On August 12th, the Providence Journal had an article on a new 
documentary movie about Providence's former and now imprisoned mayor, 
Buddy Cianci.  Here's a memorable exchange between his honor and a local 
TV station as quoted in the ProJo:

"Another crowd pleaser: When Channel 6 talk-show host Truman Taylortried 
to ask Cianci about the corruption investigation, saying the people 
would want to know. Cianci replied, "How does a station with a 3-percent 
rating know what the people want?" Then, he told the stunned Taylor: 
"You wanna take a break now, go ahead, because I think you're speechless."
