On war games, wa­ter and traf­fic

The Garden Island - - Morning Briefing -

Thank you, ed­i­tors, for the Fo­rum, Oc­to­ber 10. Loved your let­ter, Rev. Hafner. Keep them com­ing. A sug­ges­tion: Why don’t we play war games in Hawaii? Cre­ate a new spec­ta­tor sport. At­tract war game fans. We could sell tick­ets.

The en­tire world, I’m sure, would be left speech­less, and maybe if we got out of North Korea’s front yard we could speed up a peace­ful diplo­matic re­sponse.

I’m sure we wouldn’t want North Korea play­ing war in our front yard. Nu­clear bombs in our laps wouldn’t be much fun, ei­ther.

Thank you for the col­umn, Ken Taylor. Next time re­mem­ber a most im­por­tant fac­tor: The qual­ity of the air we breathe. At­ten­tion all driv­ers and pas­sen­gers trapped in these nasty ex­haust-belcher jams: While stuck in traf­fic you might want to hold your breathe.

Also of in­ter­est, Sa­muel Cle­mens said, “Whiskey’s for drinkon’ Wa­ter’s for fight­ing’ over.” More cars, more peo­ple, more filthy air, less wa­ter. No wa­ter? We don’t have a lim­it­less sup­ply of wa­ter or fresh air. Pe­riod. End of state­ment. Vera, let the id­jit’s par­rot — Coul­ter — speak. All she does is re­veal the ig­no­rant id­jit ad­mir­ers who be­lieve her. That’s why he loves be­liev­ers.

Bright minds find an­swers. How many peo­ple, how many ve­hi­cles, can Kauai sup­port? How much wa­ter is avail­able? I’m sure the num­bers are there. Num­bers we can’t ar­gue about.

Run for of­fice, you guys. You’ve got sup­port­ers. Bet­tejo Dux Kala­heo
