Very nice article! (“30 Years on Maui,” Sept. 6, 2007). Lisa Joslin, still a resident of Maui and daughter of Tony Habib passed this on to us via email. Tony Habib is my husband and my name is DJ. We left Maui nearly six years ago after we lost our beautiful beachfront restaurant “Carellis on the Beach.” Maui will forever remain in our hearts. Tony still reminisces about the good ole days in Wailuku at La Familia. I didn’t know him then. I met him when Carellis first opened. Anyway, that was a great article and it really tickled Tony to read about the old La Familia. If you ever get to Cabo, look us up. ;) -Debra (DJ) Endy-Habib, Villas de Oro

I do this to all the papers because there is no real journalism in the state. -Kurt Butler, via hand-written note written on a copy of the Maui Police Department recruiting advertisement that ran in the Sept. 27, 2007 issue of Maui Time.

ehbrah@mauitime.com I can’t believe I work so hard and so many long hours for assholes like you. Sorry that you think this resort is getting too “colorful” for your taste. This is Hawai‘i, brah, and it’s all the cultures that make it so. The comment you made about my daughter still leaves a bad taste in my mouth—she’s hapa and beautiful and proud of it. If I did not work for people like you I would have put your head under the water in your own pool, the one you told my boss was a shrine. Earth to fake tan boy: it’s just a fountain. Oh, and your pec implants look like shit. And when you prance around here saying “howzit,” you actually make me ill. Even those drunk girls you tried to hook up with could tell they needed to get the hell away from you. Even better was the time you fell asleep in your car in the handicapped parking zone because you were so drunk from playing golf earlier that day. Please do yourself and the rest of the island a favor and just go back to the mainland.

‘REVIEW AND COMMENT’ I’m thinking maybe we ought to just permanently engrave Tesoro’s name in the top slot. I mean, there aren’t many corporations out there that have a state’s Public Utilities Commission (PUC) on their side. There are few better illustrations of this than a letter Poinography! blogger Doug White dug up from a recent public records request asking for all those nifty documents state law now requires oil companies to give up explaining how they set gasoline prices. According to one letter from Tesoro to the PUC dated May 25 of this year and posted to the blog on Sept. 25, Tesoro is really nervous about the public having access to such sensitive information—so much so that company officials want to “review and comment” on everything the PUC generates on this before it gets sent to us citizens/gas consuming slobs. White’s already asked the PUC whether they gave the company this special access, and even though no answer was available by press time, it’s hard to imagine they turned down the request.

THE POWER OF EUPHEMISMS And Hawaiian Telcom zooms out of the cellar this week and rockets at the speed of light to ninth place after Michael Fry, the company’s Senior Internet Product Manager, correctly used at least seven separate corporate euphemisms to describe how high-speed Internet subscribers can now take advantage of special free wi-fi hot spots located statewide. “Mobility is a highly desired element for our high-speed customers,” Fry said in the Sept. 26 Honolulu Advertiser. “This enhancement provides them with the freedom and flexibility to connect to the Internet when they’re out on the go. It also increases the value of our service and strengthens customer loyalty.” MTW

ROBREPORT

BY ROB PARSONS ROBPARSONS@EARTHLINK.NET

Down on Patrick’s Farm How one Peahi farmer grows food for Maui’s people For the last eight years Patrick Moser has managed a three-acre farm near the rural confluence known as Five Corners in the Peahi region of Haiku. Each Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, his loyal customers convene to buy his vegetables, herbs and free-range chicken eggs. While recent discussions over transient vacation rentals have underscored the economic difficulties of making ends meet for local agricultural operations, Moser’s Biodynamic Farm is a shining example of a small, successful working farm. A network of similar farm operations dotting the island would surely go a long way towards our sustainability and food security. In my early years on Maui, I traveled back to southwestern Wisconsin each year to work on my brother’s certified organic vegetable farm. He was the best grower I’d ever seen, and transformed the rich bottomland soil in a valley that also featured a trout stream and spring-fed pond into a productive truck garden farm. We sold truckloads of vegetables to local grocers, but mainly at the farmers market in downtown Madison, where 5,000 to 10,000 people would shop each Saturday morning. One year I earned enough to purchase a 10-horsepower roto-tiller and ship it back to Maui. For several years I offered custom roto-tilling, helping people to break ground and start their own gardens. Though I knew about organic farming, and the rigors involved, I knew little about biodynamic methods. Rudolf Steiner, best known as founder of the Waldorf schooling methods, originated Biodynamic Farming in 1924. One of the basic principles of the non-chemical farming method is viewing the Earth as a self-sustaining organism, where growth, digestion, decomposition and the cosmic rhythms of the seasons all play their part. The vitality of plants is intrinsically related to the health of the soil, and composting is one of the fundamental efforts. Human health depends on the health of the food we consume, and thus biodynamic farming strives for quality over quantity. This is a key precept that agri-business conglomerates have overlooked in the current global efforts to feed the planet’s six billion-plus inhabitants. “Naturally occurring plant and animal materials are combined in specif-

OCTOBER 4, 2007

LC Watch An Apology Heard a rumor a few days ago that a local club got into trouble with the LC over a story we’d recently run. I found this particularly distasteful—not so much that a club would get into trouble (that happens often enough) but that the county Liquor Control department was using Maui Time Weekly (of all papers) as a tip sheet. The place was Tip Ups Tavern and Grill, and the story was our Sept. 13 feature “Booty Money,” in which writer Heidi King explained how she made more money at a dance contest held there than she did during a seven-hour server shift at a local resort. “We talked about it [the story],” LC Director Franklyn Silva told me. “I looked at it.” But Silva denied Tip Ups was getting into any trouble. “No, no trouble,” he said. “Nobody’s in trouble. No violation—at least, nothing I’ve signed.”

