Daily Rant&Rave: Thanks for saving a life

RAVE To the woman who saved a man’s life on the street in downtown Seattle. While I was waiting for a bus I saw a man was on the ground who was blue. Many people whose intentions were obviously good were trying to revive him without success. Suddenly a woman showed up, began compressions, and by the time the medics arrived, he was breathing again. She walked off quickly without a word.

RANT To the jogger who almost knocked me down while I was putting my garbage out. I yelled after him, “You almost hit me.” He turned around and said “So what, if you had been more aware of your surroundings you would have moved.” What a nasty, entitled person.
