how quaint

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 12, 2008

 In Boston, a town once famous for its Puritan ethos, an innovative dating service is customizing its appeal to married people considering adultery. "Life is short, have an affair," read the ads. The Boston Herald notes with a smirk that the agency is "unfazed by a quaint state law that bans adultery." And the office of the attorney general assures Herald readers that nobody is ever prosecuted for adultery these days.

Hey, with friends like these, why does the adultery-aid agency need to pay for ads?
