A well-meaning friend sent me an article last week about the importance of cockroaches in the grand scheme of things.
The article was illustrated by a full-color photo of a dead palmetto bug, on its back, legs in the air (the only decent position for a palmetto bug, in my view) and it began by saying that the photo would probably induce shudders in most of us. Well, duh. I tried telling myself that that hideous-looking dead thing was some female roach’s son, but all I heard back from my heart was that he clearly had one very ugly mama!
