RAVE To the woman who regularly paints out spray paint graffiti on the long wall near St. Mark’s Cathedral. She lives in the area and has taken it on herself to do it, with the homeowner’s permission. The wall gets hit fairly often, and she always cleans it up promptly. She deserves a “Good Citizen” award.
RANT To the pedestrians who walk against the “don’t walk” signal when it’s constant or flashing. If you haven’t started before “don’t walk” starts, don’t; you’re blocking the window of opportunity for cars to turn right on a red light. The flashing signal is for people already crossing, advising them how many seconds they have to get out of the crosswalk.
