RI We've lived in Rhode Island for almost a year now. Here are a couple of observations:
  • Every winter is colder than the last, and the locals always claim its out of the ordinary.
  • Every store in Rhode Island claims its "The Best in Rhode Island." There's no truth in advertising here.
  • The local news stations keep on advertising "News Chopper 12" like the helicopter was invented yesterday, as well as "Pin-Point Doppler Radar" which, of course, is the most accurate meteorological tool in Southern Rhode Island.
  • Providence, the main hub of civilization in RI, has some of the highest parking meters rates in the country. I used to think that only NY and Tokyo had parking this expensive, but apparently Providence wants to play with the big boys.
  • People in Rhode Island don't know how to drive at all. Its extremely common for people to make a left turn at an intersection like they have a protected turn even when they don't and there's on-coming traffic.
  • Oh yeah, the last mayor of Providence is now in jail.

Well, I guess all of that adds to the quaintness to the smallest state in the Union. However, then I saw Aces Full of Links' article on proposed legislation to make it illegal o “speak, utter, or print” statements in support of anarchy or government overthrow.

Well, The Family Guy, an Rhode Island native, would not stand for this kind of abuse, and neither are we. As soon as we have enough money, we're moving right back to California.

I guess Governor Don Carcieri wanted to make it up to Rhode Island after beating-up on local Native Americans.
