Sunday was a bit less of a black hole, although there’s a good chance I’ve forgotten much of it because I’m writing about it on Monday night past 11:00. Yikes. I didn’t sleep much Saturday.[…]

The feel-good from defeating the Monster early Tuesday bled into my most productive day Wednesday at work in more than a week. I think it didn’t carry over into the rest of Tuesday because I[…]
Tuesday wasn’t as bad, but I still wasn’t very productive. It’s beginning to alarm me. I struggled through the day, at the very least responding to emails, and did my best during a ninety-minute Zoom[…]
A newly formed political committee has been running last-minute television ads attacking Honolulul mayor candidate Keith Amemiya with sharp blasts of implication and innuendo. Aloha Aina Oiaio was registered with the Campaign Spending Commission as[…]

The mother of two young men assaulted by bouncers at the M Nightclub in early 2016 is disputing claims made by an attorney seeking the release of one of his attackers from federal detention. The[…]
I didn’t decide until I got behind the wheel, the smell of fresh laundry filling the car from the back seat, that I was going to the beach. I thought for sure, it being Friday[…]
