Don't Let the Bedbugs...Shop with Plastic Bags!

Apparently the secret to solving the on-going bedbug problem is the ordinary plastic bag (I am buying S.C Johnson stock next week)....or so says the NYC Dept of Education.
WELL, THAT’S A RELIEF: New York: Bedbugs invading classrooms at alarming rate, but Education Dept. says there’s no epidemic. “To prevent the spread at some affected schools, students and teachers are putting coats and bookbags into plastic containers and bags, a procedure adopted at PS 197 in Midwood, Brooklyn.” This wasn’t what I expected from the 21st Century . . . .
That's right Glenn, pesticides are soooooo 20th Century! But in this new "Green" century, I am surprised that they are using plastic bags! If they really want to enact meaningless solution and save the planet at the same time, they really ought to be using reusable grocery bags. That way they can delude themselves that they are solving an epidemic and saving the planet at the same time!
