Hawaii Kai state Rep. Gene Ward has posted on his personal website (gene-ward.com) a map detailing the locations of homeless encampments in the community. It includes some fairly hard-nosed descriptions of certain homeless people, which raised some legal concerns.
Ostensibly this who’s who of Hawaii Kai homeless would alert permanent residents to their whereabouts, and convey the message that Hawaii Kai is not “friendly” to their encampments.
It seems unlikely that a map would scare off the homeless. But as a guide to social workers who can provide genuine help, perhaps a version of it can have some use.
The force of this galaxy was with her
Legions of “Star Wars” fans are mourning the death of Carrie Fisher, who radiated whip-smart intelligence and a wry sense of humor both on and off the screen.
The actress, author and Hollywood daughter, who died Monday after suffering a cardiac incident Friday, said she would always be identified with her role in “Star Wars,” which first screened in 1977.
Fisher once joked: “I am Princess Leia, no matter what. If I were trying to get a good table, I wouldn’t say I wrote Postcards (“Postcards from the Edge”). Or, if I’m trying to get someone to take my check and I don’t have ID, I wouldn’t say, ‘Have you seen “Harry Met Sally?”’ Princess Leia will be on my tombstone.” Rest in peace, Princess Leia.
