Week In Review: SCOTUS Debate Gay Marriage, Menino Won’t Run
History making events mark the week-in-review today. First, the Supreme Court hears two cases on gay marriage…. in oral arguments over the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8. And, Tom Menino, Boston’s longest-serving mayor, says he will not run for reelection.

Boston Globe “In the mid-1980s, when America’s small towns were being overrun by suburban shopping centers, Tom Menino was the first to persuade the National Trust for Historic Preservation to bring its rural, small-town Main Street revitalization program to urban America. Under his lead, Roslindale Village became the first urban Main Streets program in the United States.”
