Mass Decision 2010
The Governor's Race

2010 Mass Decision – The Governor’s Race: The governor’s race may come down to this – what do you choose to believe – that applies both to two news polls and statements from the candidates about whether there was any back room dealing among aides who jumped Tim Cahill’s ship – a new Suffolk University/News 7 poll shows governor Deval Patrick with a 7 point lead over republican Charlie Baker, with Tim Cahill far behind at 10 percent – however an internal Baker poll shows him ahead by 7 points – meanwhile after a judge lifted an injunction against the release of some of Tim Cahill’s internal campaign emails – more light comes to that subject – Cahill says his campaign dealings with the state treasury were all innocent – but the mails suggest otherwise. WGBH’s political reporter Adam Reilly and Garret Quinn, author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com join us to discuss.

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
