Rant&Rave: What part of ‘toxic’ don’t you understand, Mom?

RAVE For a spectacular jazz performance by a group of eighth-grade students from Eckstein Middle School, the delightful highlight of our recent visit to the Boats Afloat Show on Lake Union.

RANT To the mom at Green Lake watching two young girls swim 20 feet away from the “NO SWIMMING” (due to toxic algae) sign! When we asked her if she had seen the warning sign, her snippy reply was: “It’s OK if you don’t see any algae where you are.” We hope those girls are OK.
