardinals, and the international circuit of paedo priests.

Sure, this rings of Catholic-bashing. But P&J can't think of any of our local Catholic friends — and they are legion — endorsing the behavior of their entitled clergy.

Perhaps the Vatican could use a visit from the skilled diplomat who just took a jaunt to North Korea: Dennis "The Worm" Rodman. We are sure he would find all the clerics "awesome guys."


TV PARTY

Jorge's proposed television project with Nate Flynn for Rhode Island PBS, Meet Me at the Met, dipped a toe in the water on Monday evening when the generous folks at the station gave the pair an entire evening to promote and raise money for the new show.

As we mentioned last week, the aim of Meet Me is to showcase Rhode Island musicians playing live at the Met Cafe in Pawtucket.

We certainly hope those who viewed the program had as much fun as the people in the studio. Members of the board of directors of the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame answered the phones amid great in-studio performances by Nolan Leite, the 10-year-old guitar prodigy, the Jess Lewis Band, Kevin Williams and the Invisible Orphans, Mark Cutler and Don "DC" Culp, and the ethereal Allysen Callery.

Also nice to have Roomful of Blues leader and guitarist Chris Vachon stop by to say hello and remind folks that it's Roomful's 45th year and the band will be celebrating soon with three nights at the Ocean Mist in Matunuck (P&J will let you know when that's happening).

Thanks to all for making this a fun night and the start of something very special indeed.
