Providence's mayoral candidates, on bended knee

Flat Patties

Making a virtue of a usually guilt-ridden quickie
A fast-food cheeseburger is like a drunken assignation with a stranger met at a wedding reception: momentarily delectable but often leading to shame, nausea, and possibly even health issues.
