Readers rave about accident help, rant about winter-recreation parking-lot shortage.

RAVE To Steve and Ann, who witnessed an accident I was involved in and offered to help. Ann got ice packs from her home, and Steve drove me all the way from Seattle to the Mukilteo ferry so I could get home. When I asked him why, he said it was his mitzvah, a Yiddish word that means doing a good deed without expecting anything in return. What a mitzvah that was; thanks, Steve!

RANT To Stevens Pass resorts for using the Nordic ski area parking lot as overflow parking for alpine skiers. Last weekend the Nordic lot was full and closed 90 minutes after the Nordic Center opened, preventing cross-country skiers and snowshoers from parking to access NFS land for recreation.
