Fox’s First (Not Quite) 100 Days: More of the Same?

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

When Bill Murphy announced in 2009 that he would not seek re-election, the talk of his successor as Speaker of the House started immediately, and nearly as instantly, Gordon Fox was the top contender. After seven years as the Majority Leader, the number two-ranked member of the House, it only made sense.  In fact, before Murphy announced he was stepping down, would-be's for the job were already jockeying for the slot in 2011, eyeing Fox as the handpicked heir apparent.

Best Burgers in Rhode Island

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

To choose the best burger is to declare philosophy.  For me, it's about great beef, perfectly cooked rare, which I’ll admit can be risky if you don’t know and trust your ground beef source.  I don’t want too much bread, please no overpowering cheese (if you even want cheese on your burger), maybe some good bacon, possibly a tomato if they’re in season.  And please, no salad on my burger.  Lettuce greens have their place in things but I don’t need a mound of leaves on my beef. 

Here are my picks for top five burgers in the Rhode Island area, plus an honorary pick and an in memoriam, because it was really difficult to choose five, and nearly impossible to put them in order.

Broken Process 3: Who’s In Charge?

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

Maybe we just are dense. Or is no one trying to add up the numbers?

GoLocalProv took its confusion over lobbying data managed and disseminated by the Secretary of State's office at its public information portal at www.sos.ri.gov, to the source.  And we asked why it was so hard to figure out how much any one lobbyist, or lobbying firm, really made.

Chris Barnett, communications director for Secretary A. Ralph Mollis, admitted that there are occasions on the site where even he needed five times looking at reports to figure out the distinction between executive and legislative lobbying figures, "until I had internalized the logic," he said.

National Convention Might Leave Providence due to Westin Boycott

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

After the Westin's managing Procaccianti Group imposed a 20 percent wage cut, unilaterallly quadrupled employee health insurance costs, threatened to replace workers with subcontracted labor like the controversial Hyatt decision in Boston, fired three workers in retaliation for joining a picket line (they were later reinstated four months later - after the NLRB became involved), and broke off contract talks with the hotel workers, you can't blame the hotel workers for calling a boycott of the Westin Hotel.

Now, a major national conference - Netroots Nation  - is threatening to bypass Providence for its 2011 convention because of the Westin Boycott.
