As I've posted elsewhere, the Phoenix began as a Cambridge paper separate from Boston 
After Dark.  Both carried very adult personal ads.  I'm not sure, but I believe they may have 
started first in the Phoenix.  Then again, they may have started in an earlier "underground" 
paper called the "Avatar."
