Gov. Patrick declared a state of emergency in advance of Sandy's arrival sometime tomorrow. If something can be tied down, tie it down or bring it inside - including Halloween decorations.

Look for the Dems to crow that the state's unemployment rate is down and the Republicans to thunder about how the number of jobless increased. The Globe attempts to explain how that could happen; the Herald gleefully predicts the crushing job-loss news will crush Deval Patrick's chances.
