OK, maybe I exaggerate, but  how could I avoid it given the lead in the Washington Examiner‘s story today:

“Arlington health inspectors have cited all but one of the Pentagon City Mall’s roughly 30 eateries for critical health violations, and recent rodent and cockroach sightings have diners’ stomachs churning.”

This reminds Y&H of 2007, when Inside Edition went deep undercover and blew the lid off rats in Adams Morgan. Last I heard, no one died from the exposure.
