Legislative redistricting maps this afternoon – Protesters get into failing print media business – NTY on Mass. post-RomneyCare

PREDISTRICTING: I totally expected to wake up this morning to a Boston Globe featuring every detail of the new legislative redistricting plan. Instead, all I saw was something about kids with iPads. So you’re getting old news this morning, but it’s the best we can do (AP). But wait, the Sun’s coverage of the Lowell map is shiny and new.

OCCUPY: Perhaps legislative leakers gave the details to the wrong Globe and they used the maps to make protest signs or shanty shack walls. (Metro)
