RATS ON THE WEST SIDE, BEDBUGS . . . IN THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT? “The health department is the city’s top resource for people seeking to deal with their own bedbug infestations, in both their homes and their offices. A section of the department’s Web site is about bedbugs. It includes a page that the department itself might find useful, to ‘help building managers or owners of commercial buildings prevent bedbug infestations, and safely control them if they do occur.’”

Mayor Bloomberg might want to spend more time on the bedbug problem, and less time on nannyism. How about solving the 19th-century health problems before focusing on the 21st-century ones? Ya know?
