Rail Wars & Sinking Ships HYPER LOCAL
LOCAL As the gubernatorial election draws
closer, it’s no secret the Hawaii Republican Party is hoping to mobilize both religious groups (an easy get for Duke “Hawaii belongs to Jesus” Aiona) and the FOX News-sponsored Tea Party movement. But that base, vocal and organized though it may be, probably won’t be enough to win; Aiona will also have to appeal to so-called moderate voters. Which is what makes the state GOP’s choice of keynote speaker

named after dead people. Solution: Bill 79, which would amend the law to read, “unless the person is the President of the United States born in Hawaii.” That one’s in the hands of the Honolulu City Council, but the legislature is also considering giving Obama some symbolic strokes, including making his birthday a state holiday. Even the staunchest haters will probably embrace that one: a day off is a day off…. The scuffle

When it comes to Maui (and Hawaii) politics, nothing gets done quickly. Up until a few months ago, the best/worst example of that truism was the perpetually unfinished Kealia Pond Boardwalk in South Maui. Then they opened the thing (after only 15 years!) and a void was created. Enter the half-submerged sailboat that sank in the water off Front Street more than six years ago and remains there to this day like a listing, rusted maritime art installation. For years, efforts to remove the boat were stalled by funding and permit issues and bureaucratic buck-passing. In 2008, Rep. Angus McKelvey and Sen. Roz Baker secured $150,000 and the Department of Land and Natural Resources was set to do the deed. But, as reported in the January 11 Maui News, the money has been yanked, a casualty of state-level belttightening. So yes—government futility summed up, literally, by an old sinking ship. Sometimes they make it too easy…. This week’s feature (page 12) is a Q&A with a cop who thinks marijuana should be legalized. The thrust of his argument is that people will do it anyway, so we might as well regulate the stuff. Essentially the same argument is made by Maui County Police Chief Gary Yabuta in the January 12 Maui News: “It’s real easy to say, ‘Let’s put a ban on [it].’ It’s easier said than done. Unfortunately, people are willing to disregard current law and purchase… through the black market.” Of course, he’s talking about ﬁreworks, not pot. But the only real difference I can see is that (mis) using fireworks can actually kill you….
Yeah, him again.
at its upcoming Lincoln Day dinner so curious: Karl Rove. Yes, the man who brought you the Valerie Plame CIA leak, introduced the term “Swift Boat” into the national lexicon and engineered eight years of George W. Bush. Quoted in a January 2 KITV dispatch, Republican Party Chair Jonah Kaauwai said landing Rove “shows the credibility” of the party. On that, we agree…. There are special laws, and then there are really special laws. Put this in the latter category: Folks on Oahu want to name a park after President Obama. Problem is, the law says parks can only be
between Gov. Lingle and Honolulu Mayor Muﬁ Hannemann over the Oahu rail project continues to pick up speed. Lingle plans to convene a rail forum January 18 and “will discuss the financial plans directly with federal transportation officials while in Washington next month,” according to the Honolulu Advertiser. Lingle’s concerns focus mainly on the plan’s financial viability. I know I’ve beaten this drum before, but where was this sense of fiscal restraint and due diligence when a certain inter-island ferry was being, excuse the phrase, railroaded through without so much as a completed
With the 2010 legislative session approaching and the year’s various election match-ups taking shape, you can bet your rainbow flag (or red shirt) the civil union issue will bubble to the surface again. Any debate that takes place in Hawaii will be set to the backdrop of a landmark California case that seems destined to reach the U.S. Supreme Court. The trial, which began earlier this week, centers on two same-sex couples who are challenging Proposition 8, the California law passed in 2008 that bans gay marriage. The couples’ lawyers and supporters are selling it as the gay rights version of Brown v. Board of Education or Roe v. Wade. But others worry it could be too much too soon; if the case does reach the Supreme Court and is struck down, it would be a harsh, perhaps fatal, blow. A story in the December issue of American Prospect titled “The Gay Gamble” sums up the stakes: “[B]ecause the case is alleging that Prop. 8 violated the equal-protection clause of the U.S. Constitution, the federal court decision will have implications for gay Americans in nearly every arena of public life, from housing to parenting to military service. The court is set to consider questions as wide-ranging as what it means to be gay and whether it affects one’s contribution to society. It’s not just marriage rights on trial; it’s homosexuality itself.” ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/coconut27

LCWATCH Quorum “
nybody got a good joke?” Adjudication Boardmember Joe Tanaka asked the small crowd, assembled in the David K. Trask Building for the ﬁrst Adjudication hearing of 2010. Nobody did. The meeting was supposed to have started 10 minutes earlier, but, as Chairman Donald Fujii explained, only four members— Marilyn Colvin, Jerrybeth DeMello, Tanaka and Fujii —were present. Five are needed to make quorum. As the minutes ticked by—15, 20, 25—people started to get restless, especially the representatives from the offending establishments—Juca Mexican Restaurant and Paragon Sailing Charters—who had made their way to Wailuku on a rainy Thursday morning to be admonished for their sins and slapped with a ﬁne or, possibly, worse. “I know you all took time off to be here,” said Fujii, almost managing to Joe Tanaka sound apologetic. “We took time off too,” he quickly added, leaving the impression that we were all somehow in the same boat, that everyone in the room was, in equal measure, giving selﬂessly of their time to further the greater good. Finally, at 9:28am, nearly a half-hour after the meeting was scheduled to begin, the magical ﬁfth boardmember, Bill Kinaka, entered the room, explaining that he had to be in court (when he isn’t listening to the details of minor decoy stings, Kinaka’s a lawyer). And so disaster was averted, and another LC year commenced. The only downside? We never got to hear that joke. - Jacob Shafer

