    summarizes much of Hawaii's history. Toss in the US Marines and a few other wrongdoers, and you get the whole period between the first visits by whaler's and the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
