This week, Tarek Mehanna was sentenced to 17.5 years for terrorism related charges that had many First Amendment advocates up in arms.

Meanwhile, Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren outraised Republican Sen. Scott Brown in the latest fundraising period.

Also, 14 Boston University students were charged with hazing, assault and battery, and failure to report hazing after five apparent Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity pledges were found in an Allston basement bound, mostly naked, and covered in condiments.

And the House reveled its budget — $14 million smaller and very different from Gov. Deval Patrick's version.

  • E.J. Graff, resident scholar at Brandeis Women's Studies Research Center and a columnist and contributing editor at the American Prospect.
