Will Massachusetts See A Markey-Kennedy Senate Race?
Rep. Joseph Kennedy III is still considering a primary challenge to Sen. Ed Markey, and a recent Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll indicates that he might have a strong chance of success if he were to jump in.

However, while the last midterm elections did illustrate a growing appetite among some voters for new and younger leadership, Markey also comes with his own long track-record of progressive bona fides that Democratic primary voters value.

A new book from former New York Times science reporter Tatiana Schlossberg, "Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don't Know You Have," details ways in which our everyday choices in clothing, technology, food and fuel contribute to the problem — and how consumers can make a difference by demanding more of the companies and governments behind the systems at play.
