Wow, the newly invigorated Boston Herald is really punching up these days: Yesterday, it ran a shocking expose on how a newspaper that's been dead for six years, its archives now stored at Northeastern, used to run lots of ads for escort services.
Now that America is woke to the plight of human trafficking after the scandal embroiling Robert Kraft and his trips to the Orchids of Asia Spa, should Northeastern University come clean about a dirty little secret hidden deep within its archives?
Woke? Dirty little secret? Is the Herald writer the one person in Boston who never saw the Phoenix's "Adult" section?
One can only hope he next turns his eyes inward, to the days when the editors at the Hearst paper in Boston (part of that proud Herald heritage) would ask their police reporters "is it dark out there?" about victims of violent crimes to determine if their attacks merited attention in print.
In the meantime, here's the Herald story, but you'll need a Herald subscription to read it.
