The Rat Occupiers

A letter to the Washington Post editor:

In his Jan. 17 letter, John K. Lambert urged that the Occupy D.C. protesters be evicted based at least in part on the fact that the site has rats. Let me assure him that the rats were here first. Since the dawn of civilization, rats have lived in cities underground, coming out at night to glean the food droppings of people, along with their teammates, the pigeons, a.k.a. “rats with wings.”

Occupy D.C. has moved into territory the rats had considered their turf. This is hardly a reason to deny the Occupy people their constitutionally guaranteed right to assemble and petition their government.

Charlie Garlow, Silver Spring
