Question of the Day
An anonymous visitor left three roses and a half-empty bottle of cognac on Poe’s grave on the Jan. 19 anniversary of the writer’s birth every year for about six decades but failed to appear in 2010.
That’s not the end of the story, however. If anything, the no-show has deepened the mystery, attracting more curiosity to the ritual.
The curator of the Poe House and Museum said he’s expecting a larger crowd than usual Wednesday morning as fans gather in hopes that the Poe toaster will return. Poe was born in 1809 and died Oct. 7, 1849.
Lacrosse team sorry for racy halftime show
BOSTON | Boston’s professional indoor lacrosse team is apologizing for a racy halftime show featuring scantily dressed women giving lap dances to the team’s mascot.
An online video shows dancers taking turns gyrating in front of and on the seated mascot, Scorch, while an announcer bellows, “What do you think?”
Boston Blazers’ General Manager Doug Reffue said the team was “extremely disappointed” with parts of the halftime show Saturday at the TD Garden. On Monday, Mr. Reffue said it was part of a halftime promotion that “wasn’t executed according to how it was spelled out to us.”
Mr. Reffue said the dancers were not members of the Blazers’ dance team but fans who volunteered for the halftime promotion. He declined to discuss additional details, but said it won’t happen again.
Police look for man suspected of raping 7
DETROIT | Detectives are searching for a man who they think has sexually assaulted seven women since New Year’s Day and tried to attack another, Detroit’s police chief said Monday.
The first attack happened before dawn on Jan. 1, and the most recent attack happened at 2:40 a.m. Thursday, hours before volunteers hit the streets to warn women and circulate a sketch of the suspect, Chief Ralph Godbee said at a news conference.
All of the attacks happened about five miles from downtown Detroit, and in most cases, the victims were waiting for a bus or walking to or from a bus stop, Chief Godbee said.
