it seemed weird to me that RI's population decreased by that much.

The SFCITYSCAPE post also points out how 1999 estimates for many cities were dramatically lower than the actual 2000 counts, notably in SF and Chicago. There has been many accusations that the methodology used by the census bureau to compile estimates makes urban numbers skew much lower. And even though these are estimates, the numbers are used to construct federal funding formulas.

sounds to me like the census is told to lowball the estimates...

I've edited this thread into a list of resources for the city of Providence, it's linked directly from the Providence homepage. If there's anything that should be added please let me know.

how about links for the radio station websites, the hotels (that have their own sites), and how about the jewelry district association and jen's tree people?

JDA is on there. I didn't feel like hunting down the link to Jen's tree site, but I will. I also got too lazy to add links for the hotels and radio stations, but I will eventually.

I'm gonna put this here, too, cuz I think it's a very important resource for everybody with a locally-oriented website to know about. RhodeB.us is a little hack that lets you bookmark specific RIPTA schedules. Go ahead and replace your apology for the RIPTA site with links that are actually useful! This is how I used them on Pawtucket Now.
