This week, Super Tuesday came and went, and the candidates edged closer to the GOP presidential nomination.

"Tomorrow we wake up and start again," Mitt Romney said. "And the next day, we'll do the same."

Meanwhile, culture wars turned ugly thanks to Rush Limbaugh, who called a Georgetown law school student who suggested that health insurance should cover contraception "a slut and a prostitute."

"And I again sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for using those words to describe her," Limbaugh said in a public apology last weekend.

Locally, the Mattapan murders trial is nearing an end. On Wednesday Marcus Hurd testified. Hurd was the lone survivor of the shooting and was left paralyzed from the neck down as a result of his injuries.

And a Massachusetts man was ordered to pay child support for twins conceived through in vitro fertilization after the couple seperated.

We take a look at the week's top stories.
