Daily Rant&Rave: Thanksgiving: Macklemore is cool, taxi uncool

RAVE To Macklemore for graciously posing for pictures with several teenage fans, including my granddaughter, on the ferry to Whidbey Island on Thanksgiving day. He gave them a memory for a lifetime.

RANT To the cab company who stranded a tearful 89-year-old grandmother on Thanksgiving. Our family made reservations to have my wheelchair-bound mother-in-law driven to our home for Thanksgiving dinner. After a two-hour wait and a string of excuses and promises, the dispatcher said that cabdrivers may pick and choose which fares they wish to take, and that she was out of luck.
