I absolutely agree with the comments on the rust that accumulates on cars in Hawaii; the locals refer to that "color" as "Hawaiian bronze." Military families that got orders to Hawaii mostly took with them whatever car (or two) they wanted to get rid of soon, and when they were transferred out, dumped them on the Hawaiian market for much more than they could have on the mainland.

There has been much of a to-do about the US Senate's "reconciliation" process as it might be applied to Obamacare. Does anyone else think that elected officials playing parliamentarian games are the sleaziest people on the face of the earth? I mean... at least a hooker will tell you up... Continue reading
