This is just begging for a fight with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

According to a press release from the Office of the Mayor of NYC, the city is seeking a Director of Rodent Mitigation. The Mayor's office described their ideal candidate as:

"Highly motivated and somewhat bloodthirsty, determined to look at all solutions from various angles, including improving operational efficiency, data collection, technology innovation, trash management, and wholesale slaughter." 

In adition to those characteristics they expect the Director of Rodent Mitigation to have a "swashbuckling attitude, crafty humor, and general aura of badassery." If you haven't turned away yet, you are wondering, what does it pay? The answer is eye-opening, the rat assassin would make between $120,000 and $170,000 per year.

To be truly qualified for the job you'll also need:

  • New York City residency (at least 3 months prior to application)
  • Bachelor's Degree
  • Project Management Experience
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint
  • New York City or State Government Experience
  • "A virulent vehemence for vermin"

What's the catch? Other than being responsible for the murder of millions of tiny souls, you'll likely have to deal with animal rights groups, and that is no small task. If this sounds like your gig, apply here.

Drone Captures Crystal Clear Images of Brookfield From High Above

While cruising Youtube recently I found a video that captured my attention, drone footage from high above Brookfield, CT. The video happened to be of a section of Brookfield right above the radio station I've been worked at for 21 years, I-95.

Some of Danbury + Brookfield's Best Churro Spots

A churro is a fried dough dessert found in Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. When covered in cinnamon and dipped in Dulce De Leche, it's one of my favorites. The question with anything worth having is, how far do I have to go to get it? If you live in Danbury or Brookfield, you are not going far at all. And, I'd put our churros in Danbury + Brookfield's up against any churro you can get anywhere. These are some of Danbury + Brookfield's Best Churro Spots.