Moser’s farm ic recipes in certain seasons of the year and then placed in compost piles,” states the biodynamics.com website. “These preparations bear concentrated forces within them and are used to organize the chaotic elements within the compost piles. When the process is complete, the resulting preparations are medicines for the Earth which draw new life forces from the cosmos.” Today, biodynamics is a worldwide agricultural movement, with training, networking and certification opportunities. Patrick Moser grew up in Malibu, California, the son of a successful television writer/producer. In his teens, he spent a year working at a plant nursery before taking a job at the Ranch House restaurant in Ojai. His cooking job led to an offer to grow vegetables for the restaurant. After mentoring with Southern California compost guru Jack McAndrew, Moser traveled to Emerson College in England to start training in Biodynamics. There, he met his wife-to-be, Elizabeth Elliot, who was training to become a Waldorf teacher. They moved to Keanae in 1990, and were married soon thereafter. Moser set up a farming operation and supplied the Hana community with his produce for nine years, often from the Hana General Store’s parking lot. In 1999, “before the real estate prices went out of reach,” the Mosers found a small parcel on Peahi Road, built a house and began farming. The three-acre parcel was mostly flat—a great advantage. But like many Maui soils, his land was

MAUI TIME WEEKLY

extremely acidic, with a 4.5 ph (6.6-7.3 is considered neutral). But Moser plowed, limed, disked, roto-tilled and added compost. Within six months of buying the land he was harvesting crops. Today, his operation includes one cow in the back pasture, 15 ducks and 70 chickens. The animals consume and create materials for compost. The cow eats grass, “which grows really well in Hawai‘i.” Moser periodically drains the duck pond and cleans it out, fertilizing his banana trees. Scraps of all sorts go into the chicken yard. Gesturing towards several large feed bags, Moser claims that his farm “subsidizes the chickens,” which he considers a bit of a luxury. Apparently the term, see FARM, page 13

Silva said he and his department were “very interested” in the part of the story where King wrote about the other contestants—particularly, the first girl. “The first girl to take the floor was wasted,” King wrote. “Well, I hope she was wasted because she looked like a whore.” This is just dramatic description. Taken by itself, the first sentence would seem to be what LC investigators are always looking for: a straight-up identification of over-service, which can bring a bar owner anything from a $2,000fine to a suspended liquor license. But then there’s the little matter of that second sentence—the one that casts doubt on the initial observation by adding a second, somewhat scathing observation that casts doubt on the idea that the first girl in the contest was “wasted.” When pressed, Silva continued to deny that his department had written up Tip Ups, but then dropped the tiny caveat “so far.” Laughing, he added that, “we do pay attention to your paper.” Nothing may yet have happened to Tip Ups, but it’s all but certain LC investigators will be spending a lot more time watching the place. And for that, I apologize.

COCONUT WIRELESS THE WEEK IN REVIEW

BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO ANTHONY@MAUITIME.COM

operate while writing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). See, our good legislators are leaning heavily towards crafting a special exemption for HSF specifically allowing it to operate while they’re doing the EIS. Of course, legislators are saying they don’t want to do anything until after Cardoza issues his ruling—“We shouldn’t intervene and try to trump the court,” state Senator J. Kalani English told The Maui News. But hey— that’s state politics.

THURSDAY, Sept. 27 Oh yeah, I’ve been waiting for this one. Greg Kaufman, president and co-founder of the Pacific Whale Foundation (PWF) and an avowed enemy of all things Superferry, found himself getting grilled on the stand today in Cardoza’s courtroom. The Superferry attorneys were trying to point out that their fast ferry poses an “incremental” threat to humpback whales—far less than that posed by whale watching boats like those sent out by PWF. I mean, it wasn’t that long ago (Mar. 9, 2006, to be exact) that the PWF boat Ocean Spirit hit a whale calf in South Maui waters. But hey—that’s whale watching.

WEDNESDAY, Sept. 26 Forgive me for spending another week writing about Hawai`i Superferry, but watching so many state officials squirm like worms on a fishhook is just too delicious to pass up. See, today state Transportation Department Director Barry Fukunaga showed just how far the Lingle Administration has been willing to bend over to accommodate the Superferry. Testifying before Judge Joseph Cardoza on the $40 million in harbor improvements state officials conducted so the Superferry could use Hawaiian harbors, Fukunaga said Hawai‘i Superferry, Inc. has not paid any of that money back, no default notices have been issued to the company and the state hasn’t even billed the DOT for the work. What’s more, Fukunaga said “harbor users” would ultimately have to pay for the improvements if the Superferry can’t, even though no other “harbor users” plan to use the improvements. Of course, given the rumblings over in the state Legislature, it’s looking more likely that the Superferry will be able to start service soon—regardless of how Judge Cardoza rules on the issue of whether the Superferry can

FRIDAY, Sept. 28 And now for some really tremendous news! August was a great month for tourists in Hawai‘i, according to the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism! “Total visitor spending rose 4.2 percent to $1.2 billion in August,” reported today’s Honolulu Advertiser. “That’s an increase of $46.3 million compared with the same month last year.” Now these types of stories make for fairly interesting reads, until you start thinking about how August is always a good month because the tourist market around here is cyclical. By the same logic, September apparently really sucked business-wise for any local business dependent on tourist dollars, which is only about 99.78 percent of Maui’s local companies. But hey—that’s business journalism.

SATURDAY, Sept. 29 Not to be outdone on the issue of hitting whales, PWF honcho Greg Kaufman testified yesterday that while there have been 17 reported whale strikes since 2003, there haven’t actually been any reported humpback whale fatalities. “In the last three years in Hawai‘i, there has not been a fatal strike because it’s involving slow

Tale of the Whale boats moving at slow speeds,” Kaufman testified, according to today’s Maui News. Of course, Kaufman also pointed out, the Superferry is more than 300 feet long and travels at close to 40 knots, which is, well, pretty damn fast. “When you start looking at a vessel like Hawai‘i Superferry, in its class and size, it approaches 100 percent lethality,” Kaufman added. Or in other words, that translates as one strike, one kill. But hey—that’s just army sniper talk.

SUNDAY, Sept. 30 Big, big story in today’s Maui News about how a proposed water treatment plant that would go in behind Maui Community Correctional Center contains a small, small paragraph that explains a great deal about how government and business co-exist on Maui. See, the plant is a joint venture between the County of Maui and Alexander & Baldwin (A&B)—both would fund the plant, and, according to the paper, “share equally in the plant’s planned production of 9 million gallons of water per day.” But buried deep within the story is a terribly illuminating statement from county Water Director Jeff Eng on the “complications” that might stem from A&B’s involvement—through its subsidiary Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar (HC&S)—in the big Na Wai Eha contested case brought by Earthjustice, Hui O Na Wai `Eha and the state Office of Hawaiian Affairs that seeks to pull back a lot of water currently used by HC&S and Wailuku Water Co. “Eng said… he was assured [by A&B officials] that A&B has rights to the water and those rights would not be adversely affected,” reporter Brian Perry wrote. Well, isn’t that something: mighty A&B told Eng not to worry his pretty little head over the case—which

involves serious issues of land use, water rights and straight up justice for the Hawaiian people—and Eng apparently walked away perfectly content. But hey—I guess that’s just county government.

