Before you go…

During a crisis like this, it’s more important than ever to dig beyond the news, to figure out what government policies mean for ordinary citizens and how those policies were put together.

This is perhaps the biggest, most consequential story our reporters will ever cover. And at no other time in Civil Beat’s history have we relied on your support more. Please consider supporting Civil Beat by making a tax-deductible gift.

I know it's true everywhere that people like to point fingers at the government. But Hawaii is particularly bad about people complaining and talking A LOT,  but not wanting to be inconvenienced to move in ways that might help mitigate the problem.  And then the unions jump into the fray making sure that no one can do anything outside of their job description without getting in trouble. People need to start looking out for others besides themselves. Put down your phones and start looking at ways to be useful.

John,You should take great pleasure in how much thinking and commenting your cartoon has generated.That is the sign of potent contemporary cartooning that connects the people with the times.May I suggest, that you consider drawing a cartoon asking for a raise. May I also suggest that you make it comical.

This is becoming one of my favorites in CB (including Tom Yamachica).  So good.  You hit it right every time John.     Truth in jest.
