RAVE To the Washington State Patrol trooper who rescued a mentally ill woman having a psychotic episode in the middle of James Street. Bystanders called Seattle police, but they hadn’t arrived so we flagged down the trooper’s car on Seventh Avenue. He saved the woman from being run down by cars entering the freeway.
RANT To the truck driver roaring around me at about 40 mph in the Lower Woodland Park lot. I was driving slowly because there were a lot of kids going to and from cars in the lot — his dangerous driving through it could have led to a tragedy. I’m glad it didn’t.
