Week In Review: Superstorm Sandy; Election Countdown
Our panel talks about the week’s top stories:
— Sandy slammed into the East Coast Monday, leaving communities in a disastrous state just days before the presidential election. Some are still in the dark, without water and food.
— Also, the fallout from the meningitis outbreak spread to NECC’s sister company, Ameridose, triggering worries over drug shortages. The company is voluntarily recalling all of its products after a recommendation from the FDA to improve its sterility testing process.
— Lastly, the last big push in Election 2012. Republicans and Democrats alike are campaigning across the state and the nation as the clock ticks toward Nov. 6.
