The University of Hawaii Board of Regents approved a plan today to name four UH buildings or programs after the late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye. 

The four are:

>> The Daniel K. Inouye Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education (C-MORE) at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

>> The Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy at UH-Hilo.

>> The Daniel K. Inouye Allied Health Center at UH-Maui College.

>> The Daniel K. Inouye Electronics Technology Building at Kauai Community College.

“Senator Inouye impacted the University of Hawaii in ways that cannot be measured,” said UH President M.R.C. Greenwood, in a news release. “Today’s board action gives us the opportunity to thank Senator Inouye and to emphasize the many things he helped us accomplish and the many things he has inspired us to accomplish in the future.”

The "great" senator Dan Inouye left this country in bad shape. He presided over a US Senate that hasn't produced a budget in 3 yrs. He was a inefective at best.

I think the legislature should rename the state as Inouye. After all, without all of the funds he directed our way we'd be a third world country.

Rename McKinley High School after Sen. Inouye. It would make Hawaiians very happy.

Here it comes - everything named after the late great Senator Inouye. Why not rename the state "Inouye" while we are at it? There will be so many buildings and places named in his honor, it not only will totally confuse everyone, there will be nothing left to name after Obama.

If McKinley High School isn't renamed after Sen. Inouye, then rename it after Pres. Obama.
