Two bills approved in the State Senate Wednesday could affect President Donald Trump and his associates.

President Trump honored the 2018 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox at a White House ceremony Thursday, lauding the team as a "shining example of excellence" in "an American sporting tradition that goes back many generations."

The attorneys general of 38 states and territories sent a letter to congressional leaders on Wednesday, urging them: Please, let us bank the money generated by the country's booming cannabis business. Most states and several U.S. territories have legalized medical marijuana , and 10 states and the District of Columbia have legalized adult recreational use . But federal law still considers marijuana illegal, which exposes banks to legal risk if they handle weed-related money or transactions. ...

Boston Lyric Opera ’s latest production is an opera version of Margaret Atwood’s novel A Handmaid’s Tale , a story of a dysfunctional future society, staged in the most authentic setting possible, a basketball court. And not just any basketball court, but one at Harvard University, which is the setting for the novel.
