Daily Rant & Rave: Stop the early fireworks, please

RAVE To the man in a pink shirt who chased down the man who’d snatched my bag downtown and got everything back to me. He reacted so quickly and acted like it wasn’t a big deal afterward. I’m so glad he wasn’t hurt. And huge rave to the Coast Guard man who kept me company such a long time while waiting for the police that he became a new friend.

RANT To my neighbors who’ve already been shooting fireworks for several days. Fireworks are legal in our neighborhood only on July 4, and many of your neighbors have children and pets who are being disturbed by your illegal behavior.
