- Series Description
HUB CITY AT ITS BEST. A LOOK AT EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY INTERESTING IN BOSTON. HOSTED BY EMILY ROONEY. Series release date: 1/1997
- Program Description
1) Popular arthritis drug Vioxx recalled by Merck because of link to heart attack and stroke risk. Some patients can switch to Celebrex, others to simpler anti- inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen if there is no underlying G-I condition. 2) Will the presidential candidates use the podium in the first debate to prosecute each other or state their own positions? Bush must not dwell on Kerry as flip-flopper. Kerry must be less tedious, more likable, and tough on Iraq. 3) Jaws author Peter Benchley talks about female great white shark roaming off Woods Hole; and generally about sharks' feeding and predatory behavior. He is lobbying for marine protected areas. His papers and family memorabilia are on display at BU.
