The Week in Review HYPER LOCAL Over the last 13 years, MauiTime has sparked its share of controversy. We're an alt weekly; it's part of the job description. But, during my tenure at least, nothing has matched the uproar set off by the October 2009 Zombie Tavares cover, which featured a rather gruesome caricature of the Mayor by freelance artist Len Peralta. Many were offended (my favorite was an elderly woman who called to tell me exactly where I could stick the brains that were depicted oozing out of Tavares's mouth) while others appreciated the morbid humor. We stood behind the cover through criticism and a First Amendment battle with the County, and now it has become not just our most controversial issue but our most decorated as well. In April, as previously mentioned in this space, Peralta and Art Director Chris Skiles received an award of merit from AAF Hawaii. Last week, a collection of our covers, including Zombie Tavares, was featured on the Society of Publication Designers' Web site. Then, this week, the cover was singled out as a finalist for a national Association of Alternative Newsweeklies award. Guess zombies really are all the rage.... Kudos to Maui-bred filmmaker Joel Moffett whose short film, Poi Dogs, has screened at several prestigious festivals in the last six months, including the Berlin International Film Festival and Robert De Niro's Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Now, in a fitting homecoming, Poi Dogs will make its Hawaii premiere at the Maui Film Festival. (Look for complete MFF listings in next week's issue.)... Oh, as long as I'm doling out strokes: Props to the eight Maui County musicians— Willie K, Anuhea Jenkins, Uluwehi Guerrero, Amy Hanaiali'i, the Hula

Honeys, Ekolu, Raiatea Helm and Jeff Peterson—who took home Na Hoku Hanohano awards. As Associate Editor and Music Scene maven Anu Yagi said while discussing the awards the morning after, it's a credit to the strength and diversity of the Valley Isle's (often overlooked) talent....

LOCAL “The best tactic to combat terrorist attacks against the United States is to look honestly at the reasons those the government calls terrorists give for why they choose to conduct violent acts against the United States. I think we as citizens need to challenge the notion that the Bush Administration endlessly stated that

YouTube clip showing people being taken off one of the ships. If this same scenario had played out with any other Middle Eastern nation, you can bet the U.S. government would have been quick to denounce the attack and demand Wright's release. Instead, the response has been mostly silence. Certainly makes Wright's January remarks chillingly prescient.... Throughout the special election campaign, Charles Djou tried to paint himself as an independent (small “i”; he did run, and win, as a Republican). I had my doubts— and still do—but credit to the newly minted Hawaii Congressman for breaking with his party and voting to repeal the idiotic “don't ask, don't tell” policy regarding

Rep. Djou apparently believes gays should be able to fight for their country, but not get married when they come home. 'they hate us and our way of life.' What is more accurate in my opinion is that many people around the world are willing to challenge U.S. policies, particularly the blind acceptance of anything that Israel does to Palestinians.” That was Ret. Col. Ann Wright of Oahu, a former State Department ambassador who quit her job on the eve of the Iraq invasion in 2004, in a January MauiTime interview. This week, Wright was reportedly captured by Israeli forces while attempting to take supplies to the war-torn Gaza Strip. Nine activists were killed when a convoy of aid ships was attacked by Israel's military, according to a Los Angeles Times dispatch. Later, the Honolulu Advertiser reported, a friend of Wright's identified her on a

gays in the military. Of course, what this means is that Djou—who expressed staunch opposition to Hawaii's civil union bill— believes gays should be allowed to fight for their country, but not get married when they come home....

Wastewater injection wells are decimating Maalaea’s reef—but the County wants to conduct more studies

$575 million

Amount developer Everett Dowling and Morgan Stanley paid for the resort in 2007

n 2008, faced with studies linking nutrients from wastewater injection wells and septic systems from Maalaea condominiums to a drastic decline in coral reef health, then-Councilmember Michelle Anderson worked with U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono to acquire federal funding to, “Define an immediate solution for alternative disposal of wastewater and domestic sewage.”

badly degraded habitat overgrown by algae and with little surviving coral,” concluded the DAR presentation. Eleven condominiums at Maalaea produce approximately 250,000 gallons of wastewater and sewage per day, which is injected into more than 20 wells, the deepest of which is only about 75 feet. State Department of Health, Safe Drinking

As late as 1993, coral reef cover was estimated at 50-75 percent in the area. Cover is now reduced to 8 percent. But after being awarded an appropriation of more than $184,000, the County Department of Environmental Management took a big step backward, hiring a consultant to do more water quality testing rather than devising a plan to address retiring the wells and sewage treatments, approved and constructed in the 1970s. Questions arose at County Council on May 7, when a routine agenda from the Director of Finance transmitting 33 contracts elicited discussion and closer scrutiny. Now the matter is to be reviewed in the Council’s Infrastructure Management Committee on Monday, June 7. The original funding request, titled “Maalaea Coral Reef and Preservation,” acknowledged that “scientifically quantified studies already conducted over 8 years” link land-based nutrients to coral reef degradation. The University of Hawaii Botany Department and USGS have both conducted research confirming the effects of wastewater plumes percolating into the ocean, resulting in dense growths of macroalgae. The Department of Land and Natural Resources’ Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) has conducted monitoring since 1999, in partnership with the Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program. In a presentation to the County Council in July 2007, DAR Education Specialist Russell Sparks described a “total system collapse at Maalaea.” In 1972 Maalaea coral reefs were described as “striking in their diversity and in the presence of rare coral species.” As late as 1993, coral reef cover was estimated at 50-75 percent in the area. Cover is now reduced to 8 percent. “[I]n just a few decades, the Maalaea reef has transformed from a healthy and diverse ecosystem into a

Water Branch data show that six wells are less than 50 feet below the surface, and a dozen others are no deeper than 60 feet. The Maalaea Triangle Development, constructed in the mid- to late 1990s, adds another 50,000 gallons of nutrient-rich water daily, though their injection well is 290 feet. In formulating their Request For Proposal (RFP) for the Maalaea Coral Reef Degradation Study, it appears the County flip-flopped the original goals of the project—to determine solutions and alternative means of wastewater and sewage disposal—into a scope of work that elevated “conduct additional study” and “monitor and compare pollution and nutrient concentrations” above seeking immediate solutions. Even so, it’s surprising that the RFP contract winner, Marine Research Consultants, Inc., wrote a proposal that in no way refers to Scope of Work point four, “evaluate and define alternative disposal solutions for wastewater,

domestic sewage, cesspool, septic tank, and injection well systems.” Oceanographer and Maalaea resident Dr. Thomas Royer offered a critical evaluation of the proposal awarded the contract for additional studies. While a good background for future studies, Royer concluded, “it should not be expected to serve as a basis for a remediation plan.” “[Lead researcher Dr. Steve] Dollar et al will not address the effects of injection wells explicitly,” Royer wrote. “No mention is made of their potential contribution but their influence will show up on the nutrient flux analysis if the results are significant. They seem to conclude that sewage is not a problem since they dismiss the nitrogen isotope work that focuses on wastewater management problems.” While the County Council does not have the authority to cancel the contract, they could make recommendations to do so or to investigate the procurement selection process. The contract does contain a provision for cancellation, or “Termination for Convenience.” “The Procurement Officer may, when the interests of the County so require, terminate this Contract in whole or in part, for the convenience of the County,” it states. In order to comply with the original goals of the project, going back to the drawing board and utilizing the federal appropriation in a more proactive way is exactly what’s needed. ■

