Week in Review

Week in Review
Week in Review The news sure was Boston centric this week with only the Anthony Weiner sideshow getting us off track. Even today’s New York Times prominently features a Boston story, a lengthy look at that awful story about a schizophrenic man in a rehab center killing his 25-year-old caregiver. But of course we’re all focused on the Boston Bruins winning the Stanley Cup and the corruption conviction of former Speaker of the House Sal DiMasi. It all pushed those poor tornado victims off the front pages, who received federal disaster relief this week. Joining us to break down all the week’s news—and give their “thumbs Up, thumbs down” on banning clothes lines, bandwagon fans and more—are former Massachusetts Congressman Peter Blute, Boston.com's Garret Quinn, and Terence Burke from Denterlein.

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
