Sadly some of the newly installed Mr. Potato Heads popping up around RI are meeting with miscreants. A couple of them have been vandalized. The one located outside the offices of the Providence Journal was spudnapped. He later turned up on the Brown University campus covered with protest leaflets.[Scott Pizio, 05/20/2000]
