Same old politics
Sounds like once again we’ll see the same, cowardly “yes, with reservations” votes that afflicted previous sessions of the City Council (“By the People, For the People,” Jan. 30). The best we could hope for is that some of these members would (figuratively) grow a pair.

Gambling: if we saw what Big Money could do to our election process, for the first time in Hawaii, watch out. Gaming giants are going to come calling. And like we didn’t have a clue (“funny, so many polling stations ran out of ballots”) before, there’s dancing in those gold-paved streets, with their bags packed, already. Have you heard of those State Legislatures’ gaming law attorneys? They’re toasting Mr. Souki now, with umbrellas in their mai tais. Hawaii jackpot us.
