I thought the article was pithy and funny. Hell you had folks on all the talk shows (cable networks) talking. I loved how they made fun of this bill on the Fox News Show, Red Eye, it was just hysterical. I hope you can find the clip. Maybe in the Activity Pit! Happy Writing. I love your umbrella book!!! Thanks. Some folks are just haters anyway so no matter what you say, they will still post ridiculous things to you. Thanks for the article. It was very funny!Love the feedback! It's always enlightening to see the way people react to humor columns, even if some of them miss the point. This was a satirical take on the absurdity of trying to send a certain segement of society "back to where they came from." I imagined native Hawaiians would find it particularly bizarre to see who gets to try to say who gets to stay in Hawaii and who has to "go back to where they came from."
It would be interesting to know how many of you online readers, especially those not in Hawaii, understood that Honolulu Lite is a HUMOR column, not a news article or straight political essay? Maybe "Honolulu LITE" needs to be put in bigger type.
And for those of you reading this, Mr. Memminger is an award winning writer. I never miss a column.
