Nightmare In Tulsa: Library Infested With Bedbugs
"Tulsa, Okla., library officials called in a secret weapon Wednesday to deal with a bedbug infestation: Oklahoma`s only bedbug sniffing dog, Ms. Liberty Belle.
The Tulsa Central Library was evacuated Tuesday after a library patron reported being bitten, the Tulsa World reported. Only a few chairs at the library were believed contaminated and were to be destroyed."
It`s one thing to find a bookworm in the library; it`s a horse of a different color to find bedbugs.
A library used to be a quiet sanctuary and refuge for students, intellectuals and book lovers, now it`s a magnet for homeless individuals and pervs surfing p[o]rn. Is it any surprise that a library in Tulsa was infested with bedbugs?
The Internet is making libraries obsolete and permissive librarians are speeding up the process by allowing anyone to enter.
As far as I`m concerned, you might as well turn libraries into homeless shelters; I will do all my research online.
