"The bartender's smile was like a rat that had just found a baby to chew on."
--Cynthia Voigt, Sons from Afar

Oh, Cynthia Voigt! That is not a good image. Although I do like the idea of rats having a Hierarchy of Delicacies, with baby at the very top. This changes everything. Charlotte's Web, why didn't you tell the truth? Templeton went to the Fair not to eat apple cores and cotton candy, but to snack on all the babies who had been left behind. That story is even sadder now!
