Daily Rant&Rave: Tire changer saves the day

RAVE After a flat tire on Interstate 90 with a narrow shoulder next to 70 mph traffic, a Subaru pulled over while we old folks were still looking for the phone number for our roadside assistance. The driver popped out and asked if he could change the tire for us. Ten minutes later it was done and we were on our way. Thank you to John, our knight in shining armor, for restoring our faith in our fellow man.

RANT To the jerk who stole the pump off my bicycle while it was locked up on the UW campus. If you’re a cyclist, I hope you have a flat every day for the rest of your riding days!
