One of the local radio stations (I think WPYX, Pyx-106) has been reporting about an "outbreak" of "irradiated" or "radioactive" (they confuse the terms) rats ("at least 13" long!") in three or four counties, apparently from Knolls Atomic Power Labs. I thought it was a joke, but it's been going on quite a bit and they had people apparently calling in and describing the situation seriously. If it's a joke, they've carried it way too far. And these things are coming through the sewers and they're having people put 45lb+ weights on the toilet lids to keep the things from coming through?
I must get verification of this. Or else prove it's a hoax and tell 'em they've really gone stupidly over the line.
