Security tightens in wake of bin Laden killing – Delegation members praise Obama – Gov and Speaker talk muni health

Tear yourself away from reading every little detail about the death of Osama bin Laden and the Navy Seal squad that shot him in the face long enough to catch up news from Beacon Hill.

No terrorist masterminds were killed yesterday at the State House, but we have something just as sexy: the Governor and legislative leaders talked about health care (AP)! Ok, it’s not nearly as exciting as commandos shooting faces, but it will do. MORE: T&G

Praise continues to pour in (SunChron.) from both sides of the aisle (WWLP) for President Obama’s move to take out bin Laden. Back home, patrols at Logan Airport and on the MBTA are increased (Globe).
