Phillipe rejoins Jorge at Casa Diablo with a pernod

August 10, 2011

All’s well in the Cool, Cool World of Phillipe & Jorge. After leaving his longtime slot as half of the well-read Providence Phoenix column earlier this year, Chip “Phillipe” Young is reuniting with Rudy “Jorge” Cheeks for a return to P&J’s madcap world.

The recent passing of former governor Bruce Sundlun was a reminder of Phillipe & Jorge’s local cultural significance. A New York Times’ remembrance of Sundlun leaned heavily on sourcing from the Providence Journal, although it neglected to mention how P&J coined Sundlun’s nickname of”Captain Blowhard.”

These nicknames — from Joseph “Prince of Darkness” DeAngelis to Don “Laughing Boy” Carcieri — are part of the stock and trade of the weekly column.  The only thing worse for many public officials than being lampooned by P&J is being ignored. 

As they say at Casa Diablo, Grapefruit and pernod all around.