MONDAY, Oct. 1 Following up on his brilliance yesterday, Water Director Eng offers a bit of meteorological wisdom in today’s Maui News. “I am cautiously optimistic that weather conditions will continue to improve,” he says, insisting that the Central/South Maui water situation is “stable” even though residential water use isn’t dropping like water officials hoped. Could it be that Eng—and his boss, Mayor Charmaine Tavares—are really nervous that the county Board of Water Supply may call for mandatory 10 percent water restrictions on Central and South Maui residents at a time when big development projects are proceeding in those very same areas? But hey—that’s common sense.

TUESDAY, Oct. 2 Almost exactly four years to the day after we published our cover story “Maui or Bust: Koko the ‘talking’ gorilla is coming to paradise” (Oct. 9, 2003), a Gorilla Foundation spokesperson said in today’s Maui News that the organization still has no idea when Koko will move to that new “gorilla sanctuary” supposedly being built near Kapalua Airport. Nor would officials from Maui Land & Pineapple Co.—which donated the land for the sanctuary—even return the paper’s calls for comment. But hey— that’s just monkey business. Anthony Pignataro just couldn’t resist.

In August, a Roman Catholic bishop in the Netherlands, Martinus Muskens, suggested that Christians start referring to God as “Allah” as a way of relieving world tensions. “Allah is a very beautiful word... What does God care what we call him? It is our problem.” A priest in Rome said Muskens’ intentions were good, “but his theology needs a little fine-tuning.” Muskens said he spent eight years in Indonesia, where Catholic priests used “Allah” during Mass.

The Senate Finance Committee found in April that more than 450,000 federal employees and retirees owe back federal income taxes (totaling about $3 billion), including almost 5 percent of the employees and retirees of the U.S. Tax Court. And in August, the Palestinian Authority admitted that, after Hamas violently split from the government in mid-June, civil servants nonetheless failed to act quickly and thus in July continued to pay the salaries of about 3,000 Hamas security officers who were formerly PA employees, but who by then were fighting the PA.

PEOPLE WHO ARE MESSES

Gospel Baptist Church in Bristol, Va., was arrested in July after he allegedly urinated at a car wash, in front of children and police officers, while wearing a skirt. Police said alcohol was involved. And Catherine Delgado, 35, was arrested in Annapolis, Md., in August after she appeared, smudged with fudge, in a hotel lobby around midnight with “large slabs of fudge bulging out of her pockets” (according to a Washington Post story). A police officer later checked a nearby Fudge Kitchen store and found the door inexplicably open and a large display quantity missing from the front window. Police said alcohol was involved, along with fudge.

Oral-B’s Triumph SmartGuide toothbrush, available in the United Kingdom for the equivalent of about $280, uses navigation technology to transmit the exact location of the toothbrush to a base unit so that the user can see which areas in his mouth the brush might have missed.

PEOPLE WITH TOO MUCH MONEY The adolescent offspring of some wellto-do parents are serious art collectors, according to a September Wall Street Journal report, and their interest appears not to be motivated solely by parents’ strategies to shield income from the tax collector.

ROBREPORT FARM: continued from page 8 “chicken feed,” often used to describe a paltry sum, has become a victim of inflation. Moser’s farm has a tool shed, walkin cooler, worker’s quarters and two greenhouses, one currently filled with tomatoes. Fruit flies are cyclical, he says, proliferating when there is a profusion of wild guavas, mangoes and other fruits. So he generally doesn’t plant tomatoes, cucumbers or summer squash outdoors, except between March and June. On this particular pick-up day, his chalkboard lists what customers will receive: salad mix, kale, tatsoi (similar to spinach and baby bak choi), romaine, leeks or green onions, soybeans, cilantro, kohlrabi and eggs. The board also indicates that he stocks Molokai certified organic, grass-fed beef. It originates from Jack Spruance’s Pu’u O Hoku Ranch on Molokai’s east end, where Jack’s wife Ellen Sugiwara also grows biodynamic edible ginger. Produce pick-up day is a wonderful social event. Moser stands by at a wooden picnic table in front of his walk-in cooler as customers arrive, baskets and tote bags in hand. One person brings a handful of recycled egg cartons. Another brings fresh figs from her tree, with news that she keeps the birds from eating them by hanging old shiny compact discs from the branches. Another customer brings two small plastic containers of homemade goodies. One contains kim chee, made from a monstrous type of leafy Chinese cabbage. The other holds pickled kohlrabi, sliced thin like daikon radish and seasoned with umeboshi and sesame. Some of Moser’s customers have been loyally buying his vegetables for the entire nine years he’s been farming in Peahi. With a full farm schedule of planting, weeding, composting and maintenance, it’s important to Moser that he limit his customer service to keep work interruptions down. And Eileen is the full-time elementary school librarian at Kamehameha Schools, in Pukalani. Moser posts employment opportunities through a large network of “WWOOFers” via the organization World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms. He says the live-in workers generally stay for two to six months and make his operation possible. He says he might have given up, were it not for their help. Besides hand tools, Moser uses a 22-horsepower Kubota tractor. The bucket is handy for mixing compost and the tiller attachment comple-

Customer Joanna ments a smaller Troy-bilt tiller, which he also uses inside his greenhouses. “It’s very important to keep the soil loose,” he says. The specific Biodynamic preparations he uses include six different formulas in making compost, and two more are used as soil amendments and to nourish the growing plants. Because he continually feeds the soil to keep it healthy, his plants grow strong and he has fewer bug problems. Understanding where our food comes from and achieving greater island food self-reliance should become increasingly important. Yet community needs for infrastructure, affordable housing and economic well being seem to outpace the basic need to establish a local strategy to insure food security. Proposals to produce biofuels for transportation and electrical generation seem to ignore the greater need to utilize fallow agriculture lands for food sustenance. In his book The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture, Wendell Berry writes that today’s agri-business enterprises have taken the farming culture out of agriculture. He mourns the great loss of American potential when we lost the commitment to live well on the land and with the spiritual discipline necessary to do so. Our generation lives in an age of conveniences, unaware of the fragility of the threads that may hold together the tapestry of our lives. Isolated as we are in Hawai‘i, and with great dependence upon imported food, energy and goods, we are particularly ripe for change. As we strive to replace current paradigms with systems that actually work, examples like Moser’s Haiku Biodynamic Farm offer a potent reminder that many of the goals we seek may be right around the corner.

