Slow news day
It appears that there's not a hell of a lot going on, unless you count the tragic suicide of a lovestruck young man in Davenport and the fact that the guy easily took an officers's gun and squad car before using the cop's gun on himself. That's not exactly political, just sad on many levels.
The bill fixing a technical glitch that was threatening to hold up the move of Casino R.I. passed the Senate and Sen. Jacobs was excited about the first bill with his name on it to pass. The Gov has already said he'd sign it, so goodbye wetlands, hello gamblers, goodbye herons, snakes, fish, and other critters, hello earthmovers, cement trucks, and sprawling parking lots. Goodbye dark, peaceful and mysterious nature, hello bright lights, C-list bands, drunken patrons, and clanging slot machines.
