After making inroads in Emmaus, Hellertown and Easton, online news source AOL Patch has now gone live in Bethlehem. It's edited by Morning Call alum and Iron Pigs maven Daryl Nerl. Unfortunately, he also likes the Mets.
The bastard has already skunked me. While I was distracted by this beautiful sight at City Hall, Nerl was telling you that Bethlehem's ZHB has granted a controversial expansion at Elias Farmers Market.
Although newspapers are a little worried by Patch, this experiment might actually be good for them. After all, Patch creates interest in their product - the news. How can that do anything but help?
