Hero & Zero

Hero
Steven, bound and determined to help a woman with car trouble, hopped a fence, among other things, to accomplish his mission. It began when he saw a woman driving on 101 southbound in Marin City with a flat tire. As he pulled up next to her on the freeway, he delivered the bad news. She exited 101 onto the Marin City off-ramp to call AAA. Many a man would keep on going, figuring he’d done his duty, but not Steven. This fine gentleman drove to the Gateway Shopping Center parking lot and climbed over the fence to check on the woman and her broken-down car (quite an achievement, considering he was sporting house slippers on his tootsies). When he discovered AAA couldn’t respond for approximately 30 minutes and the woman had an appointment, he rolled up his sleeves and changed her tire in less than 10. A big shout out to Steven for his kind deed, and thanks to the Marin County Sheriff’s Department for sharing his story.
Zero
Human excrement piled up at Point Reyes National Seashore due to Trump’s stubborn stance on reopening the federal government (see Upfront, Jan. 15). The bathrooms weren’t serviced and the toilets overflowed—but what cretins decided that the once pristine park made a suitable dumping ground? Thanks to party poopers, entire sections of the park were closed. Conditions became so disgusting that the Marin County Board of Supervisors voted to pay for the clean-up and maintain the bathrooms for two weeks. With a $1,000 price tag, the supes requested indemnification from the National Park Service and were promptly turned down. Grrrr.
