What better way to complain about media oversaturation than to feature two articles on the supposedly covered-to-death subject. That's what The Washington Post did today regarding bedbugs. An article complaining about the surplus of bedbug horror stories right next to a bedbug horror story. Talk about speaking out of both sides of your mouth.
Do I have any readers who have had bedbug infestations? Because I suffered through one for almost a year. It was absolute Hell. One was crawling on my head and fell into my ear. I had to stab it to death with a Q-Tip. My bedsheets were covered in blood dots. I woke up at least three times every night. Even when I wasn't getting bit I would wake up and turn the lights on quickly just to make sure.
If you've suffered through bedbugs, you know that all the newspaper stories in the world aren't enough.
