But to think additional punishment is being inflicted by a bunch of people who are shamelessly telling whoppers with straight faces every time their lips move would be a pity, even for a man who deserves little.


HEAD TO THE BUCKET

P+J want to remind you that the 12th Annual Pawtucket Arts Festival is underway. Most of the events are free and, as usual, there's a wide variety to choose from: the popular Chinese Dragon Boat races (this Saturday and Sunday), music from the Rhode Island Philharmonic and the Boston Pops (with special guest Kenny Loggins), a two-day Stone Soup Folk Festival, the Labor and Ethnic Heritage Festival, a film festival, and visits to artists' studios. There's a lot going on.

Friday, August 27, is the Taste of Pawtucket event, where dozens of great Pawtucket restaurants commandeer a few blocks of Roosevelt Avenue. Of special note is a ceremony at 4 pm at the corner of Roosevelt and Exchange streets, where the Exchange Street bridge will be renamed the Morris Nathanson Bridge in honor of the great artist and designer who (along with his wife Phyllis) has been a key figure in the revitalization of the city. Check out the Pawtucket Arts Festival website at pawtucketartsfestival.org.