SPIN CYCLE Change of heart... “There's no way to sugar-coat a loss. Last night we lost an election, and I called Charles Djou to congratulate him and offer my assistance as he undertakes his new responsibilities on Capitol Hill for the next seven months.... But tomorrow is a new day, the start of our next chapters together, and I'm excited to begin anew.” - From a May 23 e-mail sent by Ed Case to his supporters, titled “Mahalo Nui Loa! On To The Future” “The result in Saturday's election was most attributable to around $1 million in false attack ads leveled at me in the closing weeks by both of my opponents and their supporters. Charles Djou's main goal was of course to win against the candidate he viewed as his real threat. But it was also to push me below Colleen Hanabusa in the hope that she rather than me will be his opponent in November's general election. Colleen's goal... was not to beat Charles but to finish second. This was so she could claim entitlement to the primary nomination, although my candidacy is the stronger one against Charles in the general.” - From a May 25 e-mail, titled “The Dark Side of Politics” “This past week since Election Day has been a roller coaster. We've taken apart the results and analyzed our options every which way.... My heart tells me to stay in this fight, but my head says this has become the wrong fight. So today I'm withdrawing my candidacy for the U. S. House of Representatives from Hawai‘i's great First District...” - From a May 30 e-mail, titled “Heart Says Yes, Head Says No”

AMERICAN DREAM COME TRUE In 2007, after a stay in the United States distinguished mainly by his acquisition of a long police record, illegal immigrant Cecil Harvey, 55, was deported to his native Barbados. However, according to records revealed by the New York Post in May, Harvey received, in late 2009, one last remembrance of America: $145,000 from the city of New York in settlement of his lawsuit over having once been held at Rikers Island jail for about a month longer than the law permitted.

IF ONLY THERE'D BEEN A BUMBLING COP AROUND Betty Lou Lynn, 83, was mugged and had her wallet stolen in her new hometown of Mount Airy, North Carolina, in April. Lynn is the actress who played Barney Fife's best girl, Thelma Lou, on the Andy Griffith TV show and had lived in Los Angeles until she became alarmed at the city's crime rate. She decided in 2007 to move to the quieter, peaceful Mount Airy, which was Griffith's birthplace and the model for the TV town of Mayberry.

NULLIFIED Gary Null filed a lawsuit in New York City in April against the maker of a nutrition supplement called Ultimate Power Meal, alleging that he had suffered constant pain, kidney damage and internal bleeding from the product's recommended daily regimen. Ultimate Power Meal is one of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;healthâ&#x20AC;? supplements packaged under the label of...Gary Null, a nationally prominent pitchman for homeopathic remedies. Null is suing the manufacturer who supplies the product on which Null affixes his Ultimate Power Meal label. (According to consumer advisers at, Null is â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the nation's leading promoters of dubious treatment for serious disease.â&#x20AC;?)

QUESTIONABLE JUDGEMENT According to court records cited by The Washington Post in April, Rene Fernandez, 45, will plead guilty to one count of a DUIcaused injury in connection with a 2009 traffic accident in Montgomery County, Maryland, that severely injured a retired county judge and his wife, both in their 80s. Fernandez and the judge, Edwin Collier, had met previously, in 1998, when Judge Collier pronounced sentence on Fernandez for DUI. At that time, Judge Collier released

Fernandez on probation, even though Fernandez had been arrested for DUI twice in the previous three months.

POOR EXCUSES (1) The reason career criminal Kevin Polwart gave for his brief February escape from New Zealand's Auckland Prison was to demonstrate that he posed no threat to society on the outside and thus that he should be parolled. Instead, authorities added nine months to his sentence. (2) A judge in Scotland went lenient on George McIntosh, 53, who had been convicted of embezzling the equivalent of about $87,000 from two pro golfing organizations. McIntosh claimed that his medication for Parkinson's disease had made him â&#x20AC;&#x153;compulsive[ly]â&#x20AC;? generous so that he needed to embezzle money in order to buy gifts for his friends.

The other day, after dropping off my kids at school, I encountered you in your car driving in front of me. You turned into a driveway without using a turn signal and stopped, still occupying at least half of my lane. Narrowly avoiding collision, I honkedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not the kind of honk that says â&#x20AC;&#x153;I'm an assholeâ&#x20AC;? but the short gentle kine that says â&#x20AC;&#x153;eh brah, wake up.â&#x20AC;? Later, when we both parked and went into the store, you asked me where I was from, because I honked my horn and people here don't do that. Well brah, back in the old days we neva used the car horn because we all looked out for each other and had lots of aloha. After I told you I was from here you kept on asking me if this was how I wanted to start my day. You were barking so much I couldn't answer your question, but now I will: My day started like every morning, with focus the well-being of my two little boys. And I certainly didn't want to start my day with an accident caused by somebody who is too lazy to use his turn signal. Or maybe you started the day planning on retirement in a wheelchair covered by my insurance. â&#x2013; To share or save this article, type:

THE MOTHER JONES OF LAZY BEER DRINKERS In April, warehouse workers at the Copenhagen, Denmark, brewery that makes Carlsberg beer went on strike after the company cut back on its allowance of providing up to three free beers per shift, which workers thought made their mundane jobs easier to take. As of April 1, only one beer per shift was provided, and only at lunch.

TUNNEL VISION Police in Austin, Texas, executing a search warrant in May, discovered an elaborate, three-story tunnel complex extending as far as 35 feet underground, beneath the home of Jose Del Rio, 70, which he apparently dug over at least a two-year period. Police also found 19 guns, plus ammunition, batteries and compressed gas (which presented a serious safety hazard). The property showed signs of caving in and posed a threat to adjacent property, as well. Police noted that Del Rio (who neighbors said â&#x20AC;&#x153;kept to himselfâ&#x20AC;?) was cooperative during the search although he offered no particular explanation for the tunnels. â&#x2013; To share or save this article, type:

ou locked us out!” says Neil Abercrombie, entering the MauiTime office in a buttoneddown Aloha shirt, hair slightly disheveled, a stack of papers under his arm and two campaign aides on his heels. And it's true, though in our defense Abercrombie was running late—a product, he says, of an over-long engagement on the West side and a mix-up involving Maui's public transportation system. Fortunately, we still found plenty of time to talk. Abercrombie, a ten-term U.S. Congressman who resigned in February to run for governor, will face an array of pressing issues if he becomes Hawaii's seventh chief executive. We discussed some of those issues with him, got his take on the state of national politics and even delved into the philosophy of fear. But first...

OK, let's address the elephant in the room. Hawaii just spent almost $1 million on a special election to replace you, and the winner, Republican Charles Djou, is your ideological opposite. Do you regret resigning? I'm running for governor. You run for governor, you go all in. Political figures come and go. I have no claim to that office other than whatever faith and trust people put into me. You don't have to look any further than the headlines in the Advertiser, where we voted all that stimulus money for education, for transportation, for health care, and we're among the worst states in the country for actually putting that to work on people's behalf. This state cries out for filling that leadership gap, that leadership vacuum. You can't do that running part time pretending you're a member of Congress. Once I made the decision [to run], I determined very quickly I'd have to campaign full time. I don't think it's an honorable thing to do to take a paycheck for one thing when you're doing something else. As far as the election is concerned, it exemplifies one of the dilemmas that the [Democratic] Party has to respond to. It has nothing to do with me. The demographics of the voting population are changing significantly—you can't just stand up anymore and say, 'I'm a Democrat' and expect to get elected. Or for that matter, 'I'm a Republican.' The Republican didn't get the majority of votes in the special election, on the contrary—Mr. Djou got just about the

10 June 3, 2010

number of votes that a representative of the Republican Party would be expected to get. It's up to the Democrats now to put together a compelling candidacy. We're in the midst of trying to figure that out. “The demographics of the voting population are changing significantly—you can't just stand up anymore and say, 'I'm a Democrat' and expect to get elected.”

