A.C. stabbing deaths make headlines

Is "don't do" AC the message?

A.C. stabbing deaths make headlines

A month after the launch of Atlantic City's $20 million re-branding campaign, "2 women fatally stabbed in A.C." is today's banner headline in the Atlantic City Press.

"Tourist Death Trap," proclaims the Philadelphia Daily News.

Local stories about the attack -- in broad daylight -- that claimed the lives of two Canadian visitors won't alone negate the glitzy promotional blitz of "DO AC."

People around here are already familiar with what's good, and not-so-good, about the place.

More worrisome for the tourism folks: Today's headlines in the Canadian media, including  the CBC, the Star, and the Globe and Mail.
