From a State Collapsing to a Country Rebuilding

I thought it worth taking a moment to note that former RI House minority whip and Congressional candidate John Loughlin left today for a military tour of duty in Iraq, for which he’s come out of retirement to help train Iraqis in the political process.
I had a cup of coffee with Loughlin the other day in Providence, at a table directly next to House Speaker Gordon Fox and GoLocalProv founder Josh Fenton. The juxtaposition of the two pairings emphasized what, exactly, John is escaping for the rest of the year.
He’ll be back in December, though, with plenty of time to regrow his hair before the campaign season begins in earnest!

“at a table directly next to House Speaker Gordon Fox and GoLocalProv founder Josh Fenton”
Seriously??? That’s very funny.
(Godspeed to John Loughlin. Hopefully, thanks to the world wide webover and that telephone thingummy, we will hear from him during his deployment.)

Good Move RI–electing a fraudster to Congress instead of a true class act in John Laughlin
Maybe next time we won’t be so dumb
