TMT has spent so much money to date. What's a little more? No need to truck TMT construction supplies that can be blocked on the road. Just fly supplies and personnel in!
Weird day on the roads today. Drove past that pedestrian accident on Kapiolani and Mahukona, probably minutes before it happened. Had a minivan cab in the #2 lane, an Altima? in the #1 lane. When I passed the accident, I saw the cabbie on the phone, probably 911, a few people near the double solid yellow talking, and a lady face down on the pavement not moving.
A few minutes later, I'm leaving Symphony and a HFD hook and ladder has the #1 left turn blocked on Ward makai bound. It also blocked the #1 lane mauka bound. A white utility truck in front with a big ass chain connecting the truck to the hook and ladder, like it was towing the hook and ladder. Then I see the wheel came off the right rear of the hook and ladder. Search for the wheel and it is on the sidewalk near the Blaisdell ticket office parking lot. Then a jack wagon in a yellow Camaro convertible turning left onto Piikoi from Kapiolani. Must have been a tourist.
So, I almost smashed a bicyclist yesterday. Got off H1 West at the Humane Society off ramp. Head down Waialae Ave where it turns into S. King. Bicyclist comes from Kuhio Elementary going towards UH in the eastbound lane. He crosses the eastbound lanes and I'm right there in the #1 lane heading to Moiliili Longs. Cars are coming in the eastbound lanes and the guy is straddling the double solid line. Holy Crap, this guy is gonna die! I slam on my brakes and he just squeezes by! He stops me at Longs and apologizes and said he didn't see me. I told him to be more careful because I'm not the one that would get hurt.
Happens all the time....
I kept thinking, he is not coming this way, but he kept coming!
One night, at band camp, I was coming down Nuuanu Avenue just approaching Kuakini Steret and this guy on a bike comes flying from Kuakini Street and blows the red light and makes a right onto Nuuanu Avenue makai bound. I slam on my brakes and ABS them hard! I couldn't even see his red blinking strobe light over my hood.
I told him, damn dude! He kept saying, sorry sorry sorry....he was in the zone...I said almost "Dead Zone!"
Dave Chapelle Sticks and Stones is hilarious! Must see!
Those cops sure got there fast!
Ooh, convoy on Sunday! I dunno about some of those guys. I passed the demonstrators at Maunalua Bay this afternoon and one guy gave the thumbs down to somebody driving by. The driver probably yelled build the telescope or something. Unfortunately, the driver is not someone who is spotlighted, it is the protestors. It reminds me of the Lingle/Cayetano sign wavers. The Lingle supporters would give the thumbs down to lots of people.
They're going to make more enemies and convert supporters to just non-supporters in my opinion.
That's my thinking as well. I sure hope their vehicles are in compliance for being on the road. i.e. current safety/reg, proper darkness tint, Recon if mods require Recon. Sure would suck if they got ticketed, or car got impounded.
The Far Left is nuts!!!! Crazy Mazie!!!
My new patch....lol