Djou—and it would have been the same for Case or Hanabusa—has to run in the upcoming primary and general elections, meaning he has to start campaigning again almost immediately. Won't that impede his ability to learn the ropes in Washington, let alone accomplish anything? I can speak with some authority on this because I had exactly the same experience in 1986. This is not anything new for Hawaii, nor for the rest of the country. You cannot be appointed to the House of Representatives, you have to be elected. And state law requires that when there's an opening, you have a special election. [In 1986] I was elected in September. At least this special election took place in May. In terms of learning the ropes, I guess I learned them pretty good—I was appointed to the Armed Services Committee and I was appointed again when I came back. You're there to vote on issues; if you're not prepared for that, you shouldn't have run in the first place. Education is a key part of your platform. One idea you've proposed is the “decentralization of authority... with principals in charge of budget, program and staff.” It sounds like you believe there is wasteful bureaucracy in our state school system, something the current governor has also said. Yet she's had serious problems dealing with the unions. How will you succeed where she failed? Having been a union organizer myself when I was at the University of

Talking story with the former Congressman and current gubernatorial hopeful By Jacob Shafer Hawaii, and having been elected to the executive board of the AFL-CIO, and having been part of a negotiating group to put together the first contract that was offered to the faculty at the University of Hawaii, and having been the education chairman and been involved in supporting collective bargaining agreements for all of my legislative life, I don't think that'll be a difficulty for me. The governor, I think, regardless of what her motives or intentions were, put forward a program nothing like the one that I'm advocating. She wanted to have a series of boards of education, not just one but several. You want to talk about a proliferation of administrative overhead and hierarchy, that would have just compounded the problems that exist. I think it's less a matter of waste, because I think the people who are involved in the current system are doing the best they can. I've known members of the Board of Education for years; many are personal friends. The issue is whether or not the Board of Education as presently constituted and the system of education we have is suitable for the 21st century. I think it is not. My proposal is hardly original with me. This emphasis on deemphasizing centrality of administration and diffusing authority and responsibility to the street level, to the school level, is something that's either being implemented or worked on and proposed all over the country. With our centralized funding system, with statewide revenue being the basis for the dispersal of funding, this is an ideal opportunity to keep the advantages of a central fund [while] decentralizing the decision-making to the school level. Every principal I've talked to is eager to assume that responsibility; teachers couldn't be happier about it. I'm putting my election on the line with this. If I'm elected, I'll have a clear mandate. If I succeed,

it's because the public wants to have a revolution in education. Are you prepared to promise the voters that if you're elected, Furlough Fridays will be a thing of the past—permanently? It's central to the theme I'm proposing. It's more than reform of education; it's completely reorienting it, systematically. So the answer is yes. In fact, I'll say to you explicitly: I intend to take full responsibility for the restoration of public confidence in the school system. I have to do that. Because the governor, as we now know, is the final arbiter over the expenditure of funds. The Board of Education can't authorize or appropriate or expend funds. The governor is the one who, for better or worse, has that control. “I intend to take full responsibility for the restoration of public confidence in the school system.”

Do you support civil union bill HB444 and would you sign it if you were governor? Sure. Although I wish it hadn't gotten to this stage; we should have settled this a long time ago. People's civil rights are their civil rights. That shouldn't be a question in the first place. Both your Democratic opponent, Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann, and the presumed Republican nominee, Lt. Gov. Duke Aiona, have said they oppose HB444 on religious grounds. Do you think it's appropriate for an elected official to let his religious beliefs guide public policy? Well I think their religious beliefs will guide their view of life, and that always affects what you do in terms of public policy. And you certainly can have a position with regard to that, self-referencing your own

beliefs. That's what the First Amendment says, that the government shouldn't make any law or interfere in any way with what people believe. But that works both ways— you cannot take your religious beliefs and foist them on someone else, not in the public arena. I think the best example of how to reconcile your public role with your private beliefs and philosophy is Governor Jack Burns, [Hawaii's] first Democratic governor. Burns was a devout Roman Catholic, he went to Mass seven days a week. And he had grave reservations about the bill that passed the legislature when he became governor with regard to reproductive services, specifically whether someone could elect to have an abortion. He opposed it on religious grounds, but he allowed the bill to become law without his signature. His view was, he was making very clear what his belief was but he did not veto it because he felt that would thwart the will of the legislature, which had done the same kind of agonizing about it. I can't think of anybody with greater integrity, nor can I think of a more clear way of indicating that we have separation of church and state in this country for a very good reason. Not separation of philosophy or belief or moral compasses or guides, but the incapacity under our Constitution to force your religious will on someone else. Do you believe the counties should be allowed to keep their current share of the Transient Accommodations Tax? I think we need to take a look at the whole thing. This is all policy stuff. I was there [at the state legislature] when they passed the so-called “Transient Accommodations Tax.” It's a hotel room tax—let's call it what it is. This is just a division of the funds coming in. However rational or useful it was, a determination was made that a certain percentage should go to the counties. It makes sense to do that. Whether the formula is the right one, I don't know and I don't much care. The figure is arbitrary to begin with, but it's probably not capricious. Maybe we could revisit the formula to try and make it more useful to the counties, but I have no objection on any philosophical or legislative basis for sharing it; we should be sharing it. What we need to do is figure out how it's being spent. That's the question. Who controls this money? The governor has just allowed a bill to become law that lets this money be spent in secret. Forget about whether the county gets a dollar more or a dollar less, the question is, who's making that decision? Is it being made in secret? And if it is, how are we going to get any accountability about the tens of millions of dollars that are being expended by a group of people who are appointed? The idea behind it, I was told, is that we don't want anybody to know our marketing secrets. Excuse me? What marketing secrets are known among the Hawaii Tourism Authority that are unknown to the rest of the world? Is there some special kind of marketing deal that has sprung full-blown into their skulls? What are they, Saul on the way to Tarsus, falling on

their okole and getting a revelation? We've got 70 or 80 million dollars a year being spent and allocated in secret. I'm much more worried about that. Do you agree that energy independence and food security are two of the biggest issues facing Hawaii? Absolutely, it's in my platform. What are some concrete steps you'd take to achieve both? This points back to the rationale for my campaign, the reason I left Congress to run: the collapse of leadership. This is a leadership question.You're not going to get any argument that we should be growing more of our own food.You know when I first heard that? The 1970s. We're importing more food now than we were in the 1970s. So how's it working out? Same with energy. I've been hearing for years that we shouldn't be dependant on importing carbon-based fuel, ie oil, from Indonesia or wherever the heck we're getting it today. So what are we gonna do? I look at energy independence and trying to utilize the advantages we have in terms of solar or wind or geothermal or biofuels or any combination thereof as a survival question. Those decisions have to start being made in 2011. Water issues are tied in as well. Look at what's going on on Maui today, with this unseemly argument about stream flows, pitting taro farmers against plantation workers. That is antithetical to energy independence let alone food security let alone good public policy. We need to figure out, what is our water policy to begin with? It's not a question of who's getting what.You wouldn't have that argument if we had a good understanding of how to share the water we do have to maximize our capacity to be able to feed ourselves. When you start looking at the problem in front of you as opposed to a challenge between factions, that's when you begin to get the answer. The specifics [of food security and energy independence] are the subject of another program. And it's not that I don't want to get into it, but I imagine the people who read MauiTime are up to their eyeballs in ideas and suggestions. It's not that we lack proposals or game plans, it's that we haven't had the leadership and the will to say, this is where we're going and there's no turning back.

