    Hi Bob,

    When you go down to “Journalism Day” at URI, share some thoughts for me:

    1. Nobody believes Journal reporters when they say the 4th Floor doesn’t influence their reporting;

    2. The anti-public sector union vitriol is not only flawed from a factual standpoint, as you point out above, it is a bad business model, as the decline in circulation at the Journal shows.  

    3.  Pose this question for me: whose endorsement is more irrelevant, politically, in Rhode Island, The Republican Party or The Providence Journal?

    Thanks, PC

    “Fiscal disaster” won’t be avoided by getting a “few more tax dollars” from the top income earners. To think otherwise is the epitome of intellectual dishonesty. In fact, Senator Whitehouse knows that taxing the upper income earners (even at 100%) wouldn’t cover the deficit for 1 year.
