Editor's note: This report contains accounts of rape, violence and other disturbing events.

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.

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.

It's In The Cards

Originally published on July 26, 2013 10:11 am



Now, we're going to crown this week's grand champion. Let's bring back, from Six Degrees of Francis Bacon, Christy O'Neill.


EISENBERG: From This That or the Other: Sarah Bouboulis. From Bust a Cap: Darla Gutierrez. From Fruit Salad: Lauren Weisskirk. And from Just Do It: Andrew Sommerfeld.


EISENBERG: I'm going to ask our puzzle guru Art Chung to take us out.

ART CHUNG: Ophira, in keeping with this week's theme, this final game is called It's in the Cards. Each correct answer will contain one of the four playing card suits: spades, hearts, clubs or diamonds.

So for example, if I said Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were cast members on this kid's show, you'd say the Mickey Mouse Club. We're playing this spelling bee style, so one wrong answer and you're out. You only have a few seconds. The last person standing is our grand winner.

Remember, every answer will contain either the word spade, heart, club or diamond. Christy, you're up. Humphrey Bogart played this gruff private investigator in "The Maltese Falcon."


CHUNG: You got it.


CHUNG: Sarah, it's the title location where you'd find 50 Cent with a bottle full of bub. Three seconds.

SARAH BOUBOULIS: Champagne Club.

CHUNG: No, I'm sorry. Darla, do you know the answer? Darla?


CHUNG: Darla shakes her head.


CHUNG: Lauren?


CHUNG: In Da club is correct.


CHUNG: Sorry, we have to let Sarah and Darla go. Andrew, this U.S. military award is based on a design by George Washington. Three seconds.


CHUNG: No clue.


CHUNG: Christy, do you know?

O'NEILL: The Purple Heart.

CHUNG: The Purple Heart, that's correct.


CHUNG: We are quickly down to two players. Lauren, it makes a Tom Collins all bubbly inside.

WEISSKIRK: A diamond ring.


CHUNG: No, I'm sorry. Christy, if you know you'll win the game.

O'NEILL: Club soda.

CHUNG: Club soda is correct.


EISENBERG: Congratulations, Christy O'Neill. You are our ASK ME ANOTHER big winner. And we have a special prize for you. We have an ASK ME ANOTHER ultimate swag bag for you, filled with all kinds of cool stuff. Congratulations.