Opium & Overthrow More than a century ago, a conspiracy surrounding drug prohibition helped undo the Hawaiian monarchy
his week, 117 years ago, was a tumultuous time in Hawaii’s history. A series of events, concentrated within fewer days than the shelf life of this paper edition, culminated at 6pm on January 17, 1893, when Queen Liliuokalani effectively abdicated her authority and so ended monarchal rule in the Hawaiian islands. As presented in Appendix B to her autobiographical account, Hawaii’s Story by Hawaii’s Queen, Liliuokalani signed the following protest:
I, Liliuokalani, by the grace of God and under the constitution of the Hawaiian kingdom Queen, do hereby solemnly protest against any and all acts done against myself and the constitutional government of the Hawaiian kingdom by certain persons claiming to have established a Provisional Government of and for this kingdom. … Now, to avoid any collision of armed forces, and perhaps the loss of life, I do, under this protest and impelled by said forces, yield my authority until such time as the Government of the United States shall, upon the facts being presented to it, undo the action of its representative, and reinstate me in the authority which I claim as the constitutional sovereign of the Hawaiian Islands. Annexationists used three controversial bills to make their case against the queen. The first two public charges addressed Liliuokalani’s promulgation of a new constitution (to which she asserted that “twothirds of my people declared dissatisfaction with the old one; as well they might…”) and the signing of a lottery bill (Liliuokalani, among other defenses, wrote that “[w]e were petitioned and besought to grant it by most of the mercantile class of the city—shopkeepers, mechanics, manufacturers—in fact, all the middle class of the people.”) It is the third argument made against Liliuokalani where the smoke of conspiracy thickens, as it regards the Opium Licensing Bill and her “propos[al] to issue licenses for the importation and sale of opium.” To create the drug, opiate alkaloids are derived from the dried latex obtained by lacerating the immature, scepter-shaped seedpods of the opium poppy. So prevalent was the use and trafficking of opium that in 1839 and 1858, China and Britain engaged in the two Opium Wars (also called the Anglo-Chinese Wars). “I did think it would be wise to adopt measures for restricting and controlling a
trade which it is impossible to suppress,” wrote Liliuokalani. “With a Chinese population of over twenty thousands persons, it is absolutely impossible to prevent smuggling, unlawful trade, bribery, corruption and every abuse.” However, those connected to the underground opium trade—“some of the most prominent citizens,” as Liliuokalani wrote—stood to suffer huge losses at the
proceeds to acknowledge that the money was paid over by the Chinese.” Further editorial condemns Kalakaua and “Junius Kaae, previously conspicuous for nothing except being a ‘Palace hanger on,’ (since promoted to the office of Registrar of Deeds),” saying “[t]he opium bribery scandal has long been before the public… This matter is such a degradation to the country that we have hesitated heretofore to state the
“I did think it would be wise to adopt measures for restricting and controlling a trade which it is impossible to suppress,” wrote Queen Liliuokalani. hand of regulation. Liliuokalani wrote of “frauds unearthed even in the custom-house,” and said confiscated opium had been sold in British Columbia by “sons of the missionaries” for $50,000. An article published in The New York Times on September 26, 1879—originally from the September 17 edition of the San Francisco Bulletin—reported that “importation of opium into the islands is interdicted,” and that while opium in San Francisco could be purchased for “about $14 a pound,” it would “bring $60 or more per pound at the islands.” Many “ingenious” devices were employed for such a “remunerative” venture as opium smuggling in Hawaii. For example, the aforementioned story that piqued curiosity from the West to East coasts entailed “20 dozen men’s stogy brogans, having large wide heels, consigned to a Chinese firm… the heels of the shoes were hollow, and when sent to Honolulu contained about a quarter pound of opium.” The article concluded that the methods were “an old device, having been resorted to years ago in this port,” and estimated that the specific undertaking in question “[had] realized in the neighborhood of $3,000, less expenses.” A much larger number has been linked to Liliuokalani’s late brother, King Kalakaua, and his “action on opium licenses,” says the report Diplomatic And Congressional History: From Monarchy to Statehood, by the Naval Historical Research Branch. Earlier bribery scandals associated with Kalakaua— to the tune of $75,000, in one case—boded ill against the queen later on. Page four of the May 17, 1887 edition of the Hawaiian Gazette reads, “To cap the climax in the opium matter, the Attorney General
cold facts… backed by sixty odd pages of sworn affidavits, by fourteen persons…” However, a September 5, 1887 article in the San Francisco Chronicle states, “not one of the Honolulu journals dared to reprint the comments of the American press on the socalled revolution… the man who looks for facts in the Honolulu journals will not find them.” As for Liliuokalani, in Hawaii’s Story by Hawaii’s Queen, she writes of the days she was dethroned, making final contest against the opium scandals, saying, “the British government has long since adopted license instead of prohibition, and the statute proposed among the final acts of my government was drawn from one used in the British colonies; yet I have still to learn that there has been any proposition on the part of the pious people of London to dethrone Her Majesty Queen Victoria for issuing such licenses.”
here remains one more curl of smoke twisted between opium and the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom: Four and a half years later, on June 16, 1897, the Treaty of Annexation of Hawai’i was penned in duplicate in Washington D.C. Curiously, of only seven short articles, Article V. reads: “There shall be no further immigration of Chinese into the Hawaiian Islands, except upon such conditions as are now or may hereafter be allowed by the laws of the United States, and no Chinese, by reason of anything herein contained, shall be allowed to enter the United States from the Hawaiian Islands.” It is the only reference to race or national origin—of any sort, American, Hawaiian or otherwise—in the entirety of the treaty. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/upfront27