alm. He uses that word a lot. “It’s so calm here,” he told me more than once during our interviews. “It’s so peaceful.” Grant Steward, his wife Esprit and their three children—Dakota (7), Molly (5) and Hailey (4)— moved to Maui last November precisely because of the island’s serenity. We may bitch and moan about Pali traffic jams and over-development and the Superferry, but to Steward, Maui is truly paradise. He works 20 hours a week at Best Screens in Lahaina. “It’s a great job,” he said. “My boss, Leslie Hill, is really great. The customers are great. Very little stress.” He watches a lot of cartoons—South Park, The Simpsons, Family Guy. Comedies, too— he doesn’t have cable, but he’s got lots of comedies on DVD. And he never, ever watches the news. Steward was a 24-year-old Private First Class in the Oregon National Guard when he first shipped out to Iraq. That was April 2004. He was there until February 2005. His unit—the 2nd Battalion of the 162nd Infantry Regiment (2/162), attached to the 1st Cavalry Division—spent much of the time at Patrol Base Volunteer, just east of Baghdad. Iraq’s capital city was still fairly calm then—the bloody sectarian killings that led to President George W. Bush’s “Surge” hadn’t yet started—and Steward’s unit had a relatively quiet time. “We actually didn’t lose many guys,” Steward said. “Guys got injured, but no one died. In my actual squad, no one actually got injured. A couple guys in my platoon got hit.” Still, it was a war. Though discharged not long after he returned to Oregon with the rank of specialist—more authority than a PFC, but less than a sergeant—the after-effects of the war remain with Steward. He’s lost sensation in his fingertips, and he’s not sure why, though it’s possibly due to the many, many hours he spent as a machine gunner in a Humvee. Doctors suggested re-routing the nerves in his elbows, but Steward said no, thanks. At night, he grinds his teeth. Steward talked about it during U.S. Senator Daniel Akaka’s Aug.

23 field hearing on veterans’ healthcare. “According to my loving wife, if my bruxism, teeth grinding, is going to keep her awake, her elbow will keep me awake,” Steward said during the hearing, held in the Maui County Council chambers. “I even find myself clinching my teeth throughout the day. I don’t have dental coverage, so my teeth get worse every month. I understand the VA [Veterans Affairs department] wanting to cut costs, but when you have a service connection for two problems with your head, the VA should include care for the whole head.” Steward said vets need to be at least “60 percent disabled” to get dental coverage, but he said recent help from a staffer at Senator Akaka’s office got him “night guards,” which fit inhis mouth at night and keep him from grinding down his teeth. “It’s a step in the right direction,” he told me. “Hopefully in the next few months I’ll get more work, or I’ll have to pay through the nose.” Steward also regularly sees a couple counselors. “My father-in-law, a Vietnam Vet, practically dragged me to see him,” Steward told me. “I don’t really think about the war unless I talk to you or the counselors. Then I go and turn on cartoons. I’ve got an iPod that I carry around. I’ll watch The Secret, What the #$*! Do We (k)now!?. I’ll sit there and get lost in that.” At one point, I asked Steward, who still wears his blondish hair high and tight, if he missed being in Iraq. “I kinda do,” he said. “I miss helping out.”

H

elping out is a theme Steward often returned to when talking about Iraq. He said it’s why he first joined the army in 1998. “There was no way in hell I was going to drown at sea,” he said. “I had no urge to be a jarhead. I almost joined the air force, but the army had more bases and I wanted to see the world. I just wanted to serve my country. Where I was, not a lot of people joined. No one was stepping up, serving the

country, and it was ticking me off.” Steward spent two years in active duty U.S. Army, then got an early discharge when his wife became ill. Feeling guilty about not fulfilling his original obligation, he signed up with the Oregon National Guard in 2003. Not long after, his unit got word that they were going to Iraq. Even before reaching the war, Steward said he earned a reputation as “Mr. Fix-it.” “When I went to Iraq, we all had limited space to take stuff,” he said. “I took a tool box, so I could fix stuff. I put Internet into their rooms. They don’t have that now. I fixed their computers for them. When stuff breaks now, they just toss it because they don’t have anyone to fix it.” Before deploying to Iraq, Steward’s unit was sent to Food Hood, Texas, where it found itself in barracks that probably should have been condemned. No one else was fixing toilets, showers or airconditioning units, so Steward set to work. Exemplifying how much technology has changed a deployed soldier’s daily life, once his unit reached Iraq, Steward set about hooking his company up to the Internet so he and his buddies could chat with their families back home. “On a lot of missions, you go out five to six hours, then come back and rest,” he said. “The web cam was an insane treat for us. When I first got there, I couldn’t talk to my wife for about three weeks, and it really stressed her out. A cell phone costs a couple hundred dollars a month, but for a flat $50 a month we could go on the Internet.” Steward said he and his buddies could talk to their spouses and children a couple times a day. On days off, he could talk to her all day. The set-up was unique, and quickly became the envy of other troops who passed

through the base.” “It blew their minds,” Steward said. “We were a small forward operating base—our PX was constantly out of everything—but we had a topnotch Internet set-up. The large bases had everything, but the only way to connect to the Internet was at a MWR—

Morale, Welfare and Recreation center. And you’d wait a couple hours in line. But we usually had more connections than computers.” There was never such a thing a “typical” week in Iraq for Steward and his unit. The troops went through what the army called a “mission cycle.” They might spend three weeks providing security at a Forward Operating Base—what Steward referred to as “watching the same patches of dirt and sand for 12 hours.” Then they might spend three to four weeks watching the Palestine and Ishtar hotels in Baghdad. They might then serve duty as a “Quick Reaction Force (QRF)”—a combat unit more or less always on the alert, ready to “leave the wire” within two minutes of hearing about nearby trouble.

sit atop the lead Humvee with a 25-pound, M240B machine gun. It was his responsibility to keep watch as the convoy rolled through town. But in late 2004, Steward switched jobs and became a driver. “It posed a huge moral dilemma,” he said. “I was responsible for the safety of the convoy. Now some other guy was responsible.” For the most part, Baghdad was good terrain for the 2/162, Steward said. It was an urban area that was mostly quiet.

