On election day, the Providence Journal ran two editorials concerning matters important to Rhode Islanders. One was about the governor’s suggestion that it’s time to end the state income tax (a questionable idea, the paper said). The other was on the death of pianist Dave McKenna, one of the state’s cultural heroes. To read the Mckenna editorial, go here. Thanks to Rifftides reader Steve Caminis for calling it to our attention.
