RANT to the shortage of veterinarians and emergency animal services. When my dog became critically ill, there was no availability of emergency services in King County (someone suggested to drive to Mount Vernon). By the time a house call vet could come the next morning all we could do was euthanize my baby. Why is there only one veterinary medical school in the whole state?

RAVE to the companies that have plantings on their roof. It is a beautiful and healthy way to help the environment. They are all over in Europe and it would be beneficial and attractive to have more here, and on sides of buildings as well.

RANT to all those companies that have been using the “unusually high call volume” excuse for years just to cut back on customer service. Many add insult to injury with “your call is very important to us.”
