I think the "See" and "Do" listings should be moved to the towns and have been doing that. I suggest the listings on this article be changed to provide a briefer overview with a link to the town. OldPine 11:26, 26 June 2006 (EDT)

Yep, that's exactly the way it's supposed to be -- some "teaser" info in the region guide, with links to the town pages where there are fuller listings. --Evan 11:33, 26 June 2006 (EDT)

Regions map[edit]

Nice map! Now, if we've got a regions map for Rhode Island, we must be getting close to having regions maps for all US states, I'd guess ;) Time to look and see which still need them (I've got a New Jersey regions map in the pipes). --Peter Talk 23:41, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

No, I did RI because it was easy, and not far from my home state. =) And it had well-defined regions already, unlike, say, PA. LtPowers 08:36, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

first sentence[edit]

The first sentence of the article says that RI is part of Massachusetts....but on the edit page, it doesn't display that way. Whats up with that? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)

You're seeing an old version that was previously reverted. I've purged the cache for this article, so hopefully it's looking better now. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:22, 17 October 2009 (EDT)

Banging around[edit]

I'm working on a project for school, and am banging around in the RI section. If any of my changes annoy, I'd love a chance to get feedback about them before you edit over the text. Obviously, if you feel the change can't wait... This project should be done by Nov. 10, 2009. Hope my work is considered a small upgrade. Thanks. RhodeIslandWrite 02:40, 23 October 2009 (EDT)

Looks good so far. LtPowers 22:37, 23 October 2009 (EDT)

parliamentary democracy[edit]

I'm confused by what this means. I have a degree in political science and I don't believe RI has a parliamentary democracy based on what I've read but a bicameral legislature, like every other US state except for Nebraska, which is unicameral (one legislative house). There is the RI General Assembly, comprised of the House and the Senate. A parliamentary democracy would mean the Governor was chosen from the majority party in the legislature, which is not true. The Governor is the head of the executive branch, like in every other US state. I think that part of the article should be rewritten b/c as it is written, it confuses people (at least ME) 23:10, 18 May 2013 (EDT)
