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.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

And let's turn now to an unlikely booming business: transplant tourism. That is our last word in business today.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Turkey has become a popular destination for people looking for hair implants, which is now expanding to facial hair. Who knew you needed that?

GREENE: Yeah. Yeah.

INSKEEP: But anyway, the Wall Street Journal reports that men hoping for a Tom Selleck mustache or an Abe Lincoln beard are heading to Turkey.

GREENE: Were we interested, it sounds like cosmetic surgeons remove hair from one area of the body and transplant it to the upper lip or cheek. And this procedure costs something like 5,000 bucks.

INSKEEP: Travel agencies are offering transplant packages - which also include a trip to the beach or a shopping trip to Istanbul.

That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.

GREENE: And I'm David Greene.
