From John Prichett book, Honolulu's Big Mistake, One of the best books out there.
Just check out the #94 bus going from Kapolei to UH Manoa. In today's schedule it should get there in one hour. The Rail Crisis will never be able to beat that in a million years. Even if that choo choo can go 500 miles per hour. Check it out, minimum two hours and with all the discomfort thrown in for free. Biggest con job ever perpetrated on the citizens of this Island.
They are thinking Third City and avoid a Rail Disaster like the West.
Meanwhile the Present Rail Party is still trying to stop any building of Industrial or Business Parks in the Kapolei area. It would mean thousands of cars missing from the freeways to and from Honolulu. It would mean thousands of cars missing from downtown traffic. And "I coulda been home in 20 minutes."
"Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by Bruddah
And the people in the West are determined to make Kapolei the reality of Second City. They can dance in West Oahu. They can live, work and play in their own kuleana and let the rest of the Island pay for their mistakes. Millions and millions of dollars in profits. It's the money, Sonny.
