Remembering Myra Kraft

Remembering Myra Kraft:
Myra KraftSad news this morning as learned of the passing of Myra Kraft, wife of Patriots owner Bob Kraft and a force in this community of her own right. Myra Kraft had been battling cancer for several years and was making fewer and fewer public appearances while her husband has been a visible part of the NFL lock-out negotiations. Myra was once listed as one of the 20 most powerful women in Boston as president of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation – she also served on the boards of the American Repertory Theatre, United Way, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston and Brandeis University. She was 68. We are joined by co-host of Sports Legends New England Bob Lobel, former gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker and WGBH Vice President Emeritus and Myra's cousin Howard Jacobson.

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