maintaining water rights is a prerequisite for keeping HC&S going, whether they're producing sugar for consumption or fuel— Well that's what they say. So you don't believe them? It's not that I don't believe them, but you can have all the intentions in the world. Look what happened to Maui Land & Pine. I'm quite familiar with this issue; I helped to keep sugar alive in this state for 20 years. And the reason for doing it, by the way, had nothing to do with capital versus labor or any of that, it had to do with fighting wage slavery in the rest of the world. Sugar is disappearing, not only in Hawaii but across the Mainland, for a very simple reason: no matter how productive you are, no matter how rich your yield, that doesn't matter when you have global forces that can force wage slavery on you. That's the reason that both pineapple and sugar went down. Now whether people lament that or think that history is falling apart, that's immaterial to the point I'm raising. When it comes to agriculture, particularly plantation agriculture as we know it in Hawaii, it's going to change regardless. We have to be prepared for that. That's why we have to have a good water policy. Sure, I want to keep everybody working as long as possible. There's nothing contradictory about saying you want to keep the plantation in business and at the same time be prepared for whatever transition has to be made. People can say whatever they want, but economic forces outside water will determine the outcome. Believe me, water will not be the principle or even, eventually, a peripheral consideration when it comes to whether these companies stay in business, or stay in the same kind of business.

To hear the complete interview, go to

“It's not that we lack proposals or game plans, it's that we haven't had the leadership and the will to say, this is where we're going and there's no turning back.”

You brought up the stream flow issue. Your colleague in Washington, Senator Inouye, recently pledged support for Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar, but parent company Alexander & Baldwin has made it clear that

“When it comes to agriculture, particularly plantation agriculture as we know it in Hawaii, it's going to change. We have to be prepared for that. That's why we have to have a good water policy.”

Speaking of crops, as governor what steps would you take to make Hawaii's medical marijuana law more workable? Do you support efforts like the one in California to legalize marijuana outright? To the first question, you make it work by making it work, by committing to doing it. Whether it's marijuana or any other drug, if it's medically sanctioned for use, for relief of pain or any other symptoms, then of course it should be utilized. If you can advertise drugs on television for public consumption that include death as a side effect—I've seen this, as I'm sure you have. 'Go ask your doctor.' This isn't even something that's being ordered or prescribed by your doctor, you're

being urged to go see your doctor to see if you can use the drug. And it's being stated on TV as possibly having a side effect of killing you! And someone's worried about medical marijuana? We're at a point of public idiocy. Now, I don't want to move down the legalization side of it because that has so many variables it'll actually interfere with the proper medical use of it. I'm willing to take a look at that down the line, but right now let's get the medical use of any drug, marijuana or anything else, squared away. But philosophically, do you believe marijuana should be criminalized? No, I don't think so. It's not a question of that, never has been in my mind. It's a public health question. Just like alcohol. The question is how do we regard [marijuana] in terms of what sanctions we put on it. In that sense, I think it ranks pretty low compared to, say, white collar fraud. I wish they would spend a lot more time going after the Bernie Madoffs who destroyed people's lives, or the Goldman Sachs who destroyed people's lives. You want to talk about destruction of lives? They did a lot more with the derivatives and fake investments to destroy people than any drug probably did, including alcohol or nicotine, for that matter. So I'm not a big fan of prohibition. As someone who spent close to two decades in Washington, do you feel that partisan bickering and gridlock have gotten worse? What would you say to people who have given up on the ability of our national leaders to get anything done? If they've given up, shame on them. As someone who has had the opportunity to travel the world, going into war zones and seeing what happens when people don't have the opportunity to vote and participate, no matter how difficult it is, to say that you're giving up on it? When we could be shot for what we're doing right now? We wouldn't survive this conversation in dozens of places around the world. So I don't have much patience for that. I didn't take a gun to get into office. I worked for it, I talked to people, I asked them to take a chance on me. I'm under no illusions that I'm the answer to everybody's prayers for good government, but I ain't bad. I listen and I try to exercise my judgement in a way that advances the public interest. In that context, it's true that the rancorous opposition [in Washington] has gotten more acute, particularly since the late '80s and early '90s, when Newt Gingrich came into the Congress of the United States and evolved a theory, which he then put into practice, that the way for the Republican Party to come back into power and back into the majority in the House of Representatives was to tear the institution to pieces—to denigrate it, to belittle it, to accuse it, to engage in a public denunciation of the House and the people in it. And they succeeded in 1994. It was a bloodless revolution in the sense that gunshots weren't fired, although there were militias operating as there are now. But it devoured [Gingrich] as well, (Continued on pg.28)

Star in the Making New Asian-fusion joint has a little bit of everything Star Noodle 286 Kupuohi St., Lahaina 667-5400


Chef Sheldon Simeon, left, and owner Michael Moore.

Vietnamese crepe.


tar Noodle was a hub of activity the afternoon I dropped in. Chef Peter Merriman, of Merriman's and TS Restaurants, was having lunch. Matt Lane, LahainaTown Action Committee boardmember, was also on hand, thoroughly enjoying the nori chicken with spicy aioli dip. Musician Zane Monteleone of Sounds of Addiction was on his way out, satiated. With all the socializing, it was a while before I got to sit down and actually peruse the menu, which is so loaded with choices it's hard to make a decision. When a new restaurant arrives on the Maui food scene it's usually opening in a new location or taking an old restaurant's former space. Star Noodle, on the other hand, is in a brand new spot. The decor is well thought-out, simple and gorgeous with a kind of urban-Asian aesthetic. Bamboo, dark wood and woven seagrass along with dark river rock and stone accents work together to create an effortlessly chic vibe. A 20-top table sits in the middle of the restaurant and can be shared by multiple parties or claimed by one big group. It is a great place to meet or do business. “We have a great following in the local food and beverage industry, with staff meetings

and folks taking their business lunches and power dinners here,” says owner Michael Moore (no relation). It's one thing to be in a beautiful place while you eat, but it's another to eat beautiful food. The lunch menu starts off with exotic Asian burritos, filled with meat or fish and veggies. The share plates are on-point with the tapas trend; it's dim sum done easy. You'll find Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and Korean influences folded in with Chef Sheldon Simeon's own local take. Steamed pork buns feature a meltin-your-mouth fluffy steamed white bun with a mildly seasoned pressed pork slab and cucumber. This is not your familiar manapua. Instead, it takes on a slight taco shape and improves on the dish: where manapua ends up being too doughy, this treatment balances the bread-to-pork ratio and ads a veggie. I couldn't get enough of it. The Vietnamese crepe is on the the lunch and dinner menu, and again presents a familiar dish with a twist—a lettuce wrap with a makeover. The large crepe is folded over the cooked shrimp and pork- and bean sprout fillings, and there is a stack of maliable butter leaf lettuce, mint and matchstick carrots with which you concoct your burrito. Attack the crepe with a knife, pulling off sections to pile onto the mix; it's a little messy but the flavors well outweigh any eating awkwardness. At dinner, I highly recommend the Brussels

