MASSterList: Munis could get hit by fed debt cuts – Special Ed. scandal deepens – Lantigua vows cha

TRICKLE DOWN: The federal government is still downgraded… but he state is doing just fine… but now some towns and cities that rely on federal aid could be getting the raw end of Congress' debt deal (WBUR). Michael Widmer sounds the alarm (Enterprise). John Kerry's going to personally save each Massachusetts municipality while serving on theSuper Committee, right? (Globe)

TODAY IN CORRUPTION: The special ed scandal gets real. (SunAP)

LANTIGUA: Willie Lantigua does not go down without a fight (Eagle Trib.). Even if he does get recalled, can you imagine what it would take to physically remove him from City Hall?

CORRECTION: A mistake was made yesterday when MassterList reported that the House Ways and Means fish had died. I got my offices and fish confused and am happy to report that Kelly Slater, formerly known as Jack Bauer, is alive and well, as this photographic evidence details. Hope you didn't spend too much on flowers for the family.
