Rave: Good people with great attitudes.
Rant: Bad people who only see the negative in everything that touches them.
Rave: Thanksgiving and Christmas (or any favorite holiday).
Rant: The kidnapping of Christmas by religious and secular groups who would rather fight than celebrate.
Rave: The part of my family that shares love.
Rant: The part of my family that would rather be right than loving.
Rave: Writing that is simple, easy to understand and to digest, and touches me.
Rant: Writing that is about the author, not the reader, and makes an effort to tell us how smart it is.
Rave: Businesses that are people-focused.
Rant: Businesses that are ego-driven and products- and services-driven (not customer service but sold services).
Rave: Businesses that embrace engagement and are experiential at their core.
Rant: Businesses that are insular and never see a need to get outside themselves.
Rave: Government that is about freedom.
Rant: Government that is about itself.
Rave: Good health.
Rant: Bad health.
Rave: Drivers who drive like me.
Rant: Drivers who don't.
Rave: Animal lovers.
Rant: Animal haters.
Your turn. Oh, and happy holidays, no matter the form in which they come.
