Providence Rhode Island
a: Providence ~
b: a massive version of South Boston
What: "Providence is like a massive version of South Boston. It's full of mumbling swamp yankees and the idle unemployed. Area hotels are infested with rats and Brown is well, Brown. I wouldn't send my dog to Brown, even though they've gotten rid of their flaky non-major philosophy. Providence is okay if you don't live anywhere near Providence. The state is dirt poor and fairly corrupt. If you have children they will grow up illiterate. Better than Baltimore, though, where your children will grow up dead."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
