Week in Review
We round up the headline and bylines of the week with our panel of pundits and prognosticators. Former House speaker Sal DiMasi’s corruption trial gets underway with a witness list that reads like a who’s who of Boston politics. President Obama releases his long form birth certificate and “The Donald” takes credit for it. Has the birther debate finally been laid to rest? Plus, it’s England’s biggest event in a generation. We check in with WGBH’s Jared Bowenabout how New England is celebrating the Royal Wedding. And, thumbs up, thumbs down on buying Marlboro’s with an EBT card, outsourcing city signage, and other people, places and items in the news. We are joined by Former State Treasurer Shannon O'Brien, State SenatorRobert Hedlund and The Boston Globe Magazine columnist Tom Keane.
