I like Everyday People so much. What a good idea. I cut the articles out and place them in a folder. But Monday's (May 9), the one about Diane Schilling goes on my refrigerator door.
Whenever I read it I feel like a whiny old wimp. Strong, young people give me backbone.
Good luck with that attitude
This letter is regarding an incident that occurred Saturday, May 7. My friend and I were traveling north of Little Falls on 371 where the road becomes two lanes. We were in the right hand lane, which is the legal lane, the left lane even merges down to the right lane. A black Dodge pickup was swiftly approaching in the left lane and I guess he was in a terrible hurry for he insisted on passing in the left lane even though there was barely inches between our vehicles because by the time he got even with my car he was at the point where the left lane had almost completely ended.
At that point I called the Brainerd area State Patrol to report the dangerous driver and I was told by the officer who answered that the left lane was the dominant lane and that the right lane merged. To the officer who answered my call Saturday. You need to learn the roads in your territory or you need to listen to what people are saying to you so you can be of assistance. That's your job. I know you didn't check out this dangerous driver because you were so insistent that you were correct and I was wrong. To the driver of the black Dodge pickup who almost ran the silver Malibu off the road, you are not the biggest vehicle on the road and someday you may come up against a much larger vehicle than you, whose driver has the same attitude that you do. Good luck with that. you know what they say, "What goes around comes around." Renee Brand
