RAVE To the person who hit my car while I was at work and left a note with their contact info, and to the many people who offered to help move my car out of the street before the tow truck arrived. What could have been such an upsetting experience turned out instead to represent kindness, integrity and honesty.

RANT to SIFF snobs who tried to cut in line in front of me after I got up early to stand in line for a good seat. They said, “It’s tradition.” Bull. Go to the back of the line.
