Re: All Dogz Worthy

GreatGrey, I'm so sorry. I'm old now, but I remember all my critters. And I still love them and miss them. My child is an only child, so I surrounded him with critters. He picked his first cat when he was 2. Not the same as having a sibling, but he loved kitty. And we added more critters on his birt...

Re: New Diseases

Not panicking yet. We don’t yet know how dangerous the new coronavirus is – and we won’t know until more data comes in. Twenty-six deaths out of 800 reported cases would mean a 3% mortality rate. However, this is likely to be a overestimate since there may be a far larger pool of people who have bee...

Re: Retail Bankruptcies

I relied on Bed Bath & Beyond for lots of stuff on my very limited retail island. Then it started to charge me for postage. :( Fortunately, I have some other options, but the Trump administration plans to make shipping to Hawaii prohibitive.

Re: President* Trump - *Impeached

On a less entertaining note: I have been edgy because the entire impeachment focuses on the phone call to the Ukrainian president in July 2019. Nothing about abandoning the Kurds, about violating the War Powers Act, about violating the Geneva Conventions, about failing to rehab Puerto Rico, about t...

Re: 1/18/20 Flash Poll -- Who Are Your Top 5 Democratic Candidate Choices For President?

I can't figure out who to pick. I see Klobuchar's good points, but she helped Trump pack the courts. Not sure if that is forgivable. Correction - that is not forgivable. Warren will need a strong VP pick. I had a passing thought that Biden could be a one term VP to help smooth the way for Warren. Du...

The NYT Editorial Board statement surprised me. NYT has frequently disappointed (to put it mildly), but that statement seems ... reasonable. I have a couple of quibbles, but all in all, it's thoughtful and reasonable.

Re: Another Shooting

The killer shot his landlady (apparently alive in critical condition) and set fire to the neighborhood. 12 homes were damaged, at least 5 of them are a total loss. The killer's body is believed to be in one of the destroyed homes. https://www.staradvertiser.com/2020/01/19/breaking-news/2-honolulu-po...
