EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Have you heard the one about the former mayor convicted of corruption who gets a talk radio show before heading off to prison? No, it's true. And it took almost the entire two hours of what could be called the Buddy I'm Back, Not That I Could Ever Leave radio show yesterday before the first incredulous caller pierced the onslaught of well-wishers. "I'm at a loss for words," said Adam, from Narragansett, R.I., speaking to former Providence Mayor Vincent A. Cianci Jr., who was sitting comfortably in short sleeves in the WPRO studio.

When he wasn't sitting in federal court, Providence, R.I., Mayor Vincent A. "Buddy" Cianci Jr. hit the hustings with a vengeance. A regular at every groundbreaking, fund-raiser and bris, the mayor followed each quip about his criminal problems with a plug for the city's new multimillion-dollar mall, bustling waterfront and luxury apartments. "The Providence Renaissance," Cianci called it. But as his 10-week corruption trial wore on, a different term seemed more appropriate. The city emerged as a Byzantine place, a dark warren of personal loyalties, remembered slights and cash bribes that greased municipal governance.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - When actor Anthony Quinn died earlier this month, his family turned to Mayor Vincent A. Cianci Jr. to tell the world. It turns out Zorba the Greek and Zorba the Mayor were friends. There is little physical resemblance between the late actor and the short, stocky Cianci, but they were in many ways kindred spirits. Like Zorba and Quinn, Buddy Cianci is openly passionate about food, drink, laughter and life itself. Like the famous character from the 1964 film, he's a free spirit who has a way of dancing around the rules.

A substantial majority of my long, happy career in newspapering has been devoted to stories that vilify miscreants and malefactors in public life. That's why I have a particular interest in books such as The Prince of Providence: The True Story of Buddy Cianci, America's Most Notorious Mayor, Some Wiseguys, and the Feds, by Mike Stanton (Random House, 384 pages, $24.95). The vast majority of men and women I have known in politics and government, I believe, have been honorable. But the brigands are more interesting.
