Too funny and good. Kai Kahele has lost his equity in Hawaii. Stay with flying.

Yes, let's all pile on Representative Kahele. And while we're doing so, let's forget that he had the highest credibility in confronting the Navy on the pollution from Red Hill. Concern from non-veterans would have had far less chance of producing the change that now promises safe water. Also, while the Congressional salary plus what he has earned as a pilot may seem huge, my best guess is that in terms of wealth, Kai falls below far below the average wealth of his Congressional colleagues. And he needs to maintain residences in two very expensive areas: Hawaii (with the longest and most expensive commute) and DC or environs in Virginia or Maryland.
