    Police are investigating threatening phone calls made two bars in Boston that cater to a largely gay clientele.

    The calls came in at about the same time on consecutive nights.

    A police spokesman said the first call was answered by an employee at dbar at about 7:30 p.m. Friday.

    Another call targeted the Alley Bar at about the same time Saturday night.

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    Boston Police Commissioner William Gross told the Boston Herald that his department doesn't "take any threats lightly."

    He says everybody should be able to enjoy a night out peacefully.

    Police said Monday night that the threats were generic and not directed toward the gay community. The case remains under investigation.
