RANT to big corporate rip-offs. For instance, I bought a pound of bacon the other day, a well known brand at $5.99 a pound, and when I opened it up the bacon was the fattest I think I have ever purchased. Easily nine-tenths of the product was fat. Where’s the government oversight on consumer protection? Stop wasting time on the 18-cent gas tax and do something about the rip-offs by big corporations on consumers.

RANT AND RAVE Rave to all the Leschi neighbors who do not block alleys, or sidewalks, with their cars or trucks. This is against the law. Rant to those who do block alleys, or sidewalks. These are public areas, not EVER to be blocked unless it is an emergency vehicle! Next time, many of us will call and report license plate numbers.
