Speaking of rats, the other day I saw a man bludgeoning a rat with a large stick in the middle of our street. He'd been sanding a nearby house and was dressed from head to foot in pure white, his face swaddled in a white sheet. It gave the ugly scene an exotic quality, like some incomprehensible ritual violence splashed on the front page of the International section.

    Sounds like a great Mardi Gras costume.
