Week In Review: Amid findings of rampant fraud and “systematic corruption” by an independent counsel, the Supreme Judicial Court has ordered an overhaul of the state’s probation department. Governor Deval Patrick lays out priorities for his second term and critics pounce on one controversial line item: in-state tuition for illegal immigrants. Nationally, a divided congress returns, John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi keep their positions but switch roles and Charlie Rangal begs for mercy. Plus, Scott Brown files a bill to modify national health care and a New York Times Magazine cover story confirms what some might call the obvious: Sarah Palin is considering a run for the White House. And finally - the “end of days” for Fourloko, NPR “nazis”, a royal wedding and thumbs up, thumbs down on people and places in the news this week. The Boston Herald’s Dave Wedge and The Boston Globe’s Joanna Weiss and Adrian Walker join us to chew over this week in the news.
