The Emily Rooney Show 8/13/10
Week in Review: Matt Amorello is arrested this week on drunk driving charges. It’s the latest in a series of personal and professional setbacks for the Former Massachusetts Turnpike chief. Did he fall from grace or was he pushed? The Big Dig, meantime, becomes a flashpoint in the governor’s race. Plus, Lakeisha Gadson is acquitted in the accidental shooting death of her seven-year-old son, Liquarry Jefferson. Should she have been made an example of? And finally – thumbs up or thumbs down on these issues and personalities: An unlikely hero emerges in a disgruntled Jet Blue flight attendant; the sales tax holiday weekend; and Shaquille O’Neal tries a host of new nicknames on for size. We are joined by Kevin Cullen of the Boston Globe, Kara Miller a WGBH contributor and Garrett Quinn, a blogger for Boston.com.
