Week In Review
Close maybe, but still no cigar. A government shutdown imminent, lawmakers make the numbers work, but continue to bump heads over social policies like abortion and the environment. Then, rape on college campuses gets a closer look; a suicide at the Cape Cod camp at the center of a growing sexual abuse scandal; WTKK’s always-provocative Jay Severin is shown the door in the wake of his latest comments and at Fox News, Glenn Beck is out too. Plus – thumbs up, thumbs down on banning sugary drinks, an e-commerce sales tax and other hot topics dominating the headlines this week. We’re joined by social critic and attorney Wendy Kaminer; Garrett Quinn, author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com; and by political analyst and talk show host Avi Nelson.
