Week In Review 
Week in ReviewOops just doesn’t quite sum it up when you look at all the gaffes, blunders and gross examples of misjudgment that took place this week. What in the world Penn State coach Joe Paterno and others were thinking when they didn’t deal with a sex abuser years ago is anyone’s guess. What in the world Herman Cain is thinking by denying all allegation of sexual harassment by credible witnesses is also a mystery. So is Tim Murray's dubious account of what happened during an early morning car crash last week. We’ll discuss all of that and of course Rick Perry’s "oops" with Regan Communications' Mariellen Burns and Boston Globe columnists Tom Keane and Joanna Weiss. Plus thumbs up, thumbs down on Ashton Kutcher quitting twitter, shopping at midnight on Thanksgiving and more.

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
