Readers rant about neighbor's yard, rave about putting out I-90 brush fire

RANT So you move into an old, established Seattle neighborhood  and pay over a million bucks for your house, but you can’t afford to have someone mow your grass?  It looks terrible.  You should be ashamed, and I truly wish you weren’t my neighbor.

RAVE To my brother, his family and people in other cars who stopped along I-90 to help put out a potentially devastating brush fire last weekend. Everyone worked together using blankets, water bottles and even a fire extinguisher to put the fire out before it spread and caused serious damage.
