Rat Packs

Bacall, Bogart, and Monroe

ALL:
~~
Our Rat’s desires.
~~
 
Consider, darlings:
~~
What do you really want the most in life?
~~
 
The question is put on remembering today an old, blue movie, remember them, in which the girl made what I must confess to be a compelling disquisition as to why strawberries were her favorite thing.
As with the male lead in the movie, I said “WOW!!” to the graphic disquisition on strawberries but then went quickly on to say: “that sounds fantastic but strawberries are not my favorite thing.”
~~
 
This is a family program, so we’ll leave the film criticism and review at the door here for now and instead ask this question of the audience:
~~
 
“If you could have ALL of whatever you most desire, what would that be?”
~~
 
Most would say the answer to that would vary man to man and maybe they’d be right about that, but we ask:
~~
What about RATS?
~~
 
Yes, RATS.
~~
 
Laboratory type RATS.
~~
 
See, laboratory type rats are given the choice of all the wondrous things of this earth and they choose:
~~
One.
~~
One.
~~
ONE.
~~
Could rats be on to something we have ourselves overlooked since the Garden Herself?
~~
 
Specifically, given that Rats can choose anything, in a controlled, laboratory environment, what do Rats choose?
~~
 
Money?
~~
 
Nope.
~~
 
The Oval Office?
~~
 
That might be a fit subject for a different sort of article altogether, but for our purposes here:
~~
NO.
~~
 
Sports heroics?
~~
 
Nah.
Peter Lorre and Humphrey Bogart - The Maltese Falcon
Cigarettes?
~~
 
No.
~~
Coffee?
~~
Nope.
~~
 
Booze?
Ava & Frank
Wrong again.
~~
 
Heroin?
No, Sir!!
~~
 
All the sex with all the pretty girls in the entire world from now until the second coming?
~~
 
No, mam.
~~
 
Cocaine so pure and raw it cuts the nose and burns the throat on ingestion?
~~
 
Close, very close, …but, still:
~~
NO.
~~
 
So, what do rats choose over and above all else in their cage, in which, all the temptations of the flesh are present?
~~
To be sure, rats COULD become addicted to all the things listed here and to many others, I am sure, but what DO rats choose to become addicted to, given free choice?
~~
 
To what sweet solace do rats turn, over and over again, until they kill themselves in their gluttony?
~~
 
It’s a scientific fact.
~~
Proven over and over.
~~
 
Rats, given all options listed and likely many others not here listed tonight, above all else, scamper to:

      Saint Jane Frances de Chantal Catholic parochial school, called, by anyone of any background, simply: “Chan~al,” a place where, of an autumn day in 1957, school,  for me,  began and ended in the first convening of the first grade in which a tiny nun, one Sister Dom Bosco, appeared before me, just behind the window appearing at far left of this photograph, and piped out this: “I may be small, but so then, is the Atom Bomb.”
      ~~
      My determination to escape school commenced immediately on hearing about this Atom Bomb business and took 16 dicey and arduous years to finally accomplish.~~

      “Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he’s the only one who’s sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own.”~~
