Not Even Obama Can Stop The Rat Problem In Washington

Kinda symbolic, no?

Sylvia Keys, a calligrapher who’s lived in a condo there for 18 years, recently posted to the U Street Listserv that she finally scored an alley parking spot and, guess what? There are rats in the alley. And guess what else? They are “living, eating and partying on our motors. And leaving ‘debris’ behind,” Keys writes.

And that’s not all: “My taillight went out and the dealer said that rats had been chewing away the wires, thus costing me $200. And yes, the dealership did find a dead rat baby around my motor.”

 There’s no way she’s giving up her spot in “a very nice, newly bricked, alleyway” to battle the masses on 15th Street again. So she turned to the Listserv for help. The Listserv directed her to D.C. vermin czar Gerard Brown, who has a lot on his to-do list, including, as our almost-old cover story points out, bedbugs.
