RAVE To the community groups who put monkeys made of neon lights in windows of businesses and on buildings on Phinney Avenue and Greenwood Avenue to brighten up the neighborhood during the short winter days.
RANT To people setting off fireworks to celebrate the New Year, beginning several hours early, then staccato explosions sporadically throughout the night. Shellshocked vets are trying to sleep and I really don’t need anymore flashbacks, even on New Year’s Eve. Happy New Year to you too.
