The cause of the deadly Back Bay blaze that killed two Boston firefighters comes out. Also this week, another Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance means more money in politics and big implications for political races around the region. Plus, Attorney General Martha Coakley leads bipartisan calls for tougher domestic violence laws in the wake of the Jared Remy case. And Big Papi at The White House — just an innocent picture or cynical marketing?

Guests

Mike Ross, former city councilor, attorney with Prince Lobel.
