I must say, I did chuckle when Councilman Jennings assumed the honorary title of "Bug Czar" in response to reported infestations of bed bugs. What started as complaints from one apartment dweller has swelled in recent weeks to the pesky bugs being everywhere.
This week 45 people attended a bed bug summit where they heard from experts and exterminators.
I have to admit, I thought it was a hygiene issue but I guess it's pervasive, although we don't have any on Pearl Street, unless they are at Shooties.
Seriously, it is something that's hard to assess, as many would choose to deal with it themselves, rather than stand up in public and proclaim they have bed bugs.
