Just for fun…searching the NY Times

I was fiddling around this morning and tried searching for my name in the New York Times. I was surprised to find several mentions.

The first mention I found was in a 1986 news story by Richard Halloran, “Navy cites 2 accidents with nuclear arms.”

It described data on nuclear weapon accidents released by the Navy in the course of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit in which I was the plaintiff.

I was quoted in another story in 1992, this time concerning allegations of sexual misconduct against the late Senator Dan Inouye (“Accusations Against Hawaii Senator Meet a Silence in His Seat of Power“).

Ian Y. Lind, editor of The Hawaii Monitor, a political newsletter, traces the culture of implied intimidation to the plantation system, which was overturned by Mr. Inouye and other Japanese-American veterans who returned from World War II, entered law and politics and replaced the old oligarchy with a new oligarchy of one-party rule.

“There is some reality, and considerable perception, that the blacklist the plantations used is now used by the people who control state government,” Mr. Lind said.

And in 2008, the NY Times Editorial Board cribbed from my description of the overwhelming attendance at Hawaii’s Democratic Party Caucuses, as people lined up for hours to get in and vote for Barack Obama (‘Sweet Chaos’ at the Hawaii Caucuses).

Unfortunately, the link went to the main page of my blog and not to the specific entry. So here’s the proper link to the post in question (“Hawaii Democratic Party Caucuses–Sweet Chaos!!“).

Meda also shows up with several entries in the archives.

On Kahala Beach just after dawn

There wasn’t much of a sunrise this morning, just a lightening of the gray clouds and a few rays of sun escaping from above.

A lone fisherman trying his luck.

Still a beautiful day.
