Rocket science: Ukraine firm may have helped N. Korean missiles

| | Aug 19 2017 - 12:06am | Comments

Ukraine is virtually an “anything goes” zone for American entrepreneurs — as well as for people like the North Koreans. That idea has been reinforced by news reports that a Ukrainian factory sold North Korea rocket engines for intercontinental ballistic missiles, which Pyongyang wants to arm with nuclear warheads so it can threaten the United States as well as peace in its region.

    Hugh Hefner’s death Wednesday at age 91 brought to mind a special piece of history that we have in our house: a Braille edition of Playboy magazine.

    Before we can possibly fix our problems, we must understand their cause. You recently reported on Hawaii’s problem with attracting and retaining an adequate number of doctors. The article pointed to the lack of money as a significant part of the problem, including Hawaii’s relatively low level of reimbursement for medical services compared to other states, considering our high cost of living.

    Do you remember what monstrous, contemptible or demonstrably false thing Donald Trump said one year ago? Six months ago? OK, last week? Probably not. The effect of this presidency-by-horrors is to induce amnesia in the public, as if we’d all been given a memory-loss drug.

    So the daily spirited battle between leftists and conservatives continues unabated in WHT. The never-ending Trump bashing for all of life’s frailties is interesting but increasingly boring. Meanwhile, Rome is burning before our very eyes. I refer to just a few growing problems unique to our Hawaii.

    We disagree with Mayor Harry Kim that this isn’t a trend.

    Many of the things in life we have imbued with a sense of sanctity that the object doesn’t typically have. These objects can be simple representatives of a larger principle or, when taken too far, can become the “graven images,” the idols, that ancient religions condemned.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Frank Dickinson’s satirical letter in Tuesday’s WHT in that it was so filled with irony and sarcasm that it gave me a really good laugh, and when times are a little crazy and tense, laughter can indeed be the best medicine.

    SEATTLE — In this city, which is a petri dish of progressivism, a prevailing theory is that when you raise the price of something, people will buy less of it, except when they do not. Another, and related, theory is that constitutional and statutory texts should be construed in the spirit of Friedrich Nietzsche: There are no facts, only interpretations.

    As I contemplate my future health care options, I wonder whether my premiums are north of $700 and going up 20 percent next year because the industry spent $78 million in lobbying. I don’t know.
