    Talking about subway rats is a time-tested way to get in the news while avoiding the subject of subway bankruptcy, debts, pension underfunding, and deferred maintenance.  Kind of like federal politicians loving those “culture war” issues to distract people from the bankruptcy of the federal government and the decline in the standard of living.  I despise these diversions.
