Week In Review
Week in ReviewEconomic jitters and market volatility have economists warning about the increasing likelihood of global recession. Will President Barack Obama’s Martha’s Vineyard vacation be cut short? Rick Perry bursts onto the presidential campaign trail – drawing huge crowds and comparisons to his predecessor, President George W. Bush. But does the current Texas Governor have staying power? Meantime, as state lawmakers move closer to a redistricting plan that could see Massachusetts Congressmen Stephen Lynch and William Keating going head to head, Elizabeth Warren takes a big step toward challenging Senator Scott Brown.  And – it took a visit from the state police, but Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy finally removed the a controversial post that spawned the scandal better known as ”Brady baby gate.” Plus – thumbs up, thumbs down on the state paying for a convicted murderer to get a sex change operation and more. We’re joined by Boston Globe columnist Joanna Weiss; by Charles Baker, a former Republican candidate for governor and a former CEO of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care; and by Tom Keane, a freelance columnist for the Boston Globe Magazine and a former Boston city councilor.
