What the Washington Post doesn’t know about Hawaii

What the Washington Post Doesn’t Know About Hawaii

The Washington Post has come up with one of its usual inside-the-Beltway, “we asked everyone at our cocktail party” articles about who will take Senator Daniel Inouye’s place.

In which the NYT attempts to “call” Hawaii

I grew up regarding the New York Times as the “paper of record,” so it surprised me both as it slid into the sewer and as I discovered that, if it was covering a story I actually knew anything about, it was frequently, well, shall we say, “less than accurate.”

Steal this . . . letter

I just wrote the following to my two US Senators, Democratic tools Inouye & Akaka, via their web sites.  The site for my Dem. representative was down because of server issues. As I’ve recommended before re writing to Congress, this is SHORT. If anyone finds any of the language herein