Pau For Now The New Year is ripe for change. But will we see any? “
was a warrior who thought I could bring peace. Sooner or later, though you always have to wake up.” - Jake Sully, Avatar
THE BIG BANG 2010 started with a bang. Literally. Like so many New Year’s Eves before, much of Hawaii became a simulated war zone, with fireworks and aerial explosions out of control. It’s local tradition, after all. And because of that simple fact, don’t hold your breath for a proposed fireworks ban, though one was introduced by four Oahu legislators and will be considered during this year’s session. It’s hard to imagine the majority of elected officials—let alone the public—waking up and smelling the sulfur. It just doesn’t work that way. Still, it’s hard to fathom how nostalgia continues to trump common sense. This year, a record 112 people—half of them children—were admitted to hospital emergency rooms with fireworks-related injuries. Among them were two Maui children who were severely burned and whose parents now face potential criminal charges, since permits require adult supervision. “For a payoff of $185,825, the city of Honolulu and the state of Hawaii are blatant sponsors of terrorism,” wrote a Kaneohe man to Honolulu Weekly. (Actual number of permits, a record 8,055, times $25 per permit, equals $201,375.) The man also wrote that the explosions were so severe in his neighborhood, his $900 Kamaka ukulele and some glasses “vibrated off the shelf and smashed on our floor.” But pyromaniac celebrants clearly don’t care about their neighbor’s animals cowering in terror, about those with asthma or other types of respiratory diseases gagging on smoke, about the litter, or the outbreaks of brush and house fires. They simply want to retain their right to make noise and blow stuff up. How cool is that? A ban just makes sense. Yet when it comes to controversial matters and forwardlooking initiatives, our elected officials are far better at discussion than action. Of course, since it’s voters’ responsibility to hold our decision-makers accountable, it’s appropriate to invoke the Walt Kelly quote from his Pogo comic strip: “We have met the enemy, and he is us.”
GET INVOLVED A friend recently directed me to a comment left on the Kauai Planning & Action Alliance Web site, describing the “Hawaii condition:” “It’s all about putting off changes as long as possible. We want action now. Example. The Department
Like Santa Claus, Rob is always watching...
of Land and Natural Resources recently estimated it would take $4 million and 2 years to take care of the damage to Polihale and reopen it to the public. Kaua‘i residents completed the job in 8 days with donated time, labor, equipment and supplies. Think about that one for a few minutes and then realize that the whole state government operates in the same manner. Personally, I think revolution is the solution. As it is, no one is held accountable. So the corruption continues and grows.”
Tavares, in an interview given to The Maui News in mid-December when she announced her bid for re-election, said that in a down-turned economy, she’s proud of the work her administration has done to help small businesses. Somebody pinch me, please—this must be a bad dream. Has she been so unwilling to listen to those in the community affected by her TVR shutdown that she doesn’t realize its broad impact to our fragile economy? Like the New Year’s celebrant, she
I like to think that hope springs eternal, that we will finally elect leaders who are true visionaries and are also adept enough at swimming upstream against bureaucratic currents to actually implement positive change. I like to think that hope springs eternal, that we will finally elect leaders who are true visionaries and are also adept enough at swimming upstream against bureaucratic currents to actually implement positive change. But in the 32 years I’ve been in Hawaii, I have yet to see it happen, with a few manini exceptions. Maybe 2010’s the year…or maybe not. At a BLNR meeting last Friday in Honolulu, a longtime friend and state employee shared that seeing the four island Mayors gathered to plead for the Transient Accommodations Tax revenues to be returned to Neighbor Islands sure looked to him like the Old Boy network was alive and well. (He was referring to their political style and backing, rather than the subject of county versus state revenues.) It is ironic that our own Mayor Charmaine Tavares would be asking for the revenues now, when she is mainly responsible for quashing the TAT pay-in generated by an estimated 1,000-plus vacation rentals and bed and breakfasts.
seems arrogant and uncaring of the cries of those who disagree with her mandate even as she blows up their livelihoods. There appears little middle ground, however, between those who like and dislike vacation rentals, even if properly regulated and taxed. Once again, it’s up to us all to get out and vote, or stop grumbling.
CH-CH-CHANGES On Monday, bloomberg.com and others reported that crude oil hit a 15-month high, at $83.67 per barrel. Former Maui resident Brad Parsons of alohaanalytics.blogspot.com, who posted the link, offered this succinct comment: “If this continues, you can forget about an economic recovery. For Hawaii, just watch the airfares climb and occupancy fall.” But wait, Brad. Are you saying we didn’t learn anything about self-sufficiency, replacing petroleum imports and diversifying our economy since oil first hit $100 a barrel, exactly two years ago? Or are you just saying what I’m thinking—that we
have not moved decisively enough, quickly enough, to provide Hawaii with a new and improved economic roadmap? What does it take for us to change our head-in-the-sand, stuck-in-the-mud consumptive ways? In last week’s interview with super-activist Julia Butterfly Hill, I related her belief (and mine) that to inspire people to take action and change, it takes a combination of information and inspiration. Alone, they don’t work. “You can show people a clear-cut,” said Julia, recounting her historic tree-sit to protect old-growth forests, “and it’s like a gut punch. Show them a pristine forest habitat, and they are like, ‘Oh my God, it’s so beautiful.’ Put the two together and people will respond.” I’m well aware that people have enough outrage in their lives and aren’t looking for more bad news about the direction of the human race or the fate of the planet we call home. The blockbuster movie Avatar is a blend of outrage and beauty, desperation and hopefulness. “Everything is backwards now, like out there is the true world and in here is the dream,” says protagonist Jake Sully, a wheelchair-bound ex-marine whose core reality is being tweaked by his interaction with the planet Pandora’s aboriginal culture, which recognizes the connectedness of all things and reveres the circle of life. The military protecting the corporate investment in the planet’s resources, however, have clearly never hugged a tree and felt the life energy therein. This is my 150th Rob Report in Maui’s last independent newspaper. I have been humbled and gratified by the opportunity to share thought, ideas, initiatives and blueprints for a better Maui, a better Hawaii and a better world. But now it’s time for change in my life as well. I’m launching a business this year, one of the coolest, best, green technologies I have found in many years of looking. I’m excited for the opportunity to share it, to become a part of the emerging green economy. The Rob Report will likely appear in a new form, sometime soon, in order to reach the most people in the most productive and interesting fashion. I am supremely grateful to Editor Jacob Shafer, and all the other folks at MauiTime who have helped along the way. And I’m big-time appreciative of the readers who provide feedback on a regular basis, letting me know they are inspired by what they read in my columns. Mahalo nui loa to all. Happy New Year, too. Pau for now—and don’t forget to vote. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/rr27

CANNIBALISM COMPLEX Natives of the Erromango section of the Pacific island Vanuatu recently held a formal â€œconciliationâ€? with the great-greatgrandson of the British missionary whom the islandersâ€™ ancestors ate when he came ashore in 1839. Charles Milner-Williamsâ€™s forebear, Rev. John Williams, was regarded as the most famous Christian missionary of the era. Vanuatan legislator Ralph Regenvanu told BBC News that cannibalism was traditionally a sacred warrior practice for â€œvanquishing a threat [and] absorbing the power of the enemy.â€? Nonetheless, he said, the island has long felt â€œguilt,â€? and even a â€œcomplex,â€? from killing and eating Rev. Williams. In penitence, Vanuatu symbolically gave the Williams family a seven-year-old girl, who will not be eaten but whose education Milner-Williams promised to underwrite.
MAJOR BOOZERS (1) In November, the Seattle Police Department, investigating a complaint about a beating, interviewed a 25-year-old man hospitalized after being found screaming in pain impaled on a metal fence. He said he had run away from a barroom fight and momentarily thought he was a â€œninja warriorâ€? capable of leaping the fence. (2) Sean McDowell, 24, was arrested in Ashland, Ore., after attempting to steal a 4-foot-tall stuffed giraffe from the front of a childrenâ€™s store. A police officer had witnessed an inebriated McDowell grab the giraffe and make simulated sexual movements, then walk away, and then return 90 minutes later to snatch the animal for good.
YOUâ€™RE NEVER TOO OLD FOR A DIVORCE While reporting on Britainâ€™s oldest newlyweds in November (husband 94, wife 87), the Daily Telegraph also noted that in 2008, Bertie Wood and her husband, Jessie, of Falmouth had decided to end their 36-year marriage, evidently at a point where they felt they needed a fresh start. Both were 97 years old at the time. Jessie has since died, and Bertie lives in a nursing home.
to his $50,000 annual pension even though he had pleaded guilty in 2006 to eight counts of arson (and allegedly confessed to 12 more). Boyle is known locally as â€œMatchesâ€? Boyle to distinguish him from his brother, John â€œQuartersâ€? Boyle, who is now in federal prison for bribery following the theft of millions of dollars in state toll-gate coins. Judge LeRoy Martin Jr. concluded that Matchesâ€™s arsons were wholly separate from his firefighting.
LIFEâ€™S A SNITCH Salvadorean citizen Ernesto Gamboa, who worked for 13 years in the Seattle area as a snitch for federal drug agents and contributed to at least 92 convictions for drug- and weapons-smuggling, was â€œfiredâ€? by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in May after asking the agency for regular employment. Gamboa originally entered the U.S. as a visitor but overstayed and now aspires merely to an â€œS visa,â€? granted to aliens who assist law enforcement. Not only did ICE deny that request but, according to a November Seattle Times report, the agency informed Gamboa that he should prepare to be deported.

