How is that taunting and baiting?

In reply to: Why the city that never sleeps.....never sleeps

Having lived in NYC, I think it's funny.

I remember a native telling me about tearing down a building the the vermin coming out of the building in waves. Another one was telling about his adventures as a telephone installer. The roaches would live in the phone boxes on the wall. The little old ladies would carry a can of Raid to the garbage shoot.

You put that many people in that small a space, you're going to have a bug and small critter problem.

What jumped out at me (pun intended)

Bedbugs are back, and they?re not just rearing their rust-colored heads in New York City. Experts say they?re spreading to other states and countries.

Bed bugs were not that uncommon when I was a youngster.

If they are indeed spreading, we'll be hearing lots more about them.

I recall when quite small of relatives talking about Bed Bugs. In those days (the '30s') some would make mattresses from the moss of southern old spanish oak trees. I believe they boiled the grey moss in a large outdoor cast iron pot, the same one used for heating water outdoors for clothes washing. The moss would turn black and they hung it out to dry on clothes lines.

that old saying as a kid when going to bed at night. ''Sleep tight, don't let the Bed Bugs bite'' Funny, I don't remember any Bed Bugs though.
