News, Reports, and Commentary from New England

Welcome! This blog is the companion to a new public affairs podcast called “Radio Free New England.” The podcast and blog will touch on current events, politics, community development and issues related to the New England region. Every post will include my “Five Best Reads” of the week as well, featuring what I believe are the most important or provocative columns, articles, or posts published that week.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to your comments.
