Time out

I’m putting the blog on hiatus for the remainder of 2011.

I have some other things I need to attend to, and the relatively slow news period between elections and legislative sessions seems the right time. I’ll still be writing my Volcanic Ash and flASHback columns in the Star-Advertiser.

Thanks so much for reading and participating. If you’d like to be notified when the blog starts back up, leave an e-mail address in the “Subscription” box at the top of the right sidebar on the home page. The e-mail won’t be used for any other purpose.

    Noooooooooo! Mr Shapiro, you will be sorely missed by cheapskates like me.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this when you have paying columns and deadlines, and well as other obligations to friends, family, and yourself. Thank you very much. I will miss your blog.

    Aloha for now, Dave – hope your ‘things’ are manageable & not serious. Will miss the opportunity to read/respond here – I’m a cheapskate like Kalaheo. 😉

    After getting banned as aikea808 before SAd’s pay switch, I don’t have a lot of love for them.

    Thanks, Dave, for the service you have been providing with your commentaries over the years. Take care of those other matters and hurry back.

    You probably hadn’t noticed, but I sometimes disagreed with you. But your blog has provided one of the best opportunities for a frank, usually civil, exchange of ideas on political and social issues.

    I look forward to your return. Take care!

    no problem,dave.and is there any truth to the rumor that you are starting a solar power company here and asking obama administration for funding?

    Not the best news of this week.

    When it comes to informed opinions, Dave has been the most reliable. One of the few folks who knows Big Island history and how it fits into Oahu centric picture.

    Going to miss you and your writing in the blogosphere. At least we can still count on your flASHbacks. Be well during your well-deserved hiatus…and fill it with lots of family time. 🙂
