    Hola a todos,

    Por favor, ¿alguien me puede decir lo que significa? "alternative paper", ¿se trata de un semanario o algo así?

    Pongo un poco de contexto:

    A man had been attacking women who advertised "erotic massages" in the alternative paper.

    Muchas gracias a todos por adelantado.

    Things that are 'alternative' in this sense are not main stream.

    Alternative papers are newspapers/magazines that are not the main newspaper for a city. Most big cities in the U.S. have them and they are usually free. You can pick up copies all over town.

    Here's the one from Dallas: http://www.dallasobserver.com/
