MASSterList: Bialecki’s casino stocks raise eyebrows – Warren embraces OWS as crime and security become issues at Boston camp – Redist. panel passes draft plan

GAMBLING: The Globe smacks Economic Development Secretary Greg Bialecki’s financial disclosures like a pinata to see what falls out. It’s not candy, unless you consider casino company stocks candy. Which I do.

OCCU-PUN: According to some news reports (AP) and radio guys, Elizabeth Warren has been named the Official Hobo Queen of the Occupy Movement or something like that. Meanwhile, the Boston camp’s turning into a hilarious microcosm of everything (Herald) that’s wrong with society (Metro).

THE SHUFFLE: With the Redistricting Committee signing off on a draft plan for new district maps (AP), some communities (MetroWest) and leaders (T&G) are still upset.
