U.S. missile defenses in place to protect Hawaii from North Korean launch.
1. Why is it, ezzacatly, nobody has bothered to slap this loonie down? Do we have to wait 'til he blows something up -- probably not the thing he was aiming at?
2. Funny how the "armed self-defense" approach is A-okay at the macro scale in HI, but Heavens forfend they should entertain the notion of plain citizens being armed to protect themselves from footpads and highwaymen, ooooo nooooo. But perhaps I do their legislators a disservice; this is comin' from Teh Feds and mayhap local leaders would druther send out young women with leis to greet incomng fire.
3. Lost in translation: honest to Murgatroyd, if'n you're gonna get into a genitalia-size contest with the rest of the world, shouldn't you name your missile something other than "Taepodong-2?" (I've heard what they say about fellows who tap it more than once).
