Now, Where's My HazMat Uniform?
If you live between Lemmon Avenue, Kings Road, Maple Avenue, the Denton Drive cut-off and Inwood Road, the city has a favor to ask you. Like, could you please, pretty please, stay inside tomorrow night -- say, between the hours of 10 p.m. and 3 a.m.? Swell. Nothing big -- just a mosquito spray-down scheduled, following the discovery of a second pest testing positive for the West Nile. And, as always, the "insecticide is considered safe," dig. Only, this word of warning: "Persons out when spraying is to take place should be alert for trucks and should not follow them." Because that would just be weird. Oh, and, as always, I blame Highland Park. --Robert Wilonsky
