RAVE To Bridgette Hempstead, who sang the national anthem at Sunday’s Seahawks game. I don’t consider myself a particularly patriotic person, but her spirit and love of country washed over me. It was a joyful and wonderful performance.
RANT To the cellphone lot at SeaTac Airport that has one exit and streams of traffic coming at it from five directions with no traffic control other than the goodwill of fellow drivers. On a recent weekend I was delayed for 45 minutes trying to get out, not moving, until the police eventually showed up to straighten things out. The designers of that lot failed Traffic Control 101, big time.
