Spot on!  Saiki has taken a noticeable step back, probably trying to save face for his run at Lieutenant Governor.  But his puppets are still in action on the same soap boxes.I sure hope the Republicans or some non-partisan group brings some good candidates. I'd hate to see a ballot with LG Saiki as the lesser of all evils.

This one made me nostalgic for the Honolulu Weekly. You're a treasure, Pritchett.
