- In Duxbury, Massachusetts, there are still questions around the disturbing story of the high school varsity football team — accused last week of using anti-Semitic language.

Among those who took action right away was State Sen. Barry Finegold. He talks to us about his open letter inviting the team to meet with him, which they did over the weekend.
