Feedback. I like it. Whether it's constructive criticism or just disagreement, I appreciate it. That's why we ask for it when I present my daily commentary each day.
Several years ago I was critical of the good folks in Rouleau for not being more pro-active in promoting the fact they were "Dog River", the home of the beloved television sitcom "Corner Gas". I took a call that day from someone who was a little angry. He told me some things I didn't know, informing me they'd been trying but ran into legal difficulties too numerous to mention. I appreciated that call just like the e-mail I received days ago from Bruce.
He listened to the commentary about pedestrians who wave you through after you've stopped for them at crosswalks. I find it very irritating.
Bruce pointed out that "generally, it's older people at crossings who will wave a driver through...these people", he said, "tend to move slowly and have all the time in the world to cross an intersection. Guess what? They are only being courteous."
Good point, Bruce. Good point.
