    Rats - A very timely story...

    A Tourist walked into a Chinese curio shop in San Francisco . While
    looking around at the exotic merchandise, he noticed a very lifelike,
    life-sized, bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but was so
    incredibly striking the tourist decided he must have it. He took it to
    the old shop owner and asked, "How much for the bronze rat ?"

    "Ahhh, you have chosen wisely! It is $12 for the rat and $100 for the
    story," said the wise old Chinaman.

    The tourist quickly pulled out twelve dollars. "I'll just take the
    rat, you can keep the story".

    As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, the tourist
    noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers
    and had begun following him down the street. This was a bit
    disconcerting so he began walking faster.

    A couple blocks later he looked behind him and saw to his horror the
    herd of rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began

    Sweating now, the tourist began to trot toward San Francisco Bay .

    Again, after a couple blocks, he looked around only to discover that
    the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS, and were squealing and coming
    toward him faster and faster.

    Terrified, he ran to the edge of the Bay and threw the bronze rat as
    far as he could into the Bay.

    Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after the
    bronze rat and were all drowned.

    The man walked back to the curio shop in Chinatown .

    "Ahhh," said the owner, "You come back for story ?"

    "No sir," said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze Liberal."
