Readers rave about grocery-store generosity, rant about state fees for nurse’s license.

RAVE To Andy, a young man behind me in the checkout line who paid for my groceries because I’d forgotten my debit card. What a startling act of generosity. He said to pay it forward, and I already have. Thanks again, Andy!

RANT To the Washington State Department of Health for the fees to renew my license as a nurse, not only a mandatory renewal fee of $76, but also a $2 “convenience” fee, a $5 Center for Nursing Surcharge fee and a $16 fee to pay for a website, so my $76 license is now a mandatory $99 renewal. That’s gouging Washington state nurses; what a racket.
