The New York Times offers quips from Mayor Bloomberg’s appearance on the David Letterman Show Wednesday night, including the Mayor’s remarks about bed bugs:
Mr. Letterman also touched on a few subjects close to the hearts of many New Yorkers — like vermin.
‘What are we going to do about the rats?’ Mr. Letterman asked. ‘On Manhattan. Forget the other boroughs. And the bedbugs. What are we going to do?’
‘We’re going to try to export them,’ Mr. Bloomberg said.
‘If you brought the rats to come in to kill the bedbugs,’ Mr. Letterman asked, ‘who wins?’
‘Actually, the bedbugs are probably tougher,’ Mr. Bloomberg said.
No video of this part of the segment is available as of this writing, but we’ll add it when we can.
But seriously, folks, can someone ask Mayor Bloomberg what’s happening with the city’s bed bug plans?
