    I agree with Toby that there are better ways of handling Thayer Street's purported parking-noise issues than to clamp down on motorcyclists.

    Kudos & Congrats to The Wild Colonial, which has been selected by Esquire magazine as one of the best bars in America for 2007.

    Not for Nothing, but the Colonial has previously been heralded in the Phoenix for offering "a thinking person's pint."

    Providence is receiving attention for impressive reductions in crime, and justifiably so. The city's 11 homicides in 2006 represented the lowest figure in many years, and this happened at a time when Boston, which enjoyed considerable success in reducing violence in the late '90s, has seen its murder rate soar.
