DeBlasio's New New York:“Rat Reservoirs,”

NYC Launches New War Against Rats: It will target so-called “rat reservoirs,”
which are areas where rodent populations survive and thrive, such as subways, sewers and city parks. It’s welcome news for many city residents, who claim rats — some the size of small dogs or cats — are running rampant in their neighborhoods A sanitation worker said he has to shake and kick bags of garbage to scatter the rats for fear they’ll jump up and bite him.

They should make the city a rat preserve and limit access to a few members of the public chosen each year in a raffle. Rats are wildlife, people are just people.

Gee, I suppose there are certain neighborhoods that have more rats than others, uh?
