    This pretty much tells me 1) maybe the city should think about removing weeds and start putting real, rainwater-absorbing landscaping in big ugly lots like this, or otherwise just sell off the land; 2) cat-boarding services should properly separate refuse and keep their bins locked, or otherwise Recology should report them and they should face fines from the city.

    This does not tell me that ‘dag nabbit, that subway project is responsible for a rat infestation!’ Sheesh. Great reporting as always, Chron.

    I might try to swing by that.
