Week In Review
Courtroom drama abounds this week. Governor Deval Patrick girds to take the stand in the federal corruption trial of Sal DiMasi; Jared Loughner is deemed unfit to stand trial; and despite leniency pleas from Mark Kerrigan’s family, after being convicted of a lesser change in his fatal altercation with his father, the brother of Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan receives a harsh prison sentence. Critics blast President Barack Obama for hobnobbing with British royals in the aftermath of the deadliest single tornado in more than 60 years. Alongside a handful of fellow Republicans, Senator Scott Brown votes against Representative Paul Ryan’s controversial Medicare overhaul – a plan that may have already cost the GOP a congressional seat in New York. And thumbs up, thumbs down on adhering to date-driven fashion decrees, American Idol and more. Terence Burke, Kevin Cullen and Wendy Kaminer join us.
