This morning I took a picture of the Boston Herald vending machine.

I’ve seen other media references to “Tampa” today.

It seems as if somehow the conglomerate knows that I have my period.  I bought supplies for it the last time that I had it, and those aren’t gone, so the conglomerate can’t know that I have my period from my having bought supplies for it this time, because I haven’t bought them this time.

How, then, does it know, and why is it that it has turned it into degrading, front page news, or news at all?

Is it:

a)       Because the conglomerate respects people’s privacy on any level and also is horrified at the thought of anyone being degrading to women?

b)      Not a.
