Honolulu Railathon or the Running of the Rails

Dear Editor,   May 28, 2015

So we have another “unplanned” Rail cost increase!  And it will be just another one in a long series.  But the good news is that we could create the Honolulu Railathon or the Running of the Rails!  Instead of raising taxes, the government should sponsor an annual 26 mile race like the Honolulu Marathon but along the Rail route or on the track itself (3 stories high of concrete 20 miles long near the coast – uglily out of place in a tropical paradise but what a spectacular raised view if you’re running on it!). 

As an added bonus, we could do similar as Spain’s Running of the Bulls in which people intentionally get in the path of rampaging bulls!  Why not have people run away from the trains!?  Or have para-gliders try to land on it while it is moving!? Thrill seeking tourists would love dodging the actual trains!

Facts not Ideology

Dear Editor,     May 6, 2015

I am a left leaning mainlander Haole who hopes to one day be able to share soil with you.  I do appreciate your website and journalistic integrity which is so lacking in so many websites. I realize you are right leaning, but you have the wherewithal to print the facts and truth; not just ideology. I certainly respect and appreciate that. I look forward to every day of your reporting, opinion and expose.

Thank you for the trouble, the price you pay, and continuing to exist to inform all of honest news.
