The New York Times does its obligatory Bulger overview with its obligatory paragraph about how South Boston has changed:
Though Mr. Bulger's reign in South Boston ended almost two decades ago - and the gritty Southie of his era has morphed into SoBo and is now overrun with yuppies and glassy condos - people here are still gripped by his story.
Everybody who calls South Boston SoBo please raise your hands - and then buy yourself a one-way ticket to New York.
H/t Dale Cruse, who adds: "Pretty sure even the Yuppies and DINKs in South Boston would give you a beating for calling it 'SoBo'."
