The Wise Ways of the State of Hawaii 

What's the best way to run out of gas? Hawaii has the answer! Cap the price for gasoline! WhOOOO! Let's hope this idea catches on everywhere I don't live, so that in a rush to make some money (instead of the the far less popular no money) oil companies redirect crude to where I live. According to the local paper, the law allowing the PUC of Hawaii to cap gas prices was created last year, because they thought it "unfair" that gas cost more than it does on the mainland.

A note to Hawaiians: you live in the middle of the ocean. "Oil" has to be "shipped" to "Hawaii" and it is "much farther away" from other markets. Also (contrarians may be thinking that ships on the way to the mainland U.S. could easily stop in Hawaii), "real estate" is more "expensive" and "limited" for numerous "reasons" limiting the capacity for "refinement".

No word yet on the poi-and-pineapple fuelled car market rollout date. And if you're wondering, yes, I do have a grudge against Hawaii.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
