“Johnny, Get Your Gun,” April
In “Johnny, Get Your Gun?” John Taraborelli says, “America wants me to have a gun. Everything in our society not-so-subtly defaults towards making it as easy and appealing as possible.” Everything? Not in the anti-gun liberal subculture! “America wants” should make people wary. America’s big — Americans vary!

“Calamari Comeback State,” April
The article really shows how much squid affects RI’s culture and economy. Loved the interview with the squid fisherman. Thank you so much for your support for Fearless Fish. It really helps our business.

“Calamari Comeback State,” April Cover
So proud of this guy! Seeing his face on the cover of a magazine and being Rhode Island famous makes all the long hours, hard work and dedication worth it. Love you to pieces, chef John Bordieri.
