Get Shopping Centers to Chip in for Rail Costs


Going over budget for rail transit was a forgone conclusion. Now that it has come to pass, let's not fold our tent and slink away with a half-built white elephant.

There are a number of good ideas about how to finish paying for it. The cost for placing utility lines underground along Dillingham Boulevard should be shared by all who use them.

If Gov. David Ige is correct that "every single transit system I have used across the country has private participation in the stations. We have zero dollars in private participation" -- why? It's time Ala Moana and Pearlridge shopping centers, and other businesses who stand to profit big-time, chip in.

Lastly, why all the angst about extending the general excise tax surcharge? Extend it until the thing is paid for. Let the tourists help. They'll be using it, too.

How respectful is that? I have heard many times over the decades that the Hawaiians should be grateful that the U.S. took over their country.

If someone stole land from you, would you be grateful and respectful to the thieves? No way. I recently saw a T-shirt that read, "Hawaiian by birth, American by force." That says it all.
