OCCUPY: On New England’s eastern coast, a small population of peaceful tent-dwellers are being forced out of their encampment by an armed oppressor seeking to control the land. Hope you had a happy Columbus Day, everybody! (AP, Globe)

OR: Hippies finally get smacked around a little after ignoring reasonable requests from the mayor and police. Sometimes you gotta go out in the street and get a little bloody, amiright? (Herald, WBUR)

GAMBLING: Maybe we’ll see an energized gambling opposition attempt an #OccupyTheSenateChamber filibuster (AP). I bet Eldridge has a sick tent ready to go.
