What a glorious spring week! Each afternoon, the roads of Westport are filled with walkers, joggers, bikers…
…and parents waiting in their cars, for the bus to disgorge their kids from school.
I’m not talking 1 or 2 moms (or dads). I mean battalions, all sitting inside their (idling) cars as if the sun would give them swine flu.
People, please: Walk to the bus stop. Then walk “all the way home” with your kid. Point out some birds and flowers. Chat. Amble.
Or — call me crazy — hang around the house, and let your kid walk home alone. Maybe with a friend?
Nah. This is Westport. Who knows what dangers lurk between the bus stop and #2 (Insert Your Name Here) Lane?
