The big news down here in Rhode Island is that Vincent " Buddy " Cianci is being released from a New Jersey prison next week. He's been serving five years on federal corruption charges. There was a rumor that Buddy might be rehired by WPRO, an am radio station in Providence. He was a drive time talk show host there before he started doing another kind of time in 2002.
Rumors involving Vincent Cianci are like rumors of war; most of them aren't true. Turns out Cianci is not going to be working as a radio talk show host. He's going to be working for a marketing and public relations firm in Boston. The company, by the way, is within walking distance of the Massachusetts state house.
