Just In Case You Had Any Illusions About What Is Coming V

It's back:

SOVEREIGNTY for Hawaiians appeared to have been shelved for a long duration in June when the Senate voted to block it from proceeding. The proposal has gained new life with the Democratic takeover of Congress, although questions remain about the sentiment of the House and whether President Bush would veto the measure. Those issues need to be put to the test.

Meanwhile, ground was broken yesterday for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the Mall. So much for Dr. King's dream for his children that they "... will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

(Fortunately, I resisted the little devil on my left shoulder suggesting I make a crude remark about M. Akaka vice macaca.)

Fine, cut them loose. I'd rather go to Fiji anyway.

So if Hawaii leaves will we add Puerto Rice as a state? That way we don't have to change the flag.
