Daily Rant&Rave: No smoking

RAVE To the kind people who helped me when my SUV quit completely, leaving me stranded near Highway 99 during rush hour. Three young men walking by used muscle power to push my vehicle up the hill, over the curb, into a safe spot so I wouldn’t be blocking traffic, and while I was on the phone to a tow-truck company, three women separately got out of their cars to ask if I was OK or needed help. I’m sorry to have held up traffic, but energized by these kindhearted people who were in my life at the right time.

RANT To folks who smoke in, or near, bus shelters. Take a look around: Notice the many signs prohibiting your behavior. Notice the people standing in the rain to avoid your foul-smelling, cancer-causing pollution. Be nice. Be a good neighbor. Share the bus shelter we all pay for with our taxes.
