The Frankenstorm Floods This Morning's Front Pages

Hurricane Sandy, the soon-to-be superstorm churning toward New York City as we speak, is expected to wreak havoc on much of the Eastern Seaboard Monday and Tuesday, from the Carolinas all the way to New England. In the process, it's managed to push this year's perpetual story-of-the-day—the presidential election—largely off today's front pages.
