Only in the Seattle area. A driver gives a hearty rave to the cop who stopped her for speeding. And a volunteer litter picker-upper “returns” some “lost items.”

“A rave to the kind man who paid my daughter’s bus fare when she couldn’t find her wallet on her way to work in Bellevue Nov. 17. And shame on the driver who wouldn’t let her off the bus until her fare was paid.”

“This is a huge, obnoxious, loud, polluting rant for Gray Line for leaving its buses on high idle for two to three hours per day outside the Warwick Hotel. And that’s after countless e-mails asking them to respect the ‘Do Not Idle’ sign. May a thousand camels pee in your buses!”

“I want to commend the Kirkland policeman who stopped me for speeding. It was dark and raining buckets, but he smiled and [agreed] to move to a parking lot ahead where he wouldn’t get splashed (or hit!) by passing cars. He gave me a warning, which was most appreciated, not only because of the fine, but because I really did need to relax and slow down.”

What is wrong with people that think they can go to a store and intimidate others by their loud, obnoxious actions?”
