RAVE To the beautiful young family on the bus, with the father’s comical and imaginative reading of story books to his adorable children. You all generated a lot of love around you. I got off that bus smiling ear to ear. Parents, you’re doin’ it right!

RANT To the parents of the shrieking toddler at a nice restaurant, not a fast food or family restaurant catering to people with small kids. There were two parents, couldn’t one of them take her outside during her screaming temper tantrum? But no, these folks were too inconsiderate or deaf for that. Didn’t they stop to consider how many meals they ruined with their rudeness?
