Cheers and Jeers, Aug. 26

Cheers to all the firefighters and first responders. And nothing less than the deepest respect for the lives of these brave public servants taken recently by the fires that plague our state.

Jeers to the watering holes which allow loud, boisterous, non-beer drinking kid customers with large brightly colored play toys to be more important than paying adult customers who are actually seeking a brief refuge from their own kids and who really don’t want to watch and parent other people’s kids because their parents are drinking beer and not parenting their own kids.

Cheers to the Gig Harbor watering holes that offer parents the option to bring their quiet, well-behaved and supervised kids into an adult space.
