A Few Sunday Quick Hits
A handful of items that are blogworthy, but not extensive, have been building up on my desk, so herewith, some quick hit thoughts:
- An objection was made, last week, to my mention of the exceedingly sparse Projo Jobs section that it was a holiday weekend and thus hardly representative. Well today’s Jobs section may (or may not) have a greater number of smaller ads than larger ones, but it’s still pitifully small. I repeat: cut taxes… now… drastically.
- Somebody in a position to hear things has told me to keep my eye on Tiverton-related news in the next few days because something affecting me, as a resident, is soon to be announced. The comment was so vague that I’m not even sure whether it was a warning or a promise. My blind guess (in keeping with a surmise already expressed) is that the school committee is going to file a Caruolo Act lawsuit to recoup the $100,000 that constituted its share of the so-called “compromise” budget.
- The bad news: Rhode Island is one of only 11 states currently in economic recession, and the only one in New England, and (according to a Lynn Arditi article from Friday that I can’t find online) will likely stay there “through the third-quarter of next year” — that’s fall 2009 (at least).
- As more of a reminder than anything: we’re winning the war against terrorism.
