2010 Mass Decision–Final Stretch Analysis: With Labor day behind us, so begins the unofficial two-month sprint to election day. The Boston Phoenix’s David Bernstein and WGBH’s Adam Reilly join us to discuss the governor’s race, which congressional contests to watch, and this year’s surprising hot button campaign issue - the so-called ‘ground zero’ mosque.

Delivery Driver Slaying: An arraignment is scheduled today in the brutal slaying of Richel Nova, a Domino’s pizza delivery driver. The three suspects are all under the age of 21. Boston Globe Metro Reporter Milton Valencia joins us with the latest.
Everything Money: Bentley College is among a growing list of universities apparently taking stock in its student’s personal financial aptitude. And, why do low interest rates inspire fear in investors? Our Everything Money contributor Sheryl Marshall has the answer. Check out the Wall Street Journal's article on "bunker stocks."

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
