Daily Rant & Rave: When mom and baby needed help, where were you?

RAVE To all of the wonderful volunteer dads out there giving their time and expertise to the youth football teams that recently began practices. It takes a special and dedicated person to give up many hours a week to coach our children for the next three months. May the joy of seeing our young athletes grow in skill and emotional development and become a unified team be your reward!

RANT To the hundreds of drivers that drove by a stalled car on the Ballard Bridge and didn’t stop to help. The woman’s car battery was dead and her 4-month-old son was getting very hot. Traffic was terrible; any or all of you could have stopped to help. Seattle is better than that.