sprouts starter. The Brussels sprouts—a trendy veggie at the moment—are pan-roasted to caramelized perfection and served with bacon and kim chee puree. Fabulous as the share plates are, you'll want to save room for noodles. A recent special was tempura mahi ramen, garnished with pohole fern salad, a surprise topping that was incredible in saimin. The clear, traditional ramen broth was soaked into the crisp mahi, a phenomenal flavor and texture combo. Star Noodle emphasizes local ingredients, local talent and local recipes, the latter being most apparent in the Lahaina fried soup, which started out in another West side kitchen long ago and has been ressurected by Chef Simeon. The ramen is gourmet and ranges from $7 to $9 bucks, but you can also get some dry noodle dishes that are large enough to share. The Singapore noodle is outstanding, made with a lighter vermicelli bean noodle and served with chicken, shrimp and vegetables. The veggies are soft but still have bite to them

and the noodles are well-seasoned, lending plenty of flavor. It's a light dish, and the kalamansi lime garnish gives a perfect citrus kick. This is the epitome of a summer lunch. Dessert is fabulous—and unusual. Housemade ice creams come in tart, sour, savory and sweet, depending on when you dine. The ling hing mui ice cream is great; even if you've never heard of or don't eat li hing mui, try it. The malasadas are round sugar-coated fried breads, served on a stick so you can easily dip them in the condiment tray of caramel, nuts and fudge. They're good enough to just come in for dessert, although with all the choices, I don't know why you would. ■ Got a hot food scoop? Contact Jen Russo at 808-280-3386 or fax to 244-0446.

Bon Dance Schedule Your countywide guide to 0-bon festivities







t's summer again, which means regular south swells and weekend bon dancing. The weekly o-bon services and dances will go on for three solid months this year, starting the first weekend in June and ending the last weekend in August. Bon dances originate in the story of the Buddha's disciple, Mokuren (Maudgalyayana), who sought to allieviate the suffering of his mother who had been reborn as a hungry ghost. After instruction by the Buddha, Mokuren eased his mother's pain, causing her to dance. He then began dancing himself and the villagers joined in. The practice became established in India and was later syncretized with Japanese folk traditions. Bon dances first arrived in Hawaii with Buddhist missionaries who used them to strengthen their relationship with Japanese plantation worker communities across the islands. Today, the dances are multicultural events honoring ancestors and community alike, a chance to have fun with neighbors, eat good food, catch up with old classmates and travel to other parts of the island. â&#x2013;

The Family Circus Deep generational ties bind Mauiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dazzling high-wire showcase


or cirque artists, there is no funhouse reflected sentiment of running away from the circus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried it, and I couldn't wait to get back,â&#x20AC;? says Cornell â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tuffyâ&#x20AC;? Nicholas, producer of Maui's Cirque Polynesia. Hailing from Ringling Brothers parentageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his father a renowned ringmaster, his mother a bear trainerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nicholas has produced numerous shows including both the Moscow State Circus and Moscow International Circus, which have racked up more than 5,000 performances in the last decade. The allure that makes people want to join the circus is no illusion. Grueling work though it may be, it's a glamorously suspenseful trade that takes performers across the globe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have traveling in our blood,â&#x20AC;? says Nicholas. But what seems to make it all work is that their bonds are often blood too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of the circus people [leave] because you get to travel a lot, seeing different places and different people,â&#x20AC;? says Simon Arestov, who like Nicholas is a second-generation performer and got his start in Russia under his parents' tutelage. Now, both his parents, along with Simon's two younger brothers, are key elements to Cirque Polynesia. Father Alexandre is a performer and assistant producer; Nicholas calls him his â&#x20AC;&#x153;right hand man.â&#x20AC;? After a few weeks off at home, Simon says, they're itching to get back on the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, get on the road and go see something else,â&#x20AC;? chimes Lyric Wallenda. Impressively, Lyric and her aerial partner Rietta (a.k.a. Mom) are of the eight-generation Wallenda Family of famed performers. Her 80-year-old grandmother, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The High Flying Granny with Nerves of Steel,â&#x20AC;? still takes to the stage today, performing handstands atop a swaying 110 foot pole. But for all their bohemian urges, a show on Maui hits the sweet spot. Simon is quick to espouse his love of Maui, especially the weather. That's particularly important, since they've moved from the Hyatt's indoor Monarchy Ballroom to a custom outdoor stage, dubbed the Maui Moon Theater. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There's nothing like having a permanent show on Maui,â&#x20AC;? says Nicholas, who also wrote the show. So how long do they hope the show will last? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can answer that,â&#x20AC;? Nicholas says, with Lyric and Simon creating a chorus, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for-ever.â&#x20AC;?


erforming six nights per week and having recently celebrated their 275th show, the troupe reaches its one-year milestone this week. Commemorating that accomplishment, the show will offer free tickets to keiki 12 and under throughout the summer, in addition

to their year-round kama'aina rates. They're also further developing their actâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the script is built around the talent, says Nicholasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Cirque Polynesia has just added to their hanai 'ohana a trio of contortionists who tour under the moniker â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mongolian Angels.â&#x20AC;? Uuriintuya Sukhbaatar, Oyunsuren Mendsaikhan and Nomintuya Nergui have for over half a decade performed throughout Singapore, Germany, France and the United States, but have been on Maui less than two weeks. Though new to our island, the young women bring a certain doused-in-emerald polish; their synchronized movements are nothing short of flesh and bone sculpture, undeniably provocative and at times blurring the lines as to whose limbs belong to who. Mainstay acts are equally astounding. During â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hula Hoops,â&#x20AC;? there's a progressive addition of reflective hoops, until performers have ensconced themselves like butterflies reverting to writhing, golden cocoons. During â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silks,â&#x20AC;? acrobats (including Hawaii's own Raymond Silos) ascend to the rafters by deftly winding themselves on great drapes of cloth, casting their fabric wings behind them in billowing plumes and coming as close as can be had to flying. But when it comes to high-flying balance the death-defiance, it's the mother and daughter pair who take the cake. Performing their family's signature â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wallenda Perch,â&#x20AC;? their routine concludes with Rietta suspendedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and spinning at high RPMâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;by what I can only describe as a noose, hung on naught but Lyric's wrists, who herself dangles by a slip around a single ankle. Funambulists both (fancy speak for tightrope-walkers), the women take to the skies on the outdoor theater's

new 40-foot long high-wire. Simon's little bro Ivan is a unicycle darling, comically performing hops and loops that make popping a wheelie on a two-wheeler look like mere pedaling of a toddler's trike. As for Simon himself, he's a true star. Both on- and off-stage, his persona is sparkling and theatrical, though never at the sacrifice of warm candidness. He's best about engaging the crowd, blowing his fingertips and giving a subtle but ohso-charismatic wink before doing his trademark bit. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rolla Bollaâ&#x20AC;? actâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which he's performed since he was 13â&#x20AC;&#x201D;defies logic. Beginning on a stand already as tall a man, Simon stacks metal cylinders and sets of cones connected at their frustums until the tower he teeters on has grown so high, he requires a tall stool just to mount it. But I loved his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cubeâ&#x20AC;? act best. It's a sort of 3D, black-light version of fire dancing so speedy it could well be channeled as a source of alternative energy. Providing original soundtrack to it all is composer/musical director Daniel Cruces, and his partner and featured soloist, Diane Rubio. Stylistically, Cruces is my favorite characterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Cirque Polynesia's playfully dark version of a ringmaster. Brass-button breasted with a gaunt white face, his hair blows wildly as he pumps the pulse into the show from his electric drum kit. Meanwhile, his muse Rubio does everything short of bump and grind against her stripped-down electric cello and prove that, despite her petite Oahu-born physique, she's a practiced headbanger who can easily jump to Japanese flute, Chinese violin or searing electric guitar at a moment's notice. Despite the merits of its partsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which are good enough to help you forget you're sitting in plastic outdoor chairsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the story seems non-existent and the theme wanes like the theater's namesake. While the show explicitly aims to not be anything like a luau, it could do with more ethnic infusion, not to mention a few unifying threads between its disconnectedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;albeit gaspinducingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;vignettes. That said, the show's spirit of 'ohana is overwhelming. Love and trust emanate from the performers; it's easily the show's most heartfelt quality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We enjoy performing, that's where our heart is,â&#x20AC;? Lyric says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When your heart is in it, you really connect with people because they know you're out there enjoying it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x2013;

