The saddest part about the Pizza Rat story is that the slice was likely from Sbarro.

It's likely Seattle rats and New York rats are different. (Seattle ranks higher for rat infestations than New York, interestingly enough.) Seattle rats are generally heavier, proportionally -- based on my sightings in Chinatown.

It's completely plausible that this is a legit New York subway rat. Every time I visit New York, seeing a rat couple scurry on the subway tracks is my inagaural "Yes, I'm in New York" moment every time.. and this rat definitely looks like a subway rat.

Pizza is an equalizer among the classes, orders, families, genera, and species.

Right there in the title. No one who's a climate change denier would write that title.

Solk512: did you even read the piece? Think what you want about Mudede, but he was doing anything BUT arguing against Cliff Mass.

Dead Pedantry: "Dark Star" was originally released as a 2+ minute standalone A-side. The single tanked. The Live/Dead version is certainly the first appearance in its majestic form, but the single is technically its original appearance.

Emily, I'm curious what you think of Document & Eyewitness and all the various solo & side stuff (like Dome) from the early 80s. That stuff is completely underrated IMHO.

And hence Washington state Republicans killed their primary chance for winning key elections in 2016. Not that I'm sad about that. I just wish the status quo wasn't an already depressing state of affairs.
