"Unlike some subway systems (which will remain nameless), you don't see rats the size of house cats roaming Metro. Why not? Because we're so strict about eating and drinking in the system. So help us keep the critters away. Please don't eat or drink on Metro."

Via Mr. T in DC: A typical scene at the Columbia Heights Metro station: a mysterious dark puddle, likely urine, a stack of pancakes from IHOP, an empty booze bottle, and the remnants of graffiti on the granite. There are several garbage cans within a couple of dozen feet, and public restrooms in DCUSA right across the street.
Woodrow, the White House Mouse has a lot of cousins ... the WMATA mice. Here's a shot of one taken at Waterfront Metro. I couldn't get a good shot of the four I saw at L'Enfant Plaza. They're almost cute, unlike rats, but it was a bit alarming to see one start to climb the wall.
