I was out of town over the past weekend, so I missed the big news that the Chicago Public Schools had directed its investigators to look into that whole rent-a-protester thing.

I was up in Michigan. Which meant I stayed in a hotel. Which meant that before I could even put my suitcase on the bed, my wife had to check the bed for bedbugs.

Thus, we have a perfect tie-in for bedbugs week at the Reader!
