Daily Rant&Rave: Tickets saved us from tantrums

RAVE To the man who gave four free tickets to our family at the Tacoma Rainiers game after we made it to the box office and found the game sold out. After trudging half a mile with two 3-year-olds who were beyond excited to see the game, your kind gesture saved us all from terrible disappointment!

RANT To the text-reading pedestrian who stepped off the curb against the light downtown during peak early-morning traffic, forcing a bicyclist, trying to avoid her, to crash. While the bicyclist lay on the ground, the pedestrian calmly stepped over her and continued on her way. A rave to the police who called the aid car and to Harborview for knitting a badly broken wrist back together.
