Letters to the Editor: January

Readers reflect on Seekonk's blue blood history and a senator's remorse.

How much I enjoy receiving Rhode Island Monthly every month; it’s like coming home every month. I still visit Rhode Island a couple times a year to see a few old friends. I remember when John Palumbo got involved with the magazine and many people thought it wouldn’t succeed, but he proved all of them wrong. Hard work pays off.

That is a wonderful historic account of the property. Jacob Hill is memorable, but also shows the history of letting men be boys. Thank you so much for sharing so richly the history of Jacob Hill.

I was interviewed by Melissa Randall on ABC 6 for a “Your Health” segment on breast cancer and OctoVie because she read your wonderful article. The articles you write for Rhode Island Monthly go beyond just the stories; you help connect people who are meant to meet.

“Sheldon Whitehouse,” November
Does he express any guilt for pushing Hillary on us and therefore passing the crown to Trump? Does he mention supporting a liquefied gas terminal in
a town he doesn’t live in?

Correction: In a photo caption for the Tech Ten Awards [November], we misidentified a representative of Gurnet Consulting. The correct spelling is Eduardo Lessa.
