How to Catch a Rat
A little off topic, but somehow I keep chuckling when I read this.
Here's the e-mail regarding the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County:

Good afternoon all,
As some of you may have heard, we discovered rodents in the Pavilion this weekend and had to close early. The Butterfly Pavilion is closed today due to the rodent problem. For safety reasons, we are unable to reopen until the problem is resolved. The exterminators have been inside and set two traps, one at the Guest Relations cashier station and the other at the gift shop station. Neither is visible to the public. Bait stations have been placed throughout the Pavilion since two nests were found. We have been asked to have someone from the Insect Zoo or General
Services walk through in the morning before the Pavilion opens to make sure there are no dead rats lying on the path.
We have signs posted on the Pavilion gates as well as each of our entrances. We hope to have it reopen tomorrow.
I can only imagine the same scenario at city hall. Where would you put the traps?
