Demographics

No worry, it is just numbers. Oahu has almost one million people, and Honolulu has less than 40% of that total. That gives the rest of the island a little strength but not what it should have. I have found this out because Platinum Horseshoe blog is doing so well with so little to offer the reader/dancers. If there are 30 thousand dancers on Oahu, (no I didn't count them) then we should have 18000 dancers on the outskirts, more than half. They are over due to live, work and play in their own kuleanas. Kapolei as Second City is a good beginning, and then there has to be the Third City.


Traffic to and from Honolulu is without question "bad" and in Honolulu it is even worse. Everyone already knows that the Rail is one big Money disaster. And some have already become multi-millionaires in a short time. The name "Gravy Train" is very convenient as is also "Easy Money." The estimates have gone from the original 5 Billion dollars to over ten now. It is costing more than one million dollars per day. And who is getting the money? No body knows and nobody is going to find out either. The Present Rail Party has made sure of that. More electric cars are coming in. When you are stuck in a traffic jam. Your gas buggy is burning up the gas. In an electric, you just stopped running. Simple?


Meanwhile, we are trying to find a group ready to make a social dance club on the Waianae Coast. Now that I am beginning to know my demographics, I can see enough dancers on the Waianae Coast developing a good dance club with some very good people. Then there is the North Shore. Not only from the North Shore but also from the Northern part of the Central Valley and from the Northern part of the Windward Side. Can anybody see that? Of course I don't know if it will be night clubs or the social clubs first. Either way there will be dancing in West Oahu. And most of the social dancers in this century understand that the day of the Big Bands and the Big Ballrooms is over.
