RANT To the four Seattle police officers having lunch at a restaurant with their two police cruisers parked in 15-minute-only spaces (there was plenty of parking available in regular spots) and leaving one of the vehicle’s engine running the entire time, a blatant disregard for rules or common sense.

RAVE To the young gentleman who caught up with me to bring me the birthday card for my six-year-old grandson that I’d left behind at the Safeway check out counter after I’d been shopping at 12:30 a.m. It was the only time I could shop, after my grandkids and sick husband had fallen asleep and my son and daughter-in-law were watching them.
