Was That Really a Rat?

In response to Alberto Castillo's letter about the rat in Lobdell Court ["Rat Was a Surprise," Sept. 30]: I was in Lobdell a few days ago and saw a mouse running around the corner and said, "Hey, look! There's a mouse!"

Unless his rat incident was separate from my sighting of the mouse, I believe that Lobdell has a mouse, not a rat running around it. Then again, if Lobdell has a mouse, rat, or both, that says something about the wonderfully sterile, pest-free environment that our campus food is prepared in.

It may also serve to explain why the hamburger patties are so small at Burger King.
