Keep on slogging

A New England nor’easter promised to disrupt life again today after knocking out power for tens of thousands, sending trees crashing into homes and cars, causing spinouts and accidents, and paralyzing major rail and air travel. (By Michael Levenson and Eric Moskowitz, Globe Staff)

Moments frozen in a Back Bay morning

As the nor’easter descended early yesterday, bringing with it icy winds, snow-day revelry, and slushy commutes, here is what unfolded in one corner of the city. (By David Filipov, Globe Staff)

Kennedy’s decision
throws field wide open

Vicki Kennedy’s latest — and she says final — declaration this week that she will not run for Senate next year sets off a scramble among Democrats to find a candidate who can mount a serious challenge to Republican Senator Scott Brown. (By Frank Phillips, Globe Staff)

Obama calls for unity and healing

Summoning the soul of a nation, President Obama last night implored Americans to honor those slain and injured in the Arizona shootings by becoming better people, telling a polarized citizenry that it is time to talk with each other “in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.’’ (By Philip Rucker and Anne E. Kornblut, Washington Post)

Bobby Sager is chairman of the board of the revived Polaroid, a name that for decades was associated with the Boston area, where he grew up and still lives. His mission now: restore Polaroid’s status as a global brand — the “next Apple,” as he puts it. (By D.C. Denison, Globe Staff)
