Speaking of talk radio and little weasels...

Buddy Cianci's in the news again down here in Rhode Island. ( Everybody's ) Buddy has been in prison for the past five years. He's going to be released this month and the buzz in Providence is that he's going to be working for WPRO as a radio talk show host. I'd call in, but I can't afford the $500 he'll probably charge for me to get on the air.

Buddy's getting a radio gig? Gee, back back where I come from in Waterbury, we had our share of weasels, moles, rats and dirty mayors but we never set them up like that when they got out of the joint. They generally just got a backyard party, with ziti, sausage and peppers, stuff like that.

But a radio gig? You guys in RI sure think of everything.

I think there's an FCC rule that says every AM radio station in a medium sized to major market ( Providence, Hartford, etc. ) must have at least one guy named " Buddy " on the talk show host roster.

Thanks for the comment, Jennifer.
