Having been away for a week, N4N will ease back into the blogosphere by bringing attention to two pieces from last week's Phoenix.
Brian C. Jones offered a characteristically astute take on the big picture crossroads facing Rhode Island as it faces a serious budget deficit.
On a lighter note, I wrote about how Erica Sagrans, a former Phoenix and RI Future contributor, isn't the only staffer in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office with a Rhode Island link. Brendan Daly, the brother of WPRI-TV reporter Sean Daly, is Pelosi's press secretary.
Look for a lot more blogging in the week to come.
