Getting Rid of Rats with Alliterative Slogans

Which of the Mayor's slogans do you find more effective in controlling the rat population:

"Enforce, Eradicate, and Educate"

OR (the new one)

"Comply, Control, and Cover"


My suggestion would actually be to make sure DPW picks up trash on the days they are supposed to (not sure what happened with them this week), cite people for putting out trash early, and make sure people are using barrels...Remove, Reprimand, and Review!

Shamrock, you miss the point.

The original slogan was ok, but it didn't have the punch of the new slogan. Now, they have added a nifty logo that will really do in this rat problem. It's all about the logo!

New Logo

I was wondering who they commissioned to put together such a fine piece of art and at what cost to the city. Maybe we should just hang those up around the city to show the rats they are unwelcome here.

Who cares about the slogan or the logo? At least the city is doing something about this problem that has been ignored for far too long.

Doing what? They can't even get people to clean their sidewalks of ice and snow...

Never mind keep their trash clean.

Speaking of that.. what the hell was up with the trash being picked up late all week long? I know there was snow, but it was picked up in other locations late when there was no snow.

Haven't you seen the inspectors from -- I think -- Griggs and Browne? I live on Seabury St. and my neighbor got a letter from the city and the inspectors showed up telling him to clean up and that they were going to treat his property.

Maybe they are starting alphabetically from Z.

Here's a better idea for a Logo to get rid of the rats: A picture of Bob Correia's face in a red circle with a line through it, like the "No Smoking" signs. It could read "No Rats in City Hall"

I still think that after 30 years in Boston having this as your biggest achievement deserves a logo as well:


Wasn't the Herald Headline
