Yes, rats on the front page of the paper, and in a major video report, of the Wall Street Journal!
Karen Borga's seven adopted lab rats: Sevenee, Levenee, Eight, Tennie, Twentefour, Therdifour, and Therdyeight, named after their lab numbers, are very special rats.
Three of them, along with Karen, are stars in the Wall Street Journal, Front Page video, May 15, 2009, entitled, “One Woman's Fight for Rodent Rights”, by Dionne Searcey, which highlights Amber Alliger's work “to shed prejudices against rats”.

Karen, Amber, and the Number Kids are also featured in an article on the front page of the hardcopy Wall Street Journal which seeks to expose the current inadequate care standards for laboratory research rats. The newspaper intices its readers with a now-famous caption, “Karen Borga Has Something Up Her Sleeve.” The full narrative is on-line as a Front Page Wall Street Journal article, May 16, 2009, entitled, “Their Calling Is Defending Rats, Yet These Folks Aren't Lawyers”.
And here it is!
