The debt ceiling didn't get any higher this week, and it's hard to believe the mood in Washington could get any lower.

Meanwhile, after a 35-year absence, the National Urban League returned to a Boston much-changed from the busing-riot-torn city of 1976. Yet, as the city tries to shed its racist pass, clear inequities remain.

Radio Boston takes on the week's news.

Guests:

  • Peter Canellos, editorial page editor, Boston Globe
  • Adrian Walker, columnist, Boston Globe

This segment aired on July 29, 2011.
