Look at the laws the state wants to get rid of and paying for rats is one of them.

So in the Macomb Daily Vitale blows off the city getting bad press on the Drudge Report because it also picked up a story about a "gay dog"? Therefore it is not a good news source to him.

Does Vitale not realize the Drudge Report gets ONE BILLION hits a month????
