Remember Barry Link, the Vancouver Courier journalist who wrote about his bed bugs?

This is a new post from Barry Link [Note: updated link to archived story], which focuses largely on the many ideas people suggest (people besides PCOs) for fighting the bugs. Hmm, Barbra Streisand albums. Now there’s an idea we hadn’t heard before. Cats? Barry’s right–not only do they sleep all the time, but unless they’re staring at your face at 5 am, they’re unlikely to catch and nosh on your bed bug friends.

He also mentions Bedbugger.com. Thanks Barry! Hope your bugs are long gone soon.

Thanks Barry! Thank you so much. It’s so good to totally relate to a story in the press.

I know this is an old article, but I wish I could still find it.

The link above doesn’t work. A quick google search doesn’t bring up anything either.

Hi Omid,

I am sorry, too, that the link does not work.

These days, most news outlets use permalinks, but some newspapers don’t, and instead recycle their links. It’s a shame, really.

Omid, actually, I have now found both the links to this story and the earlier post (follow the links to the earlier post referred to in this story) by Barry Link.

I had to google the Vancouver Courier Archives, and then search for bed bugs, and then ignore the four articles about bed bugs, and search for bedbugs, in order to find Barry’s stories again.

You can click above and see the correct story now.

Once again, news media, a plea for permalinks?