his leg as blood pooled in his boot. When I asked if he got the Purple Heart for his wound, Steward just laughed. “It was during the ’04 election,” he said. “No one wanted a John Kerry award.” At one point Steward’s unit was sent south, to relieve a U.S. Marine Corps unit. “The area was farms and canals,” Steward said. “And the people hated the marines. You’d look at a kid and he’d just stare you down.” Steward’s unit spent a month there, training a replacement unit to take over, trying to tell them that not everyone was their enemy and that it wasn’t necessary to blow everything and everyone up—evidently, the previous marine occupiers had been very quick to shoot at the slightest provocation. Then Steward and his unit returned to Baghdad. “I don’t know what good we did,” he said. “We were replaced by another marine unit. God help ‘em.” Steward said he and his unit always tried to moderate their use of force and keep the general population on their side—a truism of counter-insurgency more generals and politicians should learn and advise. But there were instances, he said, when he had to shoot. And kill. “There were a few times,” he said. “But the way I look at it is I could have shot a lot more people than I did.” One of the times occurred at a checkpoint Steward and a few other soldiers were manning. Between two and three in the morning, a car drove up and turned off its lights. “Cool, we thought, he’s not trying to blind us,” Steward said. “But he drove forward.” The men had strung concertina wire about 150 meters in front of the checkpoint. There was a sign illuminated with chemical lights beyond that, which warned Iraqis driving up that there were U.S. military operations in the area and that they should seek an alternative route. But this guy, for whatever reason, kept

driving, and eventually hit the wire. The rules of engagement were very strict—any car that hits the wire gets fired upon. “We fired,” Steward said. “He stopped immediately. Bullets apparently bounced off the engine block and hit him.” Another time Steward was in a convoy, which began taking fire from a nearby rooftop. “We pretty much leveled the house,” he said.

S

teward calls Iraq “a work in progress” that will “take time” to make right. “My wife is pissed that popcorn takes five minutes to pop,” he said, talking about an American’s typical level of patience. But he has no patience with war protestors. “Maui’s great,” he told me early on in our first interview. “I don’t have to see retarded anti-war bumper stickers on cars.” For Steward, opposition groups are ignorant of the real issues and people in the war. “Have you been there?” he asked rhetorically. “Have you talked to them [the Iraqis]? Have you shared the same food? Until you’ve done that, you don’t know what’s going on over there. Yeah, mistakes were made—are made—but you don’t hear about the good things. Want to start a riot in Baghdad? Throw a kid a soccer ball.” Knowing Steward disliked hearing news on Iraq, I nonetheless emailed him a New York Times op-ed piece published Aug. 19 of this year. Written by six sergeants and one specialist currently deployed to Iraq with the 82nd Airborne Division and called “The War as We Saw It,” the extraordinary essay condemns the recent “Surge” of

troops in Baghdad in unusually harsh terms. “The claim that we are increasingly in control of the battlefields of Iraq is an assessment arrived at through a flawed, Americancentered framework,” the soldiers wrote. “Yes, we are militarily superior, but our successes are offset by failures elsewhere.” Clearly stated as the opinion of just seven soldiers, the essay was nonetheless a unique view from the front. These were not retired generals or professional pundits in Washington, but actual combat soldiers. In fact, during the writing of the essay one of the authors was shot in the head during a raid and evacuated to the U.S. for medical treatment. A few weeks after the essay came out, two other authors died when their cargo truck overturned in western Baghdad. Steward read the piece and got back to me the next day. He focused on the essay’s last line: “We need not talk about our morale,” the authors wrote. “As committed soldiers we will see this mission through.” “That is such a true statement,” Steward told me. “As a soldier, not being able to complete a mission is a horrible feeling. And to have spent so much and to have sacrificed so much for the Iraqis, only to be forced out because the Democrats want to make the

It’s expensive, but necessary in Iraq, where silica in the air wrecks havoc with DVDs and players. About a year after Steward left the National Guard his old unit was sent to Afghanistan. Still trying to be Mr. Fix-it, Steward tried to set a system whereby soldiers could take their computers to their base’s MWR, plug them into a network and then Steward, back home, could diagnose and fix whatever was wrong with them. But setting up the network proved to be a bureaucratic nightmare—Steward said he had to cut corners to set up his unit’s Internet connections back in Iraq—and it ultimately never happened. In any case, the combat and boredom of Iraq is never really far from Steward. He was, for all intents and purposes, just a regular grunt—an average Joe sent off to war. When he spoke at Senator Akaka’s field hearing, he spoke about the pressure it presents to both him and his family. “I find it difficult to open up with what’s going on in my head, so unfortunately, my family can get left in the dark,” he said. “My wife has been very understanding, and I do feel guilty for not being able to communicate with her as much as I know I should.” Generally happy with the level of care he’s received from the VA, Steward told Akaka that veterans could really benefit from having access to legal as well as medical care. “Recently, I had to deal with a rather messy landlord/tenant issue,” he told Akaka. “If the local VA had a list of lawyers who TOP: Iraqi and American soldiers stand work with veterans, it watch; LEFT: Sewage runs through the street would have helped of one of Baghdad’s poorer neighborhoods with the stress by Republicans look bad or pointing me in the right direction.

Auntie Pasto’s

It’s pretty extravagant for a ‘diner’ The black metal plate was absolutely sizzling as the server carefully placed it before me. Cautiously, I leaned forward and drank in the aroma of the still-cooking food. Calamari. Melted mozzarella. Hot peppers, sliced so thin they were draped over the plate like lace.

Auntie Pasto’s Queen Ka‘ahumanu Center, 275 W. Ka‘ahumanu Ave., Kahului, 877-8711. $

The server handed me a small plate, but I just started jabbing my fork into the mass of calamari, cheese, peppers and onions.

Stopping only to stuff a piece or two of garlic bread into my mouth, I soon made sure there was nothing left on the plate to sizzle. Such was my first meal at Auntie Pasto’s, a new restaurant at the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Center in the old Arby’s/Orange Julius location. Owner Ed Wary bills the place as an Italian/American “diner”—Northern Italy by way of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, I guess—and already has two locations on Oahu. “Home-style, country cooking,” he said in the menu. “Nothing too fancy. The food served in the homes of blue-collar Italian-Americans along the East Coast and New England. Italian comfort food, if you will.” Now I grew up in a “blue-collar Italian-American” home and, though it was on the West Coast, we never, ever had calamari—served on a hot plate of sizzling deliciousness or not. What’s more, I spent many a Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter at the blue-collar Italian-American home of my pater-

nal grandparents, and they never served calamari either. After eating at Auntie Pasto’s, I really wish they had. They could have done wonders with the dish… But I digress. Calling Auntie Pasto’s a “diner” seems silly to me, especially if you look over the menu, which is huge. I counted 55 entrees and antipasto dishes, including 10 pizzas, four steaks, eight salads and four calamari dishes. They have White Clam pizza and Clams & Broccoli pasta. They offer Sausage & Peppers in both pasta and pizza forms. They’ll pan-sear a steak, simmer it in red wine and tomato sauce and then top it with garlic and mozzarella cheese (Steak Pizziola), top it with lemon juice and sea salt and serve it over creamed spinach (Steak Florentine) or top it with pickled hot peppers and vegetables (Chicago-Style Pepper Steak). And they’ve got spaghetti, lasagna, Chicken Cacciatore and Shrimp Scampi, because if they didn’t, they wouldn’t be Italian.

