    Default Hawaii Senator/MoH recipient Daniel Inouye Dead

    I just got the news flash that Sen. Daniel Inoyue died tonight due to complications with a lung issue. He was 88.

    He was the oldest current senator, and 2nd longest serving senator in history, behind Robert Byrd. He was also a Medal of Honor winner for holding off a German attack, almost, literally, single-handed. After having part of his arm blown off, he kept firing on the Germans while protecting his unit. He was finally rendered unconscious when shot in the leg and lost too much blood.

    He famously called on Richard Nixon to resign, or face impeachment and later supeonaed Ronald Regan to testify in the Iran-Contra hearings.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    The Greatest Generation indeed.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