cooled to form a land mass. So initially, Maui was a mass of molten and hardened lava. Every animal, every insect, every bird, every tree that ever came to this lovely island was an invasive species. That includes man. As for who is the largest destroyer of unique ecosystems, we can once again point to man—not feral dogs, not snakes, not pigs, not cats. This leads to a bigger question: do we destroy one species to supposedly save another? Because if that is true, we would have to start with human beings. Now, on to the cats and the near hysteria they seem to inspire in people who are fond of stating, “they are killing the birds.” What about the loss of specialized habit to development, roads, condos, hotels and homes as man continues to turn pristine areas into concrete, bricks and mortar? Yes, cats do kill birds, though studies have also shown that many of the birds killed are old, injured, sick and/ or left the nest too early to survive on their own. But hey, cats are also killing and—studies have shown—in far larger numbers, mice, rats, roaches, centipedes and many bugs that drive most humans into a fearful state. Can you really imagine Maui without any community (loose, roaming, undomesticated) cats? Studies have shown that when the majority of cats were removed from islands, these islands were overrun with rodents and insects. Wow, what a paradise we would have without the cats. Spread of disease was mentioned at the Friends of Haleakala presentation, so I think it is very important to note that the bubonic plague was spread throughout Europe by fleas on rats. The hantavirus is also spread by rodents. Nowhere in the studies or literature does it state that these dreaded diseases were spread by cats. Other diseases mentioned at the Friends of Haleakala meeting included typhus, E. coli, Bartonella, toxoplasmosis. Fern Duvall said that toxoplasmosis has been detected in nene geese, spinner dolphins and monk seals, so I guess that means we should stay out of the ocean. E. coli has been detected in many of the foods we eat including various meats and vegetables. Guess that means we should stop eating those foods. Typhus is spread by fleas and lice. Bartonella is spread by infected fleas. If you have been paying attention, you will note that many of these diseases are spread by fleas, which are found on rats and mice. So take away the freeroaming cats (many of which are treated for fleas) that prey on rats and mice and you have a rampant explosion of fleas on rats and mice who can and do jump off their main prey and bite humans. Viola, you have an epidemic. The now-proven method of dealing with and curtailing the population of freeroaming, un-owned, community cats in cat colonies is through Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR), along with constant monitoring by a caretaker or caretakers who provide food, water, medical treatment and sterilization to any new colony member. Studies have shown that over time, these colonies do decrease in size, although there will always be people who dump new cats. As a lover of all animals, I believe cat lovers and bird lovers can work together to insure
that endangered species are protected. Cats can be relocated from extremely sensitive areas. Fencing can be placed around ground-nesting bird sites. Here’s a recent example of cat and bird lovers cooperating: Cimmeron Morrissey identified an explosion of neglected homeless and feral cats living along the bay trail in Foster City, California and was inspired to take action. There were 174 cats living along the trail at the time. She began trapping the cats to have them sterilized. Kittens and friendly adult cats were adopted out. Foster City officials had also noticed the cats, as had the Sequoia Audubon Society, which wanted to protect local birds. In 2004, a collaboration between the Foster City, Homeless Cat Network and the Sequoia Audubon Society was formed to create Project Bay Cat, which was developed to curb the cat population’s growth through aggressive spay/neuter and adoption programs, as well as protect bird habitat and keep the path’s landscape debris-free. Thanks to these efforts, the colony has shrunk by 35 percent due to spay/neuter, vaccination and adoption efforts, 72 cats/kittens now have loving homes, 95 percent of the cats have been altered, the cats are healthy and cared for and the local bird population is thriving. Please note that not one cat was killed to save the birds. Here was a successful plan that did not involve murdering cats. Heck, they’ve been killing cats on Maui for 50-plus years. Has it worked? Intelligent, caring people on both sides can work together to provide solutions that do not involve destroying one species to save another. In the interests of keeping this commentary short and readable, I have not included the names of the studies from which I got my data, however I would be happy to provide this information; contact me at email@example.com. In summation, as a person who cares what happens to cats and birds, I believe the solution lies in working together to reduce the cat population through sterilization and in finding ways to keep the cats out of areas where there are endangered species. We need the cats to control the rodent population on Maui. If they were not around, we would see a huge influx of rodent flea-borne illnesses and more human infections caused by spider and centipede bites and the diseases spread by roaches. These free-roaming cats actually provide a wondrous benefit for humans.

