Tomato Question

Tonight we're expecting our first frost, so I dutifully pulled the 30 some remaining green tomatoes from my one prolific plant. We're not fans of green tomatoes, so to ripen them, someone told me to wrap each one in newspaper and stick them under my bed. This sounds kinda like voodoo to me. What magical thing will happen under my bed and how do I know they're ripening since they're wrapped in newspaper? Alternate ripening methods would also be appreciated.
