Current, April Tonight I read in the April issue about Steve Brosnihan starting the flashing lights at 8:30 p.m. for the Hasbro kids and it moved me so much that he has done this wonderful thing for sick kids. I think that he and others should try to get people to start this in other state capitals. Thank you, Steve,…

Rhode Island Monthly readers weigh in.

    “You Are Where You Live,” March Your highlight of Cranston/Providence in your March 2016 issue, page fifty-one, mentions Pawtuxet Village (“…the bobbing boats of Pawtuxet Village….”) but leaves out Warwick.

Style, January I am extremely disappointed in Rhode Island Monthly for the inclusion of the "Fur Sure" Style pages. Shame on you for advocating the horrible fur industry.

Rhode Island Monthly readers weigh in.

“The Tyranny of Low Expectations,” October In regard to moving older adults from sheltered workshops into the community, I’m quoted as saying “I’m not so keen on it for the older population because those folks, because of their disabilities, they don’t have the capacity to learn nor do they want to.” The lone statement makes me sound insensitive and ignorant…
