This analysis [“War on the Environment,” Aug. 1] by Tom Coffman, one of Hawaii’s major political writers, brilliantly connects state and local government with big money interests who are only looking out for themselves to build the useless rail project.

Thanks to Cayetano’s heroic campaign, it is now up to the public to reject this cockeyed rail scheme. It is amazing that rail pushers have gotten this far with their scam–they almost got away with it thanks to the power of money o flood the media with misinformation and steal elections.