Sound like a diner to you? How about the bar menu: with your pizza or steak or lasagna you can enjoy a Pineapple Cosmo (Citreon vodka, pineapple juice and Cointreau with a li hing mui sugar rim), a Blueberry & Mint Mojito or a pitcher of Sangria. Their wine list includes 22 names, and they also serve a variety of beers, including the very tasty Stella Artois. Of course, they also have Pabst Blue Ribbon on tap, but that’s probably just to keep the diner motif alive. To sum up: Auntie Pasto’s is clearly not any kind of diner I’ve ever visited, but you’ll be glad of it. MTW

[BOOK TALK] Believe it or not, there’s a book series you’ve probably never heard of that’s sold more than 10 million copies. I find this perplexing because I’m an avid reader and have been made to feel like I’ve been living on some type of rock or something. Oh, wait… Nevermind. Anyway, the series is called Ringing Cedars. According to their official website, “These highly unusual books provide extraordinary insights into dozens of subjects–from natural child rearing to the production of highenergy, healing foods, from the meaning of human life to the amazing potential that awaits every one of us, from ancient megalithic science to the vital importance of breast-feeding, and from sacred sexuality to the hidden history of world religions.” Publisher, co-translator and editor of the English editions Leonid Sharashkin will be on hand to discuss the books, launch the newest of the series, and offer insight into the phenomenon on this series. Curious? Me, too. Free. For more information call 575-5220 or visit www.ringingcedars.com.

Ferran’s adaption has won five Caesar Awards (which are kind of like French Academy Awards) including Best Picture and Best Actress. The gist of the tale is that a young woman named Constance becomes restless when her older husband is injured during World War I and can no longer put out like she wants. She ends up taking up with the gamekeeper on the property and the two have wild monkey sex. Such wild monkey sex that they merge nature, sex and romance into one, which is total child’s play because I do that all the time. Tickets: $10. For more information call 572-3456.

Charles Baxter’s acclaimed Midsummer Night’s Dream-inspired romantic novel receives a clumsy screen adaptation from director Robert Benton (Kramer vs. Kramer). Screenwriter Allison Burnett moves the novel’s original Ann Arbor setting to Portland, Oregon where a collection of artificially drawn lovers connect and bail out before uniting with new sweethearts. Morgan Freeman lends his all-too-familiar voice-over narration, speaking the author’s generic theme lines, to guide the audience through the brief maze of doomed pairings.

OCTOBER 4, 2007

MAUI TIME WEEKLY

Harry Stevenson (Freeman) is a semi-retired university professor who advises local coffee shop owner Bradley (Greg Kinnear) on matters of the heart after Bradley’s fickle wife (Selma Blair) abandons their marriage for a lesbian affair with the short stop from a rival softball team. Bradley rebounds with Diana (Radha Mitchell), an oversexed realtor secretly keeping up an affair with a married and equally lascivious partner. Bradley is a textbook example of a self-help perfectionist who can’t see the

forest for the trees. Instead of sizing Diana up for the sexpot that she is, and savoring the relationship for its sensual rewards, Bradley goes gooey and marries her. Bradley’s coffee shop youthful employee Oscar (Toby Hemingway) is damaged goods due to a heroin-addicted past and life with an abusive alcoholic father named Bat (Fred Ward). Oscar finds love-at-firstsite with a quirky girl named Chloe (Alexa Davalos), and they promptly get married in spite of Bat’s physical threats. Good thing then that Oscar and Chloe befriend the empathetic Harry and his wife Esther (Jane Alexander) who carry the burden of losing their only son to a drug overdose. If all of this soft-soap-swapping seems overtly maudlin, that’s because it is. The tone of the movie slips from near comedic to sentimental between cliches of things like Oscar and Chloe having sex on the 50yard line of a football stadium beneath the stars. For all of Harry’s patronizing vocalization about the emotional physiology of his neighbors, there isn’t anyone here that sustains believability. The most interesting character is Jenny (Stana Katic), the lesbian short stop whose subplot mysteriously evaporates before the end of the first reel. Although Harry is its mascot, the story belongs to Bradley who maims himself with a kitchen knife late in the story. It’s a narrative miscalculation that the movie attempts to congratulate itself for when Bradley falls for a nurse that tends to his self-inflicted wound in an emergency room. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s lesser comedies, but The Feast of Love is a hodgepodge of sentimentality that’s neither funny nor tragic. It’s just bland. MTW

‘Little Bit of Soul’ Earl Love brings the good ol’ stuff to Maui

Photos: Sean Michael Hower

Earl Love’s lean, 6’4” frame is perched on to a high bar stool at Ambrosia in Kihei. His striped fedora is tilted slightly to the left and his aloha shirt unbuttoned halfway to his navel. Even sitting down he towers over the baby grand piano to his left. To his right is a small table holding a bouquet of flowers and a glass of brandy. It’s shortly after 10 p.m., and a well-dressed, young crowd is packed into the intimate jazz lounge oasis. They’re sitting in pairs on overstuffed couches and tall bar stools, sipping pricey drinks from martini glasses and snifters, occasionally conversing but mainly watching Love’s soulful performance. Love sounds a bit like Barry White, but doesn’t like to be classified with other singers just because he sings low and slow. At the moment he’s focused on the bluesy rhythm of the old song he’s singing, but manages to

notice a pretty blonde walk in and pluck a pink rose from the vase. Joel Gold, Love’s backup on the piano, takes a solo while Love hugs and welcomes the girl, then finishes singing Sarah Vaughan’s “Don’t Go to Strangers” in a smooth, baritone.

Earl Love Gian Don’s, Wed., 6 p.m. 1445 S. Kihei Rd., 874-4041.

