NYC Rat detective

Replace the rats, keep the cheese

I now have learned that todays society has become more jadded and less impressed with todays brand of rat. I believe this could be detramental to our rat population swilling in the cities. I have taken time to watch some rats running through the streets and somehow something appears to have changed in their stride. In years gone by, rats seemed to have some value to the common working man. the rat would be respected for living on as the man tried to keep him down, thrived in a workplace environment where most would give up and look for new opportunity.

       Maybe the rat has changed, but only as much as the common man has changed. Like all commensurals, the rat & the city human are locked in evolutionary sync. I'm all for giving rats dignity if some might rub off on their hosts, but I'm not optimistic.