12 January 14, 2010
busting dealers and users. And, though they may not represent a majority within their profession, some cops are beginning to break ranks, to publicly question the wisdom and effectiveness of drug prohibition.
Take David Bratzer, a Canadian police ofﬁcer and a member of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition [LEAP], an international nonproﬁt organization made up of current and former law enforcement ofﬁcials who
support the legalization and regulation of marijuana and other drugs. We asked Bratzer—who was recently on Maui—to talk about LEAP, legalization and what the drug war looks like from the trenches.
You’re a law enforcement ofﬁcer advocating for the legalization of a substance that’s a Schedule One narcotic in the United States. Isn’t that a contradiction? Not at all. We need to consider what drug prohibition has done to the vital profession of law enforcement. It has divided police officers from the communities we serve, alienated us from young people, sent our call loads through the roof, placed huge financial strains on police budgets and, sometimes, my colleagues have been injured or murdered while enforcing these drug laws. Every police officer should question whether the War on Drugs is worth fighting, particularly when there are other policy options that would result in less crime, addiction, disease and death. What was the turning point that led you to support legalization? It was a gradual process. During the police academy my instructors didn’t focus on the issue and they certainly didn’t encourage recruits to think outside the box. One turning point was the recent gang war in Vancouver over control of the drug trade. That was eye opening. As I attended various patrol calls I began to ask myself: was this incident related to drug use or was it related to the prohibition of drugs? And usually it was the latter. I began to research drug policy on my own. I was surprised to discover that even though I was a police officer, I didn’t know as much about drugs as I thought I did. I publicly joined Law Enforcement Against Prohibition in November 2008 after speaking with my police chief. It’s a fantastic organization and I have no regrets about joining. Do you think the War on Drugs has been lost? The War on Drugs is an unmitigated disaster. In the past four decades the United States has spent more than one trillion tax dollars on drug enforcement and made 39 million arrests for non-violent drug offences. And for what? Illegal drugs are now cheaper, stronger and more available than they were at the start of the drug war. Inner cities throughout the United States have been devastated by the War on Drugs. Mexico is in danger of becoming a failed state because of the drug cartel violence. Opium profits are funding the insurgency in Afghanistan. Would any rational person consider this a success? What would a sensible marijuana policy look like? LEAP doesn’t have an official position on how drugs should be regulated. We simply point out that drug prohibition does not work. That said, there are some organizations doing fantastic work in this area. In particular, the Transform Drug Policy Foundation just released a free online book titled After the War on Drugs: Blueprints for Regulation. It examines a wide range of drug policy options and I highly recommend it.
OK, let’s run through a few classic anti-legalization arguments. First, legalization will make it easier for kids and teens to get pot. I disagree. Look at a place like the Netherlands. They have decriminalized marijuana, meaning that small quantities are legal for the end-user to purchase. Their population has a lifetime usage rate of marijuana that is half that of the United States. That is [based on] data from the World Mental Health Surveys, as compiled by the World Health Organization. So why is this? First, the Netherlands has managed to make drug use boring for young people. There is nothing rebellious about smoking a joint in Amsterdam. Second, the Netherlands uses regulatory measures to control the sale of marijuana to consumers. For example, the cannabis coffee shops have age minimums, alcohol is banned and
trafficking more dangerous drugs and in larger quantities. They become entrenched in a criminal lifestyle as professional drug dealers. Eventually they wind up dead or in prison. But consider what would happen if all drugs were legal and regulated for adult use. One might still see the occasional adolescent marijuana dealer, but the career option of becoming a mid- or high-level criminal drug dealer simply wouldn’t exist. Being a teenage pot dealer would be a deadend job rather than an entry point for gang membership and a life of organized crime. So what is LEAP’s stance on harder drugs? [LEAP] believes that all drugs should be legal and regulated. The argument in favor of regulating these drugs is not that they’re harmless, but rather that they’re so dangerous
I think it will happen gradually in the U.S and Canada. Hopefully significant change will occur within my career as a police officer. I’m a big supporter of incremental reform and that reform should be based on scientific evidence and public consultation. Economic pain will probably drive a lot of these changes. The United States is spending roughly $69 billion a year on drug enforcement and my sense is that your country can no longer afford the policy of prohibition. That said, I’m not sure what the budget situation is like in Hawaii. Perhaps your state has a lot of extra cash lying around that it can use to prosecute nonviolent marijuana offenders.
Nope. But speaking of Hawaii, our Governor, Linda Lingle, has spoken out against the state’s voter-approved medical marijuana law, citing federal prohibition. Do you think no s nt ha me rn ve go e th on as long as federal prohibition is iti ib oh pr Under o in place, it will undermine state wh er al de ug dr control.

North Shore Escape Paia eatery offers a quick, margarita-aided getaway PHOTOS BY SEAN MICHAEL HOWER
Milagros Food Co. 3 Baldwin Ave., Paia 579-8755 Open daily, 8am-10pm
ne of the quickest ways to a staycation on Maui is to head to Paia, with its wealth of restaurants and shops and laid-back North shore vibe. Few places exemplify this better than Milagros. Situated at the crossroads of North shore and Upcountry at the intersection of Hana Highway where Baldwin Avenue begins its trek up Haleakala to Makawao, Milagros boasts an always-eclectic crowd and a tangible chemistry that lets you know it’s time to take a load off and have a margarita. What attracts folks to the restaurant’s cozy lanai isn’t the people-watching—that’s just a fringe benefit—but the great food. Specializing in Latin and Southwestern cuisine, the lunch and dinner menu have plenty of signature items that fall in the must-try category. Start with the fresh fish. They buy fresh local fish daily from Fresh Island Fish Co. and feature a blackened seared ahi burrito that’s like no other. The fresh ahi flavor is allowed to peak with the smoky blackened spices that compliment the also-smoky homemade salsa. Then all of it pops with the sweet chile sauce. The burrito is rolled with black beans and Spanish rice, plus cheese and cilantro. Served in a blackened BLT, a salmon salad or as an entree during the dinner hours, the various Pacific Northwest-farmed salmon dishes are decidedly not Southwestern. Yet the salmon is amazing in flavor and texture, served with Tupelo honey flown in from Florida and covered in local macadamia nuts. The crunchy buttery mac nuts and sweet sticky honey are light enough to combine with the flakey grilled fish and create a completely new taste

Speaking of which, the bar at Milagros is fully stocked with an astonishing selection of tequila. I have to admit I’m not a tequila expert (or even close to it), but I was ready to receive an education. Ultra premiums like the Gran Patron Platinum and the Asom Broso Anejo aren’t available for margaritas, and are served in snifter glasses for sipping. Margaritas I’m more familiar with, and they have 10 different kinds, from Lilikoi to traditional to mango to their signature DaKine. House tequila expert and Best of Maui-winning bartender Dave Bauss serves them up perfectly blended or on the rocks; I’m making a mental note to come back for a tequila tour. ■

