To start this week our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY RAGED AGAINST NASTY RATS ATTACKING THE DOWNTOWN DINNER CROWD and now our journalism goodness has become news fact . . .

Fox4: Downtown Kansas City residents concerned by growing problem of rat infestations

Money line explanation . . .

"A spokesperson with the health department, says inspectors believe the rats are coming from construction sites, as rat burrows and nests are unearthed, and old sewer lines are breached. Snook says those excavations often provide rats an easy avenue to the surface."

And so, amid hype over development and so many other Kansas City pet projects. We want to thank our blog community for bringing this important public health topic to the forefront of our local discourse.

Developing . . .

Things Everyone Should do to Take A Stand & Make Your Voice Heard About MU

Boycott MU alumni-owned businesses.

Tell local sports bars and restaurants to remove MU decorations or items from their restaurants or you will no longer patronize them.

Boycott organizations and businesses that advertise during MU sports. Watch for their logos on the backdrops behind press conferences, etc.

Call your cable or satellite company and tell them to drop the SEC Network or you will drop your subscription.

Call your local radio stations that carry MU sports and tell them to drop their affiliation with the MU sports network or you will stop listening to their station and refuse to patronize their sponsors.

Tell your local school not to accept any invitations from MU for your school band to participate in "band day" or MU homecoming.

Call your Missouri state legislators and demand that the Missouri Department of Revenue stop issuing MU personalized license plates.

Call your state legislators and demand that they pass legislation prohibiting Missouri state employees from displaying MU personalized license plates on their personal vehicles.

Call your state legislators and demand that they pass legislation placing a moratorium on all hiring of MU graduates to state government positions. Also demand that any current MU graduates currently in state employment will be the first laid off in any future downsizings.

Tell local retailers to stop selling all MU merchandise or you will stop patronizing them.

Call your state legislators and demand that MoDOT remove all signs for MU on the highways around Columbia and to enact a moratorium on installing any new signs for MU.

Do not patronize any businesses in Boone County. If you are driving through on the highway, do not stop until the next county line.

Do not re-elect any official who is a MU supporter or alumni.

If you are with another University, tell your athletic department not to enter into any contract for playing any future sporting events versus MU. For those other institutions already in such a contract, tell them to cancel it.

If you are within reasonable distance, go across the state line outside of Missouri to purchase fuel. License your car out of state if possible.

Call or E-mail the Missouri Lottery and tell them no more MU themed lottery scratchers tickets or you will cease playing.

If you happen to find yourself doing business with an MU grad in state government, find something about that person you didn't like and file a complaint.

Tell the Kansas City Royals to drop "Mizzou Day at the K." Or you will not attend any more games.

Call the State of Missouri Office of Administration and demand that they stop collaborating with MU to offer State Employee Discounts to select MU sporting events.

Find out which businesses offer MU Alumni Association discounts to members and demand they cease or you will stop patronizing them.

Call MoDOT headquarters and demand that they stop collaborating with MU to sponsor the "Annual Traffic & Safety Conference" held each year in Columbia. This event draws hundreds of MoDOT employees for what is really a taxpayer-funded "vacation".

Most of the MoDOT employees who attend this are licensed engineers just go solely to get their legally required professional development credits to maintain licensure.

Speaking of licensed engineers, if you find out one is an MU grad, find out something you don't approve of and file a complaint against their license with the Missouri Licensing Board.

Call the Missouri State Highway Patrol and demand that they stop using state taxpayer dollars to provide traffic control and security at MU sporting events. Let the campus and local cops do that. Don't make the rest of the state pay for it.

Call your elected representatives and demand that no more federal or state contracts be awarded to MU for any projects or research.

Call the NBC network and tell them to drop KOMU-TV (Columbia affiliate owned and operated by MU School of Journalism) as a network affiliate or you will stop watching NBC and patronizing their sponsors.

Tell the Truman VA Hospital on the MU campus to cease their affiliation with the University.

Please feel free to add to this list and pass this along to your friends and family.

And by "call", of course that includes e-mail, text, tweet, Facebook, etc.

"A spokesperson with the Health Department, says inspectors believe the rats are coming from the Council Chambers, as rat burrows and nests are unearthed by citizen media. Experts report those blogs and organizations often provide the only truth to expose the rat's diabolical schemes."

One of the rats is much fatter than the others and wears a bow tie. He eats way more cheese than he should.

Kindly tell us the name of the restaurant, and where it's at.
Where did you drive afterwards where you saw what you claimed you saw?
What time of the night?

I wouldn't automatically believe this claim. Lots of generic and vague statements.
