Remember when the "Survivor" TV series went to Palau and its contestants had to compete with one another for prizes amid pestilence and filth and disease and slime and stink and bugs and rodents and privation?
Shoot, it doesn't hold a candle in entertainment value to this:
Health expert condemns park ratsThe contestants aren't required to wash their hands? At least those living in the jungles of Palua had to maintain certain standards of civilization.

Close this pigpen!
Filth-ridden Zuccotti Park is a breeding ground for bacterial infection loaded with potential health-code violations that pose a major risk to the public, an expert who inspected the area warned.
“It’s like Walmart for rats,’’ Wayne Yon, an expert on city health regulations, said yesterday.
“There’s a lack of sanitation, a lack of controls for hot and cold water,” Yon said. He saw at least 15 violations of the city’s health code -- the type that would easily shut down a food establishment.
He noted the lack of lavatory facilities, as neighbors repeatedly complain about protesters defecating in the area and the stench of urine.
Yon also pointed to unsanitary conditions in wash bins for cleaning food utensils.
“It looks extraordinarily dirty, and [the bin] should be changed once it starts to get dirty,” said Yon, who works for EHA Consulting Group Inc. Then he pointed to a pigeon in a tree right above where the protesters were washing dishes.
“There’s no overhead coverings. Pigeons are basically vermin,” Yon said.
He said there’s inadequate hand washing, the No. 1 culprit for food-borne illnesses in restaurants. [link]
I wonder if they'll televise the plague that is soon to hit Zucotti Park. In living color.
I'm really getting into this.
I watched a small part of ABC's "Pan Am" not long ago. All I can say is, thank God for "Occupy Wall Street."
