Week In Review
Today we have a show that would make ol’ Fyodor Dostoyevsky proud. Crime and Punishment is our theme as we put our spin on the week that was. After spending 16 years on the run with her main-mobster-squeeze Whitey Bulger, Catherine Greig will be staying put for awhile — eight years to be exact — as she is sentenced for her role in keeping the feds off of Whitey’s trail. Does the punishment fit the crime? Plus, former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky faces his accusers, the DOJ gives up on John Edwards, and Lance Armstrong once again faces accusations that he’s a doper. Down under — after 32 years — a court of law makes it official: The dingo really did eat her baby. Finally, we get the panel’s “thumbs up, thumbs down” on tightrope walking over Niagara Falls, bacon sundaes and more.