The Farzad Side From a jazz CD beneďŹ ting Iraq War veterans to his expletive-laced, stream-of-consciousness rants, Farzad Azad leaves an impression
he Java Jazz experience is an icosahedron of multi-sensory inundation. An icosahedron, for those unfamiliar, is a 20-sided polyhedron that occurs as both a natural viral structure and as the magic in the Magic 8-Ball. Similarly, Java Jazz has an organic ability to rest comfortably in a multitude of things. As I venture out West to the venueâ€™s Lower Honoapiilani Road location, my intentions are purely musical. But by my return across the Paliâ€”with the aftertaste of damnedgood (flourless) chocolate cake in my throat and the musings of owner Farzad Azad still rattling around in my brainâ€”I am happily befuddled, unsure what direction to take. Could this be an Arts & Entertainment piece with an element of Food & Drink? A straight CD review? Or is it something else entirely? It is the impression of Java Jazz that has me inclinedâ€”resoundinglyâ€”toward the latter. The place can only be likened to that heady space in lucid dreams where all the objects, passions and minutiae of the day have accumulated into one, purgatory boutique. From the dĂŠcor to the dishes to the live or piped music, it is at once all my favorite travel memoriesâ€”slides plucked from my mindâ€™s Kodak carousel and layered upon another to form new dimensional scenery. The walls are blanketed in fine art (mostly Azadâ€™sâ€”my favorite, â€œZoya,â€? is a Peggy Hopper acid trip), Polaroid photos and Barbie dolls en masseâ€” kaleidoscope-lit by a gorgeous wine-bottle chandelier of Azadâ€™s design (installed eight months ago, a newer addition to this 10-year strong establishment). Azad has also created a CD titled Whatâ€™s Your Function? Java Jazz Volume 1, solely for the benefit of his â€œSoldier Appreciation Vacationâ€? program. Since 2007, Azad has brought Purple Heart-decorated veterans of the Iraq War (and their wives, of course) on seven-day, all-expenses paid vacations to Maui. â€œWe cannot delete the memory of the unwanted war from their memory bank but we can sure install new happy memories and thatâ€™s the least we can do for our veterans,â€? states the programâ€™s mission. To date, Azadâ€™s efforts and the sale of his CD have given new memories to 14 individuals. Given the good cause, the six-track disc is a worthwhile purchase ($15). At its most superficial, itâ€™s a take-home version of the eclectic vibe of Java Jazz that canâ€™t be wrapped in a doggie bag. All tracks are orginals, written, produced, arranged, mixed and performed by Azad who is, impressively, self-taught (a fact that helps to forgive that the first and second tracks have a painfully similar self-produced beatâ€”my only real complaint). The CD also draws on

*With Valid Hawaii I.D. Limit one per person Not valid with other offers
the talents of the Java Jazz â€™ohana, including jazz pianist Renee Alonso. Alonso leant his skills to the fifth track, titled â€œDeReggaed,â€? and is on keys the night I visit the restaurant. In the white-edged mirror propped up over the piano, I watch his slender fingers rolling along to, as he describes, â€œanother sad song.â€? The saddest part is that his own CD (which I acquired for review at the same time as Whatâ€™s Your Function?) does ill justice to the soulful variety of his onstage work. Meanwhile, for me to quote Azad in any way (save for one word: â€œshyboomskiâ€?) would lend to inaccurate representationâ€” as much on my behalf as on his. With an intent gaze from behind his glasses tipped low on his nose, heâ€™s all sailor-tongued stream of consciousness. Highly socially and politically charged, the entertaining rant flows from war to weed to his momâ€™s eggplant azemat to Madame Pele to cum. So, though juicy, Iâ€™ll refrain. A conversation with Azad is simply an experience best had for yourself. Further on the topic of quotes and Azad is the CDâ€™s most notable feature: the mixing of historical speeches as the centerpiece of the music. â€œSpecial thanks to JFK, MLK, Einstein, Nixon, Clinton and George Bush for their great quotes,â€? read the liner notes. While Martin Luther King, Jr. laces the second track, â€œDreamer,â€? his words also add surprising closure to the bouncing, Lewinsky-inspired track, â€œBooty Call.â€? Nixon, naturally, inspires the track titled â€œThe Crook,â€? with a gypsy-flamenco, spy flick-inspired riff. The historical figures not only lend their quotes, but their images too. The discâ€™s cover art features the heads of each attached to aloha-shirt and boxer-clad forms around a
table, sharing shots of Jack Daniels while John F. Kennedy and a pack of Zig Zags roll one up on what appears to be the Constitution. Inside, are 12 Commandments, â€œThe New American Commandments as of January 1st, 2007.â€? It begins with (I.) â€œThou shalt not be a hyphenated-American,â€? (Azad is vehement about the irrelevance of being anything other than just American), and rounds out the middle with warm stuff like (VII.) â€œThou shalt take care of teachers,â€? and (VIII.) â€œThou shalt take care of police officers and nurses too,â€? (heâ€™s generous with his fare for those public servants). But it is in the final few commandmentsâ€”(X.) â€œThou shalt not be scared into submission by the loss of our soldiers in any war,â€? and (XI.) â€œThou shalt not be afraid of the draftâ€?â€”as well as with the final track, â€œAmericaâ€?â€”where the very tangible-sounding voices of soldiers who have benefited from the program are dubbed alongside John Wayne reciting the Pledge of Allegianceâ€”that the essence of the CD and its goals crystallize. The issues we face as a country are amorphous, and our responsesâ€”artistic and otherwiseâ€”should be, too. Born in a place like Java Jazz, Azadâ€™s CD and â€œSoldier Appreciation Vacationâ€? are fine examples of this enduring truth. â–

Strange, Lovely ‘Doctor’ Heath Ledger’s ﬁnal ﬁlm a dazzling, moving wonder The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Rated PG-13/122 min.
erry Gilliam doesn’t make timid movies. Even with notable misfires, the former Monty Python member continues to solidify his status as one of the world’s boldest, bravest and most original filmmakers. His latest had a famously troubled production, with the death of Heath Ledger causing the project to shut down, then start back up again with a reworked approach to the story and Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law alternating in the role Ledger plays. The result is not only a seamless reconstruction, but a return to form for Gilliam, who hasn’t made a film this terrific since 12 Monkeys. Christopher Plummer stars in the title role, the owner of a theater on wheels who travels the globe and lures audiences into his “Imaginarium,” the world on the other
side of his magic mirror that shows you your dreams and nightmares. Parnassus has been doing this show for hundreds of years, and he’s been relentlessly pursued by the Devil (Tom Waits, perfectly cast) over an ill-conceived bargain they made long ago.
A young actor named Tony (Ledger, whose introductory scene will shock many) joins Parnassus’s troupe, brings an updated look and approach to the weary stage show and strives to keep his secret, which is equally Faustinian and sinister, from Parnassus. Ledger’s final performance anchors the film and, as in Gilliam’s The Brothers Grimm, the director brings out the actor’s lively, creative side—a far cry from some of the stiff, uninspired star vehicles he helmed during his too-brief career. The added technique of having three other actors play Tony whenever he steps into the Imaginarium works remarkably well, with Depp funny and dapper as a woman’s ultimate fantasy, Law giving a manic, cartoon-like performance and Ferrall getting the most screen time, embodying a corrupt moral figure (yes, this all makes sense when you see the film). The only drawback is that, once Ferrall takes over the part during the film’s climax, Ledger disappears from the movie. It would have been nice to see Ledger one last time but, of course, there was no
unused footage of him left to incorporate. Though things get a tad cartoonish at times, as with Gilliam’s masterpieces (The Fisher King, Brazil, Monty Python and the Holy Grail), his overwhelming visuals and complex, layered storytelling complement each other and don’t derail the narrative. This isn’t another Tideland or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, where you walk away feeling assaulted by a swarm of psychedelic images. This Faust-based story is a grand tale with fantastic special effects, sly humor and a stunning, moving ending that is both poetic and bittersweet. Plummer brings a tragic dimension to Parnassus and Verne Troy (yes, Mini Me) is hilarious as a scenestealing sideman. Once again, Gilliam has visualized the impossible and presents wonders that are amazing to dream, let alone create. I go to his films to see things I’ve never seen before—and he doesn’t disappoint. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/ﬁlm27

