Readers rave about bus driver’s help, rant about speeding drivers

RAVE For the Metro driver who got out of the bus at the stop to call down the block to me when she noticed I’d dropped my hand-knitted mitten on my way off the bus. I was so grateful for her observation, her willingness to make sure she got my attention, and to have my favorite mitten returned; I’d have missed it for sure. When I told her “You’re amazing!” she smiled and replied, “I know.” I hope she does!

RANT To the reckless, speeding drivers on Seward Park Avenue South who seem to think stopping for pedestrians in crosswalks is optional. Are you trying to commit vehicular manslaughter? Every time I make it across with my kids I thank God for letting us live another day.
