The Honolulu Starbulletin

* I prefer the Honolulu Starbulletin over the Honolulu Advertiser. This time this letter amused me because once again it's people like the writer who contributes to what they are writing about. That is, when people move to O'ahu it results in a breakdown of the infrastructure and instead of blaming themselves they blame other people:


Why can't Oahu roads be like Big Isle's?

We visited the Big Island recently and I was struck by how nice the roads were. The 40-mile stretch up the Hamakua Coast was smooth as silk. Highway 11 up to the volcano was equally smooth. Smaller roads in Hilo town also were in great shape. We didn't see a single pothole anywhere. On Oahu, we are told that heavy rains caused the potholes. Does that mean it never rains in Hilo?
We were also amazed at how clean and trimmed the road shoulders and medians were. No opala. No weeds.

Driving on the Big Island was a real pleasure. I guess, living in Honolulu, I forgot what normal roads were like.
