“Rhode Island Red Awards,” January

Your reference to me in your “Dumb and Dumber” needs to be reviewed. Rhode Island Hospital at no time had the number that you mentioned in their possession throughout this transaction. Although for the above misstep, I enjoy your production.

I got to contribute a small part in documenting the year Rhode Island has had. The Rhody award “winners” are the best of the worst, the silliest and zaniest. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Rhode Islanders: We’re weird. I had a whole lot of fun with this assignment. Big thank you to Rhode Island Monthly for thinking of me for this article. And another huge thank you to Frog and Toad for letting us use the art from the T-shirt that took over the Internet, the Knock It Off shirt.

January 2021

This is the best issue I have ever received. The zoo article [“This Place is a Real Zoo”] meant the most to me since my annual visit is for the pumpkin display and swan boat ride. When my sister moved to Rhode Island in 1991 to teach at URI, I wondered what there would be to see and visit. Since then, every year except for a few years, I still find new activities to try when I come. I can’t wait for the 2021 visit.

Correction: In our February Current profile on Bill Bartholomew, we misidentified the TV station where Jim Taricani worked. Taricani worked at WJAR.
