Dewy deoccupied, mostly – Jingle Booze Bill – Top cops want Lantigua out – Ross to explore Cong. run

DEOCCUPIED: Every news organization in town was on the ground in Dewey Square last night for what seemed like the last hurrah of Occupy Boston. Only it wasn’t much of a hurrah, or even much of an eviction. Many of the protesters have packed up and vacated after the city’s order of eviction yesterday, but some still insist on camping until the bitter end. The best coverage comes from the folks who have been out there from the beginning. (Globe, Herald)

JINGLE BOOZE BILL: I don’t usually link to State House News Service stories, but that headline demanded it.

LANTIGUA: 85 percent of the Lawrence Police top brass want Mayor Willie Lantigua out of office.

FOOD TRUCKS FOR EVERYBODY: The thought of ‘Mike Ross For Congress’ ads, or even the simple idea of Mike Ross campaigning in Fall River or Taunton, really puts a smile on my face. (Globe, Herald)
