Our Own Appetite


                        ''We will allow the rats to eat the fish'' Proctor said ''believe me when I tell you, that as far as I'm concerned the rats are welcome to that fish, because it stinks. Besides, rats have to eat. We have work for those rats to do and we want them nice and healthy and ready to run fast when we light them off, so we will transcend our own appetite for the fish and let them eat it''.


George V. Higgins
The Rat on Fire
1970