“I just want people to come and relax, to listen to the music and leave the hard workday behind,” he says. Love sings the music that he grew up with in the 1940’s–Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Roy Hamilton. Love believes yesterday’s music has a quality that new stuff doesn’t. “I don’t get down on hip-hop,” he

says. “I just think that things that came out of yesterday were more meaningful. Back then, you had to be real good because it took a long time to cut a record and you didn’t have all the studio equipment that makes you sound better.” He jokes that he was born singing, but Love first starting honing his deep voice, and adding a bit of gospel flavor to it, in the Sanctified Baptist Church choir in his home town of Akron, Ohio. Earl’s got a hat full of stories to tell about his musical career, which got its start when he met his mentor Dexter Gordon, the great tenor saxophonist and actor, in an Ohio barbershop where Love was working. Love spent many days badgering Gordon to hear him sing. Finally, Gordon relented. At 16 Love joined the U.S. Marine Corps and went to Korea. There he sang with a group called “The Longtimers,” in reference to their deployment sentence. They once took third place, he says, in a competition that included all four military branches. Then there was the time in Anaheim, California, when he somehow won a local talent show. “It was at a hillbilly bar,” Earl says. “I traded my clothes for some overalls and a big cowboy hat. I knew they had my song because I saw it on the jukebox.” He got on stage and rocked “For the Good Time,” by Charley Ritz for a room full of strangers. He ended up walking out with $500 in his pocket and a big smile on his face. Several years ago, Love cut a record with long time friend and jazz musician Gene Walker. “After 7” showcases Love’s style in 11 bluesy anthems and ballads. But today, Love spends his time spreading his beloved jazz on Wednesday evenings at Gian Don’s in Kihei. He occasionally stops by the Kihei Senior Center and Youth Center, and a few days each week he heads to the beach near his house, where he sings to the waves and the sun. What was supposed to be a two-week trip to Maui turned into two years so far, and Love says wouldn’t rather be anywhere else. “I wished for all this,” he tells me outside Gian Dons one recent night, as he looks around at the trees and the sky. “Then, when I finally got here, Maui gave me an extra little bit of soul.” MTW

Hot Stuff Lassoed With A Decorative Tongue I’m not sure if poet Eric David Lough from Lahaina is married. If he isn’t, well… How should I put this? His poetry is extremely moving. And when I say moving, I mean erotic. And when I say erotic, I actually mean fricking hot. Lough actually sizzles. His descriptions are provocative and mesmerizing. Reading his words makes me feel like I’m on a sexy acid trip to a place where men are emotional and smart. Lassoed With A Decorative Tongue is a superb collection of poetry by a man who obviously thinks, and thinks deep. Not just that, he has the ability to put those thoughts on the page in a way that makes me want to jump into bed with him and say, “Take me now and write about it later!” Not that it’s all about sex–it’s about life. But just so we’re on the same page, here’s a snippet from “To Simmer Silt,” one of my favorite Lough poems: “…a field isn’t absolutely grand unless it ejaculates exotic flowers and blows race car winds…” I can see it and feel it. The whole book is amazing like that.

Katchafire Katchafire first blessed me at their recent Maui concert as they mesmerized a massive and very Irie crowd into a reggae-induced, swaying, singalong trance that I was extremely glad to join. It was the first New Zealand reggae I experienced, and I couldn’t have chosen a better group for my musical deflowering. Although their new album is titled Say What You’re Thinking, and this indigenous group of Kiwis could definitely have a thing or two to say about cultural issues, their album mostly shies away from socially tinged lyrics and favors a simpler message of love and happiness. They weave their musical web with slow, dreamy rhythms, harmonies and an irresistible, laid back roots sound. From the horn-drenched, pop reggae grooves of their title track, to the keyboard rhythms and high-pitched vocals of “Love Letter,” this album is perfectly polished reggae magnificence.

Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down Sometimes I mourn the fact that I’m no longer single and can pass a drug test without getting freaked out and consuming gallons of “detoxifying” tea. But there was a day, and I sure wish that I could remember it clearly, when I couldn’t. In fact, watching The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down reminded me of a specific shindig I attended in Manoa Valley that involved multiple kegs, micro-dots and wild hanky-panky. It also involved people convincing themselves that they were chess pieces and the cops, but such is life. This film won the Grand Jury Best Film, Audience Choice, Best Director, Best Ensemble Cast and Best Selection back in 2006 at the L.A. Indies Film awards. See, it’s a proven fact that homo sapiens love to overdose on tits and ass and drugs. I have to admit this was a hilariously evil flick–it follows a group of 20-30 somethings on a single night of clubbing, drugging and screwing. What’s not to love? To top it off, the film is loaded with tips and graphs to help the clueless partygoer on a night of intoxicated and pantieless debauchery. The only thing missing is a toll free number to Narcotics Anonymous, which would totally come in handy after a successful rager.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) There are certain times of year when fresh beginnings are more likely to work out. Next week is one, thanks to the New Moon in your sign. Old grudges can finally be put to rest. This opportunity to begin again is good, but not necessarily lengthy; blink and you might miss it. So this week set yourself up well: get rid of baggage that would hold you back or slow you down, and put yourself in a good position to make the leap to wherever you’d like to go next. Don’t miss this chance, and don’t say you weren’t warned!

I’d wager that the vast majority of professions people end up in aren’t things they fantasized about doing in their youths. Who dreams of being a middle-management cubical inhabitant, a gravedigger, a tobacco spokesman, or any number of other less-than-glamorous and/or morally ambiguous jobs? This is not to say that we should all be miserable that we didn’t become astronauts or marine biologists or rock stars. But I’m worried: have you given up on all your childhood dreams? Perhaps there’s one that’s still actually achievable. If you aren’t already actively pursuing it, start this week.

Can you be like India? Westerners have been going to India for more than two centuries, yet it’s somehow preserved its cultural identity remarkably well. It has a way of absorbing various influences and making them indisputably Indian, while other countries’ cultures can be quickly subsumed by the cultural and economic forces wielded by Western society. I want you to be like that: take everything on, absorb everything, and make it your own. Can you be absolutely open to every last thing that comes your way, and yet not forget exactly who you are?

