Gov tours hurricane damage – Moody’s likes Vegas companies’ chances in MA – Obama uncle arrested

IRENE: Gov. Deval Patrick was out and about yesterday touring areas damaged by hurricane Irene (WWLP, ABC40, Republican). But he wasn’t out and about enough on Sunday for some (AP). PI likes his snazzy disaster vest.

CASINO PUN: Moody’s is putting its chips on Nevada’s Caesar’s Entertainment Group and other Las Vegas companies to get pieces of the expanded gambling pie. (LV Review-Journal)

WACKY UNCLE ONYANGO: So President Obama’s uncle got picked up for drunk driving (outside the Chicken Bone!) and is now possibly going to be deported to Kenya (AP, Herald) . I guess the MetroWest Daily News didn’t think this was all that important when they quietly reported the arrest, and his name, last Friday. (h/t K.C.)