Two Scientists and a Mutant Tips for raising your genetically engineered abomination Splice

★ ★ ★★ ★

You must be very proud.

Rated R/104 min.


he premise (and it's a doozy): Two romantically involved scientists (Adrian Brody and Sarah Polley) create a pair of blobby, pulsating mutations that resemble living penises and are named “Fred” and “Ginger.” In creating these nauseating entities, we may have come closer, the movie tells us, to finding a cure for diabetes and cancer. The next step the scientists take is to combine human and experimental (aka, monstrous) DNA and create a new creature that initially resembles an uncooked bratwurst, then grows rapidly and appears more and more human, except for the tail, gills and that high-pitched squealing sound that only monkeys and peacocks make. Instead of destroying this abomination, the scientists adopt it as their pseudo-child, monitoring its progress while growing emotionally attached to it despite all the warning signs that “Dren,” as they name it,

will eventually turn on them and try to eat them, or worse. The anticipation of what comes next is the best thing this sci-fi horror parable has to offer. During the laboratory-set scenes, we share a sense of discovery mixed with dread and curiosity. The film’s early and best scenes suggest a hybrid of a Guillermo Del Toro and David Cronenberg film. Initially, this isn’t even a horror film but a modern day Frankenstein crossed with Dolly the Sheep.

The special effects are vivid and the performances resonate, especially Delphine Chaneac’s startling turn as Dren. It’s fun to see Oscar-winner Brody, a fine actor but not a traditional leading man, find his niche in sci-fi. Polley is simply terrific. The film offers a novel take on the unconventional family. The scenes of Dren being “raised” tease the conventions of parenthood and are flush with surprises. It's

energetically directed by Vincenzo Natali, who doesn’t overuse gore but isn’t afraid to give genre fans something creatively grotesque to gawk at. Yet things start to unravel in the third act, which goes in directions both bold and silly and leads to a standard monster-inthe-woods showdown and a wrap-up so unoriginal and unsatisfying, it seems like the screenwriters ran out of ideas and just settled for Species IV. There’s also a last-minute hint of a sequel but audiences likely won’t embrace this as a potential franchise (then again, they made a sequel to Big Momma’s House and Garfield, so anything is possible). This film will stand out in a summer of sequels, remakes, TV spinoffs and ‘splosion fests, which is one of the best things about it. But even though it has a lot going for it, the film ultimately left me cold. It compromises its playful, ambitious start and mutates, literally, into an unlovable monster. ■ To share or save this article, type:

IRON MAN 2 - PG13 - Action - Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark and his metallic alter ego. And Sabbath gets some more royalty checks. 125 min. JUST WRIGHT - PG - Romance - Tough girl Queen Latifah takes care of an injured NBA player. No points for guessing that he makes a triumphant comeback, and negative points for guessing that an unlikely romance blossoms. 111 min. LETTERS TO JULIET - PG - Romance - Is this: a) A buddy cop movie; b) A torture porn grindhouse flick; or c) A rom com about an American girl in Italy? If you answered a or b, we have a question for you: what’s the rent like under rocks these days? 101 min. MACGRUBER - R - Comedy - Stretching SNL sketches into feature films can be hilarious (Wayne’s World) or disastrous (Superstar). This one-joke MacGyver spoof looks suspiciously like the latter. 105 min. OCEANS - G - Documentary - Disney goes under the sea in this latest visual dazzler. Wonder if they find Nemo? 100 min. PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME - PG13 - Fantasy, Action - Films based on video games don’t exactly have a sterling track record, but this should at least please FX-obsessed teens and anyone interested in ogling a bronzed, beefed-up Jake Gyllenhaal. 116 min. PRINCESS KA’UILANI - PG - Drama - Taking complex historical events and turning them into love stories is always a dicey proposition, but this Hawaii-set tale has generated a lot of buzz, both positive and negative. 130 min. ROBIN HOOD - PG13 - Action, Adventure - Yet another take on the legendary outlaw, this time with Russell Crowe in the title role. Safe to assume it’ll have all the joy and historical accuracy of Gladiator. 140 min. SEX AND THE CITY 2 - R - Comedy, Romance - Four narcissistic, horny, shopping-obsessed Manhattanites head for the North African desert— what could go wrong? 146 min. SHREK FOREVER AFTER (3D) - PG - Family, Animated - The final chapter in the Shrek saga finds our big green hero in an alternate universe where, presumably, wisecracking fairy-tale characters still make non-stop pop culture references. 93 min.

This Week's Picks We Love the ‘80s

Absolute Power

Friday (June 4), Iao Theater, Wailuku First Friday, 7pm, Free

Friday (June 4), Castle Theater, MACC, 7:30, $35/$45/$55

If your closet is anything like mine, it’s more altar to nostalgia than receptacle for anything remotely stylish. But if you wait long enough, most things come back around. (Well, some things… I could do without stirrup pants, thanks.) Recent resurfacing of ’80s styling may have you itching to bust out your Baja hoodies, Locals Only and paint-splattered duds, and now may indeed be the time to make all your waiting worthwhile. But in the fast-paced world of fashion, it’s a fine line between fierce and faux pas. Trends could be shifting to the ’90s as we speak! You might leave the house in all your day-glo glory, only to find out that it’s half-past Hammer Time and babydoll dresses are again all the rage. Then some grunge kid beats you up for wearing a jumpsuit… Play it safe by rockin’ it Reagan where others will be doing the same. At this month’s First Friday in Wailuku, the Iao Theater kicks off their all-'80s summer theme with a free screening of Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Michael Pulliam hosts, with a panel discussion preceding the film. Since it’s hip to be square, there’ll be an '80s trivia contest with Na Koa Ikaika Maui Professional Baseball and Flatbread Co. sponsoring prizes. But don’t start buggin’ if your recollections are hazy. Consolation prize: all-you-can-eat popcorn. 242-6969,

Technically, Tower of Power is a boy band, with a testosterone-injected name backing their brand of urban soul music. Peppered with delicious blues rhythms, their albums showcase the richness of a well–developed, diversely talented group of musicians. Since their 1968 start in Oakland, California, Tower of Power has been traveling the world on tours in the United States, Japan and Europe. Saxophone and keyboard really jazz up their deep beats and vocals, keeping the sound alive and fresh. Drums, trumpet, flugelhorn, bass, trombone and lead guitar bind the fleshed-out songs, bringing them seamlessly together to create easy harmony. Though I don’t believe these ten men will dare attempt a cheerleader-style “tower of power” pyramid, their music will surely entertain a lively crowd at the MACC. 242-7469,, [Sierra Brown]

