RAVE to all of the Seattle public high school students’ parents who have given cars to their children so they can be independent young people who transport themselves to and from school, work, global environmental protests, etc., giving themselves a break and their kids some freedom. Public buses and trains don’t go everywhere needed and school buses are unreliable.

RANT to all the people who think it’s fine to put their elbow into my ribs while looking at their phone or laptop during my long bus ride home. I know your texting is so important but it’s not OK. Same for the rest of me. Please keep all your body parts off mine.
