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.

It's Set: Jimmy Fallon To Replace Jay Leno On 'Tonight Show' In Spring 2014

Apr 3, 2013
Originally published on April 4, 2013 6:04 am

Here's the official word, courtesy of NBC News' tweets:

-- "JUST IN: Jay Leno will depart NBC's 'Tonight Show' in Spring 2014; Jimmy Fallon to replace, NBC says."

-- "MORE: 'Tonight Show' will return to New York City in 2014; Lorne Michaels will be executive producer."

As our Monkey See friend Linda Holmes has correctly said, the "late-night wars are so boring." Still, as The New York Times points out, The Tonight Show is "the most storied and successful program in late-night television." And this will return the show to where it started — New York.

Oh, and this time the change is for good, Leno insists. In 2009, you'll recall, he left for prime time. The handover of Tonight to Conan O'Brien didn't work. After eight months, O'Brien left the network and Leno headed back to late night. (Correction at 5:10 a.m. ET, April 4: Earlier, based on information from the Times, we were incorrect about how long O'Brien hosted the show; we've corrected the time reference.)

But, Leno tells the Times:

"The main difference between this and the other time is I'm part of the process. The last time the decision was made without me. I came into work one day and — you're out. ... [Now] there really aren't any complications like there were the last time. ... This time it feels right."

The Jay-to-Jimmy switch has been talked about for weeks, of course. Last night, the two funnymen sang about the saga.

Update at 1:50 p.m. ET: We're adding a question (it's not a scientific survey of public opinion, by the way).
