Sex trafficking wasn't a major concern in the early 1980s, when Beth Jacobs was a teenager. If you were a prostitute, the thinking went, it was your choice.

Jacobs thought that too, right up until she came to on the lot of a dark truck stop one night. She says she had asked a friendly-seeming man for a ride home that afternoon.

Jacobs says he gave her something in an old McDonald's cup — a drug — and as she was waking up the man announced that he was a pimp. Her pimp.

The Boston Citgo sign, all 3,600 square LED feet of which has served as the backdrop to Red Sox games since 1965, is now officially a "pending landmark."

Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dalí spent much of the 1940s in the U.S., avoiding World War II and its aftermath. He was a well-known fixture on the art scene in Monterey, Calif. — and that's where the largest collection of Dalí's work on the West Coast is now open to the public.

Originally published on August 9, 2013 10:02 am



And now to end this for once and all, and I mean for this week anyways. Let's bring back our winners from our previous game. We have Olivia Bumgardner from Who's That Girl.


EISENBERG: Andy Cohen from War, Oy, What's It Good For. Liz Kash Stroppel from Character Voices, Mark Kujawski from Crisp Game Arenas and Kiki Turner from Pop Goes the Answer.


EISENBERG: I'm going to turn to our puzzle guru John Chaneski to take us out.

JOHN CHANESKI: Our final game is called Article Adjective Noun. It's a classic template for a book, movie and play title. Start with an article like "the" or "an," throw in an adjective and end with a noun.

In this round, we'll give you the name of an author, playwright or director then a noun. You give the adjective that completes a famous title by that person. For example, if we said F. Scott Fitzgerald's Gatsby, you would say great.




CHANESKI: That was pretty good, as in "The Great Gatsby." Now, we're playing this spelling bee style, so one wrong answer and you're out. You'll only have a few seconds to give us an answer. The last person standing is our grand winner. Here we go. Olivia, Nathaniel Hawthorn's letter.


CHANESKI: That's correct.


CHANESKI: Andy, Tennessee Williams' menagerie.


CHANESKI: Glass is right.


CHANESKI: Liz, Raymond Chandler's sleep.

EISENBERG: No, not the big storm. Let's see if Olivia knows the answer. Olivia, Sebastian Younger's storm.


CHANESKI: Perfect is right. Thank you for joining us, Kiki. Sorry.

CHANESKI: Thank you for joining us, Mark. We are now down to two contestants, Liz and Andy. Okay, Liz, Rachel Carson's spring.

COHEN: Silent.

CHANESKI: Silent is right. Andy, you win the game. Way to go.
