Readers rave about free sandwiches, rant about no help to jump car battery.

RAVE To Jack, the kind soul who paid for yummy pastrami sandwiches for my companion and me. He didn’t want the restaurant owner to reveal what he’d done until he’d left, when we went to pay and discovered he already had. His generous gesture was greatly appreciated!

RANT To the people who wouldn’t help me jump my car battery while waiting in the cellphone lot at Sea-Tac Airport. I heard “not today,” “I’d rather not,” and my personal favorite, “ I have a special battery and it won’t work.” What has happened to my hometown?
