The Ant Menace has gone from the room opposite. It was a little alarming, they were engaged in some kind of festival of movement and dance all around the window, and some of them had little wings, but they weren't Termites. Tried everything within reason, and my own suspicion is that next year they will return to their festivent which they really should hold in the outdoors so that those of them who had wings could fly off to conquer pastures new.
The other Ant Menace is far from over. It trickles around the synapses, a whole
body type of thing, and the only real cure for it is to go without access to the
newspapers until at least December of this year. If I hear one more person call
anyone stupid, or ignorant, or uneducated, or lumpen, or unwashed, I'm going to
have to invest in a device called a Defibrillator. It comes in convenient vest
form apparently and is available online from Costco.