Just Doodle It

Saturday (June 5), The Rainbow House, Ka’anapali, 5-10pm, $100 suggested donation

Sunday (June 6), South Shore Tiki Lounge, Kihei, 8pm

Ugh…“swank.” Overused, it’s fast becoming antiquated in my personal dictionary (its roots do go back nearly two centuries). Everything is swanky this, swanky that—so much so that things with real swagger garner a little less (insert onomatopoeia of choice) when the word is applied. So while still in search of a replacement term, I’ll stress that when we at MauiTime say “swank,” we mean it; and plans for the Plantation Jazz benefit for the Arts Education for Children’s Group (AECG) promise nothing but. The organization “dedicated to improving the quality of education in our schools by restoring music programs” scored with crackerjack communityorganizer Matt Lane orchestrating Saturday’s event. To be held on the grounds of the multi-million dollar Rainbow House at Ka’anapali Coffee Farms, the event will feature the 17-piece 1 O’clock Jazz Band from Montana State University, plus steel guitar master Henry Allen and other musical guests. Peruse art installations, informational booths and play “Family Feud” with GameShow Fanatics. From the beverages and pupus by Chef Casey Piquet and Kona Red Coffee Fruit to the panoramic views from the saline infinity pool, attendees will do good for our keiki and feel, well, swanky. 357-0920,

The napkin. Its uses are as multifarious as its ply. More than lipstick blotter, quicker picker upper, makeshift bib (gross) or bar fly’s little black book, it’s the art world's hippest new substrate. “Richest living artist” Damien Hirst added to his net worth by selling a skull sketch on lunchtime linen for a whopping $37,000, and the coffee house variety took author J.K. Rowling from too-poor-for-paper to almost Oprah. On bar stock is where MauiTime’s editor hypothesizes every Ron Pitts’ Eh Brah! illustration begins (and sometimes ends). And those, we know, are priceless. But for as little as $20, you can be the proud owner of a masterwork from The Great Napkin Doodle, a benefit for the non-profit Keiki Cupboard. This local organization “believe[s] that no child attending school should lack the basic needs for successful integration into their academic environment,” and the fine folks from South Shore Tiki Lounge—partnering with Indigo Paia and Maui Thing—are leading the charge to support the cause. Selected works from 25 artists will be displayed at the lounge and online through July, but opening night is the right night, with music by Kanoa. 874-6444, PHOTO BY RON PITTS

Mayor For A Day


n the fourth grade, I caught a cold. Forced to miss a day of school, I stayed up late the next night, hurriedly scrawling my make-up assignments— one of which was an essay on three ways to make Maui better. Back then, recycled paper was damn near the color of the carbon in #2s, and the lack of contrast was blinding. So I suggested putting recycling centers in every community, hoping this might lead to more quality paper by the time I graduated to college-ruled. Weeks later, my teacher, Miss Fallas, quietly handed me a letter from the Office of the Mayor. Dark black type on paper brighter than the Weekly Reader informed me that all my wildest nine-year-old dreams were about to come true. I’d won the first-ever “Mayor for a Day Essay Contest” (an honor that would— sigh—remain my most prestigious pre-MauiTime credential). Prizes consisted of going Downtown on a school day (gasp!), sitting in then-Mayor Linda Lingle’s chair long enough for a photo op and a cheeseburger lunch on the County dime (I brazenly ordered iced tea, to the adults’ amusement). An unexpected perk included a photo by Matthew Thayer in The Maui News, which helped make up for being scarred for life by a peek into what looked to be Satan’s Lair: the cold, empty Council Chambers. Post-lunch in the parking lot, after everyone had gone, Lingle took a little extra time to lade my arms with every piece of re-election campaign swag her car trunk offered. That, I thought, was very cool and for the rest of the school year (and throughout Summer Pals), I traded in my backpack for my new canvass bag—“LINGLE” screen-printed boldly in blue. Toting it proudly, one corner saturated with uncapped ink, it was testament to my writerly aspirations and bore many a notebook before it bus’ beyond recognition. Years later, some things have changed, some haven’t. Instead of a cold, I got cancer and was forced to miss work. Iced tea proved a gateway to coffee, nurturing a robust caffeine addiction, and I still stay up late hurriedly pecking my overdue assignments. I still lug around a blue-printed canvass bag, though this one says “Budapest, Hungary” (which, for dry reasons that deserve

28 June 3, 2010

no explanation, is very comical to me). And I still fancy being a writer. As for Lingle, well… Last weekend I attended the King’s Cathedral’s prayer breakfast, celebrating the church’s 30th anniversary. The congregation played host to mayors Charmaine Tavares, Mufi Hannemann and Bernard Carvalho, plus Lt. Governor Duke Aiona and now-Governor Lingle herself. When the event concluded, I thought it prime opportunity to make some (re)introductions. By the time I made it through the crowds, all had departed except Lingle; like that long ago day in the parking lot, it seemed but her and I. As I reached to shake her hand, I had a fleeting half-notion that if I reminded her of our earliest acquaintance she might offer to buy me another cheeseburger. “You probably don’t remember me, but I was once Mayor for a Day,” I said, feigning a smile as I realized how dumb I sounded. Lingle smiled in return. “Oh! And what are you doing now?” “I’m a journalist,” I said, my happiness rebounding. Reflexively I rocked to my toes, my inner fourth grader proud for having embraced my dreams. But Lingle couldn’t hear me over the lingering din, and she leaned in, shouting, “A what?” “I’m a JOURNALIST,” I shouted back, and tiptoed even higher. “Oh,” she said. And her smile disappeared as quickly as she did. So much for coming full circle. ■

and he was gone in four years. Because he brought people in who believed him. And when he said, 'Look, that was just what we said to get elected,' they thought it was on the level. And so they kept it up. On the subject of distrust of government, what's your take on the Tea Party movement and what impact do you think it'll have on this election cycle? They'll have some [impact], not as much out here. But you can't institutionalize a mood. The Tea Party is a reflection of an atmosphere. It has no object, other than to say, 'We don't like this.' It is kind of a choked reaction to the idea that you've been shoved totally to the sidelines. You have no control over your life. Particularly when you're being propagandized all day long that you get to make choices, always variations on the theme of you as consumer of goods. And when politics takes on the same aspect, when you're just the consumer of whatever's being fed to you by cynical sociopaths who have no other purpose in life than to manipulate and maneuver you into doing what they want you to do, then you have a situation like the one we have now with the Tea Party. They don't like it, but they don't know what to do about it. I ran into somebody recently who asked me if I [supported] the health care plan. I said, 'Yes, I'm for this healthcare plan.' 'Well then I'm against you. The government is coming into our lives. It's a government plan, I'm against it.' So I said, 'Well are you against the Veterans Administration?' 'Hell no, we can't do enough for the veterans!' 'Well, that's totally a government program, [like] Medicare and Social Security. I suppose you don't want that either.' Now some people say they don't. They don't want it right up until the time they need it. I'm citing that not so much to say they're hypocrites, because I don't think they are being hypocritical. They don't make the connections. [It's] an emotional reaction to being frozen out of participating in life. They feel their tax dollars are not well spent. They feel they're being tapped and tapped hard and often and deep and they're not getting out of it what they think they should. But the

political consequence is that it dissipates into the ether. It's like a wave. All waves dissipate into the sand. No matter what kind of kinetic energy is associated with them, they dissipate into the sand. “The Tea Party is like a wave. All waves dissipate into the sand. No matter what kind of kinetic energy is associated with them, they dissipate into the sand.”

