RAVE to the Seattle Municipal Court for the thoughtful and orderly way they processed and informed 80 citizens recently called for jury duty. As one of the people in this group, I was very appreciative of the process put in place to orient and prepare us for a potential week of waiting, and/or selection for jury duty. It’s heartening as a citizen to witness firsthand the work that goes into assuring that an accused person gets their right to a fair trial.

RANT AND RAVE Rant to radio stations that are already playing Christmas music. It was much better when we could enjoy the overlooked Thanksgiving season of gratitude without excessive early focus on Christmas. Rave to the stations who at least wait until the day after Thanksgiving to play Christmas songs.