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Make awkward tension a new acquired taste. Why not? It’s a frequent part of your week. While it may be more comfortable to simply avoid the people with whom you create those nervous sparks, sometimes that’s just not possible. Don’t just grit your teeth and get through these encounters, though. Go one step further: learn to enjoy them. Look at the situation from the outside. There’s probably humor (and possibly pathos) in it. Once you can see that, you might delight in those awkward encounters, and even look forward to them. Of course, don’t enjoy them too much, or they might cease to be awkward at all.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) According to The Church of Google (thechurchofgoogle.org), Google is God or the closest thing to it. Googlists contend “She” is practically omniscient, omnipresent, immortal, infinite, and prayer-answering, among other things. While on the surface their contention is preposterous, I’m impressed by their ability to see things in a new way, and by their surprisingly reasonable arguments, which make Google’s status as God easier to prove than any other God’s. Turn whatever you’re obsessing about on its head this week. Toss it around until it looks like something totally different. You’re not likely to invent a new god, but you could be lucky enough to found a new minor cult.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) While there’s no question that you often suck at making up your mind, and you’re prone to secondguess virtually everything you ever do, those are all superficial traits. Beneath that ever-shifting surface, you’re actually extremely unlikely to change much very quickly. Perhaps your indecisiveness makes your personal evolution very slow and careful. There’s nothing wrong with that; in fact, it’s likely to give this week’s special guests comfort: That makes you someone they can count on. Pull aside the curtain of your wishy-washy outer persona and reveal the solid and dependable person beneath it. Most folks will like what they see.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Stepping up and taking any kind of leadership role frequently puts a target on your back. People who were too chickenshit to take charge are often only too eager to criticize what you’re up to, and tear down whatever you’re trying to achieve. That, my dear, is the price you’ve got to pay for having the guts to proudly advocate what you believe in. Don’t bitch and moan about it. Those people are too lame to matter much in the end; while most critiques ought to be at least considered, don’t let theirs drag you down or keep you from doing what you always intended to do.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You’re going to need an especially astute eye this week, when it comes to judging people. Everyone has their filters and their baggage. Right now it’s especially important to remember that, and put whatever they’re saying into that context. If a generally unhappy person is complaining about something, you might be able to take that into account; she’s not likely to ever be happy, no matter what you do. That’s not to say you should ignore her, but a complaint from someone you know to be levelheaded, reasonable and positive ought to naturally be given a lot more weight and credence, don’t you think? You don’t necessarily like to judge people, but you’re good at it, and this week—it’s your job.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) There’s simply not enough time in the day for you to really get into all the things you enjoy. Some are just going to have to fall by the wayside. How do you decide? Lately it’s been more random chance and opportunity than anything else, but this week’s a good one to make your decisions at least slightly more conscious. What will bring the most joy, inspiration, and excitement to the most people, including yourself? Don’t let random fate steer you. Steer yourself.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Although you’re ready to offer your support and allegiance to one side or another of a conflict, you may be shocked and dismayed to find that they’re just not interested. In terms of this conflict, you don’t matter, and what’s more—your involvement is simply unwelcome. In other words, butt out, and don’t make a big drama about it. They’re not you. While you might appreciate the love and support offered by your friends, these guys would rather just work this out on their own, without their well-meaning friends nosing in on the action. Bite your tongue, turn the other cheek, and get on with your life.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) What you wouldn’t give for a personal assistant! Then you could focus on the big ideas that excite you and let him take care of all the little shit you despise wasting time and energy on. Dream on. Until you’re rich enough to hire one, you’re on your own, which means you’ve got to divide your time between the bold fantasies you adore and the mundane details which keep your life from falling apart. Many Leos err on the side of too much dreaming and too little doing, and get so bogged down in neglected details that their dreams become even less achievable. Don’t be one of those. This week’s a good one to take steps—both big dramatic ones and careful tiny ones—towards becoming one of those impressive, accomplished Leos who can afford to hire help.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Leos may avoid nitpicky details like the plague. You embrace them. You may not love it, but you’re damn good at it. What worries me is your diminishing view of the big picture. Leos never lose sight of their grandiose hopes and dreams, but they forget to do stuff like wash dishes and buy people birthday presents. You have the opposite problem: you’re so busy tying up loose ends that you lose sight of your biggest and best aspirations. This week, tear down the virtual wallpaper of To-Do lists obscuring your view of those brilliant fantasies; at least a glimpse of them is long overdue.

OCTOBER 4, 2007

I’ve always been a gambler. I come from a family that takes side-bets during our annual Christmas Bingo extravaganza. As a kid, after trick-or-treating my girlfriend and I would sit down with our loot and a deck of cards and play 7 Card Stud for the good stuff. Many times I’d sit down with my baby brother and play Go-Fish for chore duties. I’d always win, possibly because I cheat at Go-Fish. My dad once sat me down at the kitchen table when I was 11 and took me for my weekly allowance and then some. It turned out that he could see the reflection of my hand in the windowpane behind me. He didn’t give me my money back. These days, I have a pretty regular No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em game going on at my house. Every week, we play with the same cast of characters, and it’s odd but when you consistently gamble with people, it’s like you become bedmates. Over time, you learn what makes them tick, even if they rarely even speak. For example, there’s this guy we play with that I’ve been friends with for 17 years. This bastard knows me. He brings out the 12-year old in me that wants to be “King of the Tire.” He knows that if I bet out at him with a mediocre hand, he can re-raise me with nothing and I will call him just to show that I have big balls, too. The problem is that God loves him more than me. He always hits gold on the river and I end up paying him because I would rather lose than take the chance of giving him the satisfaction of bluffing me. On the other hand, my husband plays too tight for a cash game. His style is better suited to tournaments. He has no problem folding hand after hand— playing one or two hands for everyone else’s five or six. If we’re in a pot together, he usually over-bets and I’ll fold no matter what because it kinda sucks to be the reason your husband goes to bed crying. As a girl, I always make more money on those rare nights a stranger sits at our table. Women are naturally underestimated while playing “a man’s game” and I love that. But what I love more than anything is winning a hand with a bluff. Bluffing, at its core, is lying and getting rewarded for it. I guess there’s something innately evil about enjoying something like that, but I do. It’s ironic that while I see myself as a gamblin’ ramblin’ gal, I don’t really like to take risks, and I absolutely hate to be challenged for everything that I have. I must have masochistic tendencies because I subject myself to both all the time. But maybe sitting down to play cards with more money than I can afford to lose is my way of purging those tendencies in a “safe” environment. I mean, more money can be made. Everyday, in science and medicine, in driving fast, in drug use, in drinking and driving and in human-to-human relationships, people gamble with bigger wagers than cash all the time. Sometimes you get dealt awesome cards and the board is fair and all is well. Other times you get good cards and the board screws you over. In the long run it’s not about the cards anyway, it’s about you and what you do with what you’re dealt.
