News icon may close

I remember from my days in New England stopping into the Out of Town News stand in Harvard Square whenever I was up there.

Now comes word the 80-year-old icon may close -- Hudson News says it's just not as profitable as its airport operations (where the company can gouge you for a drink and a crummy snack).

The city (which owns the kiosk) is now looking at alternatives for what should be a killer location. A few months, ago, that probably would have been a Starbucks. But with that company's latest profit plunge, who knows.
