All eyes on Iowa for GOP caucuses – Does Mitt end up on top? – T fare hike backlash in Quincy

HAWKEYES: I sure hope nothing major happens in Massachusetts today, since every political reporter the dailies could dig up have been dispatched to Iowa to try to figure out exactly how these caucuses work and whether they will result in Iowans shrugging at eachother and saying "yeah, ok, just get on with it," which is basically equal to a vote for Mitt Romney at this point.

2013 PREDICTION: You’ll have no choice but to follow the former Treasurer’s advice and "stay out of Quincy" once the MBTA eliminates that entire branch of the Red Line because no one let them raise fares.
