Aloha!  Did any of you guys watch the NCAA Final basketball game yesterday?  I’ve never seen such poor shooting in a final game before … I don’t know if both UConn and Butler had the jitters or what, but they couldn’t make a basket to save their lives!  Some of my friends claim that both teams were in a defensive battle … NOT!  Those guys missed so many wide open layups, short jumpers, and put-backs that it was ridiculous!  This had to be the lowest scoring game in Finals history!  In any case, Carla is happy because her UConn team won …. yawn!

Got another busy day ahead – two morning meetings, followed by a lunch meeting, then squash, then maybe a recording session this afternoon, followed by a visit to KoAloha.  Here we go again …

I also had a question:  Why do our emergency vehicles always have to have their sirens blasting non-stop?  I mean, can’t they use them when approaching an intersection or in heavy traffic but otherwise leave them off?  I don’t understand why they need to use them while driving through a quiet residential neighborhood at 3am … it just pisses everybody off!  People tell me that Honolulu is the only place where this happens … in other cities on the mainland, emergency vehicles only use their sirens when in traffic or at an intersection – other than that, they turn it off and just keep their emergency lights on.  Go figure …

And … YAY!  They finally fixed the potholes on Kona St. in front of our IOLANI building!  Man, that road was in such bad shape that it was like driving on an obstacle course … everyone trying to dodge huge potholes and each other!  I want to send a big mahalo to the city’s street maintenance crew for coming down and repairing the street!

Aloha, “D”