This Week's Picks Barr None
Friday (January 15), Hard Rock Cafe, Lahaina, 10pm, $40-$75
Friday (January 15)-Saturday (January 16), McCoy Studio Theater, MACC, Kahului, 7:30pm, $22
Guess who has the after-Shatner slot in the Hard Rock Cafe’s celeb series to benefit World Hunger Year? Roseanne Barr. One of those necessary/unnecessary surnames, huh? If you’ve been spelunking for so long that precious Pick space need be wasted with background on this visiting celeb, then you are too far-Gollum to be helped. It’s Roseanne. The Domestic Goddess. If you and 99 friends are also domestic goddesses, you can decorate yourselves with 2.25- or 3.5-inch buttons ($129.99$181.99, 100 qty)—emblazoned with a magical yellow glove—from roseanneworld.com. However, the logo stein ($18.19) or BBQ apron ($21.49) might be more appropriate. And practical (sort of). And practically any logo-applicable thingamajig is available thanks to CafePress—116 products, by my count (exclusive of the 113 items in her Hello Piggy line, which includes Made in the U.S.A. thongs for $10.39). And yes, “YES WE CANnabis” products, too (a notably fancier, more select line). But the best thing Roseanne World brings us is Roseanne’s blog. In anticipation of her arrival, let us close with these Christmas-day sentiments, posted at 11:07am: “crazy woman dressed in red… breaks through the barricades and knocks over the sane man in a bejewelled dress who approaches a throne on a baccillis [I think she means basilisk] to tell the poor to have more children. Merry Satan, I mean Santa! / It is up to the Bi-Polar now, to save the world for righteousness sake, which is the manic high itself!!! crazy women dressed in red—million bitches march apr. 1 Washington DC. / JEWESS WE CAN!!!” 667-5278
For four years, Peahi-born Jon Shirota wrote diligently to Lowney Turner Handy, trying to gain acceptance to The Handy Writers’ Colony in Marshall, Illinois. “When Lowney telegraphed him to come to Marshall in 1963, Shirota immediately quit his job of six and a half years and drove more than half way across the country,” writes Ray Elliott, president of the James Jones Literary Society. It was during his final year at Bringham Young University that Shirota read From Here to Eternity (authored by Jones, Lowney’s “most famous protégé”), and says of his subsequent inspiration, “I have a book in me that’s better than that.” In 1966, two years after Handy’s death (he was one of the last under her tutelage), Shirota penned Lucky Come Hawai’i, followed by Pineapple White in 1974—after which he began playwriting. His latest, Voices from Okinawa, was published in the summer 2009 edition of Manoa: A Pacific Journal of International Writing (the University of Hawaii’s literary journal, currently celebrating it’s 20th anniversary). The East West Players debuted the play in Los Angeles in February 2008, while this weekend, Mauians can enjoy Kumu Kahua Theater’s staging, bringing Shirota’s work back home. 242-7469.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was signed into law by Ronald Regan in 1983 and first observed in 1986. However, it was not until 2000 that all 50 states officially recognized the holiday (one holdout was the Commonwealth of Virgina, which until ’00 celebrated Lee-JacksonKing Day… Like, Robert E. Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson. Seriously. Wiki it.). Hawaii, and the Valley Isle, have had no such reservations. At 8:30am, the African Americans on Maui group will convene the Stone of Hope Monument (200 S. High St.) for a silent march to Cafe Marc Aurel (28 N. Market St.), where the event will continue with speakers, African dancing, drumming and entertainment until noon. Or, make a day of it with a stroll (or roll) down Main to Kaahumanu Avenue, to check in with the African American Heritage Foundation of Maui, which will meet at Maui Community College (310 W. Kaahumanu Ave.) for their Peace & Justice March to Ho‘aloha Park (1 E. Kaahumanu Ave.). Not only is the foundation serving a free meal to attendees, they are simultaneously conducting a drive for the Maui Food Bank. So in addition to preparing for the day by packing mats, hats, sunscreen and shoes, please be generous in your donation of non-perishable goods. While the march begins promptly at 11am, be sure to meet at MCC by 10:30am. The event’s esteemed guest speaker, Reverend Robert Graetz, counted Rosa Parks among his close personal friends, wrote Montgomery A White Preacher’s Memoir and—along with his wife Jeannie (who will also be attending)— played an integral role in Alabama’s Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955-’56.

