RAVE For Jim Page on the 40th anniversary of the Busker’s Ordinance. When I was at the UW in the 1970s, I always looked forward to his impromptu performances on campus. He brightened my days with his running commentary and incorporating the passers-by into his lyrics.
RANT To the slobby man at the Washington State Fair last weekend wearing a T-shirt with a crude message in large letters using the f-word twice, and to the security people at the gate who let him enter the fairgrounds. I know there’s no dress code at the fair but that shirt was way over the line. There really is no bottom to the barrel; it just keeps going.
