Life in Hawaii through the perspective of the plate lunch. The Plate Lunch as served by Honolulu Mark is a mixed plate metaphor for the way people, their stories and their food, come together on one plate to make Hawaii paradise. Honolulu Mark has returned home to his Hawaii roots but eats, shoots and leaves extend to my second home, Seattle.

Spooks on Parade
Compared to some of the recent now exposed covert actions of the Central Intelligence Agency, the "bad ol' days" pale in comparison.
Releasing the family jewels is a big step forward for the C.I.A. But don’t revel in the glasnost just yet. There are still troves upon troves of documents that the C.I.A., F.B.I., and other intelligence agencies are keeping locked away. Dirty tricks from the 1960’s and ’70s make for interesting reading. But understanding what went wrong before 9/11 makes for better intelligence.