Are you into acupuncture needles or do you need a lollipop after a visit to the doctor? Did you know that sea cucumber is an aphrodisiac or did you just scream when you squished one with your foot at Launiupoko? Even if you aren’t prepared to dive headfirst into those particular Chinese customs, you can still enjoy some of Shanghai’s finest (and strangest) entertainment. The New Shanghai Circus is once again visiting Maui, bringing with it unicycles, spinning plates balanced on bamboo, human pyramids, swinging ropes, towers of chairs and, of course, skillful and fearless contortionists who are guaranteed to leap over, through and inside all of the above objects, and even each other. All this will be accompanied by rousing music and dazzling special effects. Think of it as going to see a modern dance show, only infinitely more exciting and exotic. And please, don’t try this at home, unless you’re in the mood for a visit to the chiropractor. 242-7469, mauiarts.org [Sierra Brown]

Da Kine Calendar BIG SHOWS VOICES FROM OKINAWA BY JON SHIROTA - Daily, Jan 15. Written by Maui-born playwright Jon Shirota, “Voices From Okinawa” tells the story of Kama Hutchins, an American of Okinawan ancestry who teaches English to locals of all ages in Okinawa. He bypasses traditional teaching methods by having his students relate personal stories to the class. The tales reveal the students’ conﬂicted attitudes toward the American soldiers stationed on their island. With comedy and drama, the play takes a twist as the teacher Kama learns more about his own cultural heritage from his students. Note: The playwright’s father left Okinawa in 1907, along with three brothers, and became a pineapple grower on Maui. The brothers eventually returned to Okinawa, but Shirota’s family remained.This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

He got the photo-bug after working on the school newspaper and yearbook. Joining the Lahaina Arts Society in 2002 gave him the initial outlet to show his nature images. Now, several years later, the main focus of his work is the beauty of Hawaii. He hopes he can capture the inherent majesty of the islands and share it with the visitors who come, but may not have the time to explore it as much as he has. “There is too much beauty and not enough time to see it all”.

email@example.com CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) How you used to dread your turn to give a speech in front of the class, or run up and kick the ball, or do anything where you might fall ﬂat on your face in front of people! It’s still not your favorite thing, but you buckled down your anxiety and got through it all those other times, and eventually got much better at that kind of thing. Don’t let your worries get the best of you now. This time, your turn on the spot will be like most of those other times; you might puke before you go on stage, but you’ll get through it and, in fact, shine.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) A teacher friend of mine designed a multiple choice test in which every correct answer was “A.” He put the easiest questions last, so by the time his students got the end, they were ﬂipping back to ﬁgure out which of the earlier questions they’d surely screwed up. Besides how hilarious his diabolical plan is, it also reminds me of some of the stuff you’ll experience this week, since people and events will deﬁnitely be conspiring to make you second-guess yourself. Trust your mind and gut, though. The right answer is still the right answer, no matter how improbable it seems.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Don’t take everything so personally. Even when a relationship doesn’t work out, it doesn’t have to be your fault (or theirs, really). Half of what makes a relationship satisfying is who you get to be in that couple; if you don’t like which parts of yourself get expressed, it doesn’t matter how great the other person is. If you feel funny, generous, and kind, however, it’ll go a long way towards making you happy in the relationship. A compatible pair isn’t always about how hot, smart, and amazing you are—it’s at least as much about how hot, smart, and amazing your partner feels when s/he’s with you.
ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)
Mahalo to our over 1,300 Facebook friends and counting...
Try not to compare yourself to others. There’ll always be someone with a better ass, sharper language skills, or a bigger wallet. Luckily, this isn’t a competition. Or, if it is, it’s one you can win just by being uniquely you, by expressing the quirks (both “good” and “bad) that make you stand out from the crowd. Once the only criteria for “winning” this contest is being yourself, there’s no competition; who, after all, is better at being you than you are? So, chill out, and stop giving your supposed competition the evil eye. They can’t beat you at this game.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Either be serious about what you’re doing, or don’t bother doing it at all. If you’re not gung ho about getting it done right, you might as well give up right now, since you’ll just fail, anyway. This is a full-throttle or full-stop situation. Have you decided just what your level of commitment is? Do you really care about seeing this through? This is a good week to ﬁgure that out. I’m not sure that your decision will have much impact on your short-term future, one way or the other. However, what you decide right now could have a tremendous impact on your long-term outlook, so when making that judgment, don’t be ﬂippant.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) When it’s cold enough for your pipes to freeze, you need to keep the water running. Just a drip will do, but fail to leave the tap open and you’ll be sorry. Creative juices are much the same way. They can dry up or freeze up easily at times—and this is certainly one of those dangerous moments. Keep them ﬂowing or risk a creative lock-up that could last until spring. As with pipes, just a drip will do, but make sure you do a little something to inspire your creative ﬂow each and every day.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Don’t be afraid to proclaim yourself an expert. You are one, in this particular area, and can speak with authority based on fairly extensive knowledge and experience. In fact, not speaking up would be doing a disservice to those who could truly beneﬁt from your wisdom. Being too shy to speak up, so hesitant that you speak up too late, or too stingy to bother sharing whatever you’re got is pretty lame and embarrassing. There’s really no reason to keep your hard-won lessons to yourself, so please offer them to those who need your wise advice.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) I counseled Cancers to own their own authority, but I’m going to give you the opposite advice: stand down. You may think you know everything, and you’re not afraid to act as if you do. Often that ends up with you eating your own words, which is bad enough, but occasionally you have the potential to talk someone into a bad situation that you can’t easily get them out of. Therefore, make a special effort to think carefully before you speak this week, and especially before you exert your own special brand of persuasion. You may believe you’re acting in someone’s best interest, but unless you’re sure, please leave well enough alone.
VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Never say die. The game’s not over until the timer runs out, and so—even if it seems hopeless— you should play as if you have a chance at winning. Playing to lose will only yield a loss for sure. Playing to win in this particular scenario will mean you’ll still probably lose, but at least you have a chance. Sure, at this point you’re grasping at the thinnest of straws, but it’s better than just giving up. Assess your best prospect, no matter how unlikely or difﬁcult to implement, and go for it. Losing should not even be on the menu until it’s served, and you have no choice left but to eat it.
LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Miners used to bring canaries into coal mines with them to give them advance warning about the quality of the air. If the bird dropped dead, the miners knew to evacuate or risk the same fate. You can apply the same principle in certain situations you might ﬁnd yourself this week; check out who’s there, and why, and how that reﬂects on you. Are the “canaries” dead or just having a wild time? That should give you some idea of whether it’s safe to stay, or time to get the hell out—or whether sticking around has just the right level of risk and adventure.
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You should be able to be fully you, uncensored and unrestricted, with the people around you. That doesn’t mean exercising all your meanest and most sadistic impulses without restraint; just that unduly holding yourself back from your full potential because other people can’t handle it is unhealthy on many levels. Is that happening? If so, ﬁnd a solution right away. It could be as simple as simply asking whoever’s holding you back to mind their own business and just cut it out. However, it could also turn out to be as painful—if liberating—as cutting them out.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) One of your best qualities is not taking yourself too seriously. If there’s a laugh to be had, even at your own expense, you’ll usually want to make sure people get it. That’s awfully sweet and generous of you, and just the kind of quality that you’ll want to go out of your way to display this week. It’s much more likely to impress and attract people than showing off any of your many stellar qualities ever could. The ability to laugh at yourself is highly underrated, and, apparently, very attractive. Keep that in mind this week.
