A Letter From Whitey Bulger! Three local high school girls decided that for a leadership project, they would write a letter to the infamous crime boss Whitey Bulger in the Florida prison he now calls home. Surprisingly, they received a response from the mob boss, in which he expressed regret over his choices in life, and advised against a life of crime. We’ll talk with one of the girls about the project and the unexpected response they received. Are you surprised to hear Bulger look back on his life with regret? Or do you think he only regrets getting caught? Where is the apology to the families of his victims? Call in and add your voice to the mix!
Boston 2024 2.0? The Boston 2024 Olympics committee unveiled an updated plan today, at least partially in response to all of the input and criticism the initial bid has received so far. Boston Herald reporter Jack Encarnacao has been covering the Olympics story throughout its rocky beginning, and he sits down with Tim to discuss the new changes and what it would all mean for Boston and the rest of the region. Do you think the Olympics could work here? Are you glad the bid committee is at least listening and responding to critics? Call in and join the conversation!
