Brown and Warren quips spiral – Senate continues debating casinos – Tolman elected AFL-CIO president – Occupods still occupied by occupation

SUBSTANTIVE CAMPAIGN ISSUES: This is getting out of hand. The question of who should and should not be naked isn’t exactly a pressing issue this far from the election. Chatter about the candidates in the buff when it will really matter next fall. (Herald, Metro, Less is More)

UNIONS: In a surprise to no one, the AFL-CIO elected Sen. Steven Tolman as their new president. (Herald)

GAMBLING: The casino debate is still inching along, still being delayed and still not nearly as exciting as last year’s. (AP, Winchester Star)

OCCUPATIONAL HAZARDS: Occupy Boston is also still going on. At this rate, these people are going to have a complete financial revolution accomplished before the gambling bill even gets to Patrick’s desk. (. (Don’t worry, I helped.)
