Phillip Coffey - Hoi Polloi

Hoi Polloi - by Phillip Coffey

Got much of my view of social injustice watching the "Three Stooges" whenever it was permitted, way back in the hills in the 60s on rainy or snowy Saturday morning Television.

The Hoi Polloi taking on the high society with the theatrics of slapstick comedy.

Letter: Do not squish or touch this insect!

Marie Freeman writes:

Make your children aware of this insect. "I think I found a triatomine bug. What should I do?" If you find a bug you suspect is a triatomine, do not touch or squash it. Place a container on top of the bug, slide the bug inside, and fill it with rubbing alcohol or, if not available, freeze the bug in the container. Then, you may take it to your local extension service, health department, or a university laboratory for identification.

Surfaces that have come into contact with the bug should be cleaned with a solution made of 1 part bleach to 9 parts water (or 7 parts ethanol to 3 parts water). -- https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/gen_info/vectors/index.html
