Dept. of Silver Linings. Last week we wrote some long winded piffle - Successful People and Less Stuff - and received some very nice comments. This one stood out in particular: I just lost EVERYTHING I own to a bed bug infestation in my old apartment. My roommate freaked when she had to leave her stuff, but I found it exhilarating. Now I'm in my new apartment and, although I've bought furniture, I have little else in there and my friends can hear an echo when I'm on the phone with them. Now, that's the spirit. (Thanks, CC!) MGR P.S. Bedbugs are a real problem in the city right now and a good reason to read this tip sheet and keep your apartment clean.
