Stating the Obvious
It’s come to my attention by way of observation at my own house over the years that all manner of little varmits come out of the woodwork and the surrounding landscape for two things – Food and Water. Have a leak or an open food source? You will find a company of creatures in line for the goods.
In government, the food and water are called by other names: Money and Control.
Please, never leave either unattended.
