A passing and some thoughts

Don Ho passed away, see this if ya missed it.

He was a veteran and pretty much everyone stationed in, or passing through Hawaii knew of him.

I never managed to see his show while I was living in Honolulu, but I did work with him a couple of times.

The thing that struck me about him was that even during a difficult video shoot (maybe film - it was nearly 30 years ago) he was smooooth.

Our work was in the actual studio where Tiny Bubbles was recorded albeit since gutted and updated.

He was a character, and will be missed... if only as an icon that meant Hawaii.

Newspapers and comic strips

I've mentioned before that I don't watch TV news, nor listen to talk radio. I try to get my daily news as close to the source as possible. I've little interest in someone else's opinion on what was said. Just the facts Ma'am.

One exception is the comic strips. And my local paper dropped Mallard Fillmore!

Just in case some don't know the name... see this.
