Friday short takes: Buddy, blogs, and Brown Student Radio

-- Following up on my recent dispatch about the Buddy Cianci-Bruce Sundlun correspondence, WPRI's Tim White sat down with the former governor to get more of the details. In an 11 PM report last night, White detailed how Cianci's approximate day of release from the federal prison in Fort Dix, New Jersey, will be July 28 (unless he has an earlier departure for a halfway house or some similar destination).

-- Today's Boston Globe has an interesting story about concerns among political bloggers that publicists, shills, and other unwelcome creatures will infiltrate their sites.

-- Speaking of blogs, a group of Rhode Islanders affiliated with the nonprofit Longitude are blogging about their 10-day trip to Ghana.

-- A celebration of 70 years of Brown Student Radio will take place this Sunday, from 2-5 PM, at the John Hay Library. The related exhibit will continue through March 9.

-- John DePetro dropped me an e-mail to suggest another good Mystery Guest candidate for tonight's Providence Newspaper Guild Follies: AG Patrick Lynch. N4N will see everybody at the bar.
