We were walking in Waikiki yesterday and I noticed some unusual road construction going on. It's unusual because the roads looked brand new, yet they were being repaved. So I started asking the locals why the streets were being repaved, when they were brand new. The number one response was that there must be a gas leak or something. A cop I asked had the same opinion, that it was a waste of taxpayer money for one of Obama's "Shovel ready projects."
Worse yet, the North Shore of Oahu's roads are falling apart. Why aren't they being repaired? It just doesn't make any sense. And the contractors are breaking water mains, tying up traffic, and causing a mess.
