Required Reading

I like this piece from the NYT today, in which the editors asked people who had lived in the various places Obama lived, at the same times, to comment on what those places and times might have done to prepare him for the life he leads now. Since I lived in two of them, but only one (NYC) at the same time as Obama, it was food for thought.

I know, right? Especially that special sort of Hawaiian "let's get past politically correct color-blindness and back to reality" thing. When I call you haole, I'm identifying you. When I call you haole in the stupid boots, you can be offended.
