Old Scratch Nickels – a Providence Horror Story


buddy_AndreI wrote this piece during the second term of the man who is currently running for Mayor. Because I don’t like to badmouth people, I changed the Mayor to a City Councilman.

Unfortunately, some people just don’t know when to stop. The election is Tuesday. I hope that Old Scratch finally gets laid to rest. If not, then we’re all in trouble here.

UPDATE: Buddy Cianci lost by a margin of 10%.

UPDATE: Buddy died last week, January 28, 2016. I’m always sorry when a human being dies. I’m not in favor of the honors he’s receiving: lying in state in city hall and state flags flying at half mast.
Such is the state of politics in Rhode Island.
