Earlier this year the local telephone company, Hawaiian Telcom, hired... and no, I am not making this up... the former CEO of ENRON as the new CEO of Hawaiian Tel.

This week Hawaiian Telcom filed bankruptcy.

Why try anymore? The lowest, most vile, most greedy, most out-and-out evil scumbags on the face of the earth reap the greatest rewards, while people who are good, honest, and hard-working are forced, by law or by economics, to subsidize the wealthy parasites.

Each night, as I head off to bed, I find myself hoping that I will not wake up in the morning.

I am out of words for the rage I am feeling.

It's so hard to make sense of it all.

But don't you dare lose hope. Believe in karma, or "last shall be first" or the beauty of a perfect beer.

But don't ever let those people rob you of the joy of a new day. Life can change on a dime for the better and often does.

I agree whole-heartedly with Pastilla. I'm glad she replied before I did, because I don't think I could have put it quite so well.

It still gives me the chills how insightful David was when he analyzed that commencement speech that Pastilla linked. I think David caught on to a subtext the speaker subconsciously included.

To David: Don't let this keep you down. You've got friends and students who love you. You've got good days ahead.

You should solicit for a CEO position. The only skill you need and haven't got yet is a spending-skill. But you can acquire that with some 'on the job' training.