But won't people always have reasons to be frightened and disillusioned? Sure. But the question is, what do you do about that? In fact, on the subject of fear, I brought something with me, a meditation from the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama says there are two types of fear. One is, a decision needs to be made, but what to do? Do I know what to do? You fear that you're going to make the wrong decision. The other is the imaginary fear; we fear the consequences, we imagine all kinds of terrible things are going to happen because we feel totally out of control. He says the answer to the first one is, is the motivation selfish? If you lose your sense of selfishness, if your motivation is one of trying to do good and advance what is good and loving, you'll lose that fear. The second one, you lose your imaginary fear if you become calm and realize that it really is in your imagination. All the demons we carry in ourselves are always trying to get control of us. That can take precedence over us if you lose your sense of a calm reflection that as humans we have faults, we have failures. So yes, there are lots of things to be fearful about. Heck, I'm in this campaign. Am I gonna lose? Am I gonna make the wrong decision? Did I say the wrong word? Did I get half a sentence out that I wish I could pull out of the air and bring back? All those things are operating in us every day. The question is, how are you going to regard that? As long as you're trying to advance the public purpose, and doing it in a loving and kind way, at least you've got a chance to get on the right course. ■ To share or save this article, type:

Horoscopes GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) It’s not your duty to compensate for others’ shortcomings. It’s nice that you want to help out, but at the same time, you shouldn’t feel it’s your responsibility to pick up the slack—especially if they’re not even aware that there’s any slack that needs to get picked up. They might, in fact, need a serious wake-up call—which means letting them take the flak for the slack they let slide. Step aside, Gemini. Your job is to do your job—and let other people do (or not do) theirs. What happens next is, rightfully, out of your hands.

Quizunderstood answers 1. Wakea and Hina



CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You want out, get out. Just own your own reasons for leaving, even if they’re selfish or unflattering. The alternatives are uglier: manipulating the situation so that the other person becomes a villain and you, a victim. That’s not really the case here, if you’re honest with yourself, and it’s hardly fair to anyone involved in or privy to the situation. Owning your feelings or being selfish doesn’t need to make you a villain; it just makes you human. Distorting the situation to avoid responsibility for that is actually far more malicious; please avoid doing so.

2. C. 3. 1957; Harry Yee 4. Three; Kilauea, Hualalai and Mauna Loa

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Treat the disease, not the symptom. Don’t let short-term solutions that make everything nice “for now” cloud your judgment—those will come around to bite you in the ass a little further down the line. Find a resolution that takes the big picture into account. Even though that might lead to more conflict and uncomfortable situations now, it’s better for all concerned in the long run. Swallow your pride, ignore your discomfort, and do the right thing right away, even if it involves conflict and unpleasantness. These issues need to be resolved anyway, sooner or later. You should know that sooner, in this case, would be far better—and ultimately less painful—than later.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Jealousy in more than the mildest dose is not flattering. Nor is making yourself unbearable, creating rules, and generally making your partner or friend “less than” he or she could be. You need to back off and remember your role is to be supportive, not restrictive, and magnanimous, not vindictive. If you really can’t trust your companion enough to let yourself be those things, you’re in the wrong relationship. It’s better you figure that out now before you become someone you’d have trouble being friends with. Get out, if you have to, or let yourself be the trusting, generous friend I know you can be. Anything in-between would probably be a waste of time.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) What’s right is right, regardless of the crap being thrown at you. Don’t let the disapproval of misguided strangers cramp your style, and certainly don’t allow someone’s poor judgment to change who you are, even temporarily. While it’s okay to take others’ perspectives and opinions into account, you’re far too susceptible to making broad alterations based entirely on avoiding others’ condemnation or scorn. This week, stand strong in yourself and the choices you’ve made. That doesn’t mean being stubbornly inflexible in the face of great resistance—it does mean, however, not bending to the slightest breeze.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) I can’t stand wearing rings. Sometimes, I forget this and end up buying myself one—which soon enough joins other neglected rings that I’ll almost never wear. Even though this is a long-established preference of mine, somehow it can still occasionally slip my mind, or I can convince myself that “this one will be different.” It won’t. If you finds words like those echoing in your head, deny them. You know who you are— at least in this particular case. Fooling yourself will almost certainly be a waste of time, energy, and even money, and will ultimately end up being a review of a lesson you quite simply already knew.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Being consistently real and frank is frequently more work than just saying what people want to hear. If you’re a complex person, most of the time you’ll have mixed feelings about a person or situation, and of course it takes more effort to clearly describe those varied, layered emotions than it would to just let them think something more unequivocal. However, certain people really deserve more than an artificial black/white scenario; a more nuanced and authentic response is in order, even though it involves more effort from you. Take the time to fill them in on the big, complicated picture this week.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) You do know better than most everyone else. But don’t get cocky. You still don’t know everything, and you can always learn—if you’re open to it. The most surprising thing is that you’re more likely to get insight from someone who’s actually relatively clueless overall than from a fellow expert, who’s unlikely to offer anything new. “Out of the mouths of babes” may very well be this week’s theme. Listen to those you might usually dismiss. They are clueless, and much of what they say will probably be rubbish. It’s your job this week to be compassionate about that, and to tease out the pearls of wisdom you could discover no other way.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) It feels good to get all caught up on the things you’ve been slacking on—whether that’s washing the dishes, doing your homework, or making the kinds of romantic gestures that keep sparks flying. Life intervenes sometimes, and makes us put some of this stuff by the wayside while we attend to crises or other problems that have cropped up. But it’s important to pick it back up the next chance we get—if we don’t, someone will notice. This week, you have time and opportunity to pursue (and perhaps even conclude) neglected tasks. Don’t squander it.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) While you wish you could be loved for all your faults (affectionately dubbed “foibles”), that’s just not the case. The fact is, most of your less endearing traits are something to be tolerated, not celebrated. People will put up with them because you have so many stellar qualities, but don’t expect them to put you up on a pedestal for all the things you do that don’t really make you shine. Holding out for some ideal person who’ll simply love everything about you is foolish and foolhardy—especially when there are people who love enough things about you to patiently put up with the rest.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) It’s okay to slack off and have some fun when there’s an unexpected cancellation or opening in your schedule—or you break up with someone, or lose a job, etc… However, it’s all too easy to submerse yourself entirely in purposeless playtime and not get anything constructive done. Start being more proactive. You have a lot of shit just simmering on the back burner. Pull some of it up and see if you can get somewhere with it. You have so many ambitions and usually so little time. This week, don’t spend any surprise extra moments concocting new goals—instead, pursue some of your longstanding ones.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. So goes the saying, anyway. However, don’t imagine a raging forest fire when it’s just a lit match. Sparks fly all the time, and sometimes they smolder a little before they go out. You could, of course, spend all your time hoisting a fire extinguisher and putting things out before they ever get going. But I can assure you that nothing is more likely to keep sparks from flying in your direction. You have a choice here: You could be the loving life of the party, in which case you’d have nothing to worry about, or you could be the wet blanket whose jealousy or paranoia keeps anyone from having fun. It should be obvious which is the preferable paradigm.
