A rat's gotta eat! The great depression was tough on everyone..
Did Rutherford Really Have Rat Bites On His Body? Dead For Three Days Before Found?
I agree, the sordid rumors and speculation are not as glorious and news worthy as the plain truth. Newspapers sell more with Man Eaten By Rats Alive! Thank's you three, I lived in Seattle for a time and some, it was not uncommon for older Witnesses to die alone in rest homes, so past experience tried to create this possibility in my mind. I hope Ruthernut was not alone, even if he was prone to booze and women. "Prohobition" was his magazine to explain away sin, he had crazy ideas.
