But such behind-the-scenes activity, heartening as it may be, isn’t the same as, say, Don Carcieri emerging from hiding to offer a detailed mea culpa, or Fox explaining why House Oversight inquiries into 38 Studios never really had teeth while he held the gavel, or former Fox confidante and handsomely-paid 38 Studios consultant Michael Corso offering a detailed breakdown of the leaked documents about his ties to the doomed operation. (Example: the 38 Studios headquarters renovation-budget spreadsheet with $25,000 mysteriously earmarked for Corso’s downtown café, Tazza.)

So next year — when, sadly, the 38 Studios meltdown is all but guaranteed to be ongoing — perhaps RIC or CCRI or URI can be convinced to invite Curt Schilling or former Economic Development Corporation executive director Keith Stokes or an executive from First Southwest (the bank Rhode Island is suing for 38 Studios-related fraud, yet has rehired for other state business) to say a few words after the last notes of “Pomp and Circumstance” fade.

What better entrée to the “real world” could grads receive than a clear-eyed account of the shattered state they stand to inherit from the folks who helped to break it?
