72 % for Mitt in Mass. – DiMasi can’t stay in R.I. – S.P. Murray in Worcester – Lawrence subpoenas

MITT MONITOR: Former Gov. Mitt Romney’s miraculous come-from-behind, 72 percent victory in yesterday’s Massachusetts presidential primary wasn’t the only squeaker last night for the Mittster. He also won Ohio by 71 fewer points than he won Mass. (Plain Dealer) and took home delagates from several other states on Super Tuesday. There are approximately 700 headline links further down in the list, so enjoy Mitt Madness, everyone.

WE ARE HERE TO VIEW THE TAPESTRIES: What the heck else went on yesterday? Well, Senate President Therese Murray gave a lecture about medieval tapestries at Becker College in Worcester. No, that’s not it at all, it was about education, the innovation economy, etc. (T&G) I sure hope no one read that first sentence and tweeted about tapestries.

FEDERAL HILL: Here’s a DiMasi tidbit from the AP: The feds are being mean and not letting poor old Sal stay in Rhode Island.

LAWRENCE: A round of subpoenas hit Lawrence officials in the Lantigua case. At least one of my favorite investigations seems to be making some progress. (E. Trib.)
