The TSP Ratstravaganza receives first celebrity endorsement

In the form of East Village resident Padma Lakshmi, who is on the TV and stuff. Part of an interview with New York magazine:

What do you hate most about living in New York?
The rats in Tompkins Square Park. I’m constantly on the phone to 311.

Who is your mortal enemy?
The rats in Tompkins Square Park.

Then she definitely should not look at Bob Arihood's post today of rats eating a squirrel in the Park. (Now with correct link! Sorry!)

Oh Padma, Sweet Padma.
311 is located upstate. They could care less about your rat concerns.
By the way, the calls are not really anonymous.
Call me...

She should use the rats as ingredients on her show. Ratings gold!

Interesting letter in The Villager this week from someone who thinks it's not nice to kill a rat. The writer suggests that one is supposed to trap them in gentle cages and take them to the country or some such. "Ratopia"
