Detroit Tigers win pennant - in Africa

By Hal Brown
I was at the mall yesterday and ran into a security guard I know.
He told me about how all the merchants that carry sports merchadise would be working after hours.
They’d be waiting anxiously to find out if they’d be happily putting all the Red Sox 2013 Ammerican League Champions clothes and other merchandise on display and on the racks.

Sex for sale and legalizing prostitution

By Hal Brown
“Masseuse led double life” is the above the fold headline in The Brockton Enterprise. For some reason this is bigger news in the Brockton area than the Braintree area, since The Patriot Headline is “A.G. want chemist jailed 5-7 years.”. I am sure readers of The Ledger would be as interested in this story as those who read The Enterprise.
Come on, be honest. Who isn't at least a little bit interested in this story? How many men won't take aonother look atZyriah's photo and ask why they weren't like Justin Richard who wrote as a comment to the first article "Zyriah is translated to Steve!!!! That's a man baby!!!!!!"
That being said, the gender reassignment matter is what made this a headline story.
I bet The Enterprise sells more papers today than the Ledger.

What can anyone write about sex and prostitution that hasn’t already been written? For that matter, what can anyone write about the pros and cons of legalizing prostitution in the United States that hasn't already been written?

It’s all about morality: The case of the Middleboro hit and run driver

By Hal Brown
Michael Dutra(Updateed) I expect most of you have heard about the hit and run accident which killed Michael Dutra while he was riding his bicycle in Middleboro early Friday evening.
There are calls for this person to come forward. Certainly they have a moral obligation to do so.
As I write this it’s Monday morning. Presumably the police still do not know the individual’s identity. They do have leads, and I hope they have suspects. I expect that by now they know from experience that the driver isn’t likely to walk into the police station voluntarily.
(Includes a message to whoever committed this crime about their self-interest.)
New: A message to the passenger in the vehicle:
