Bloggers dig where papers fear to tread on the Awana story
Ian Lind boldly posted an open letter to Governor Lingle last week. The letter also appeared in Wednesday's Honolulu Weekly.
One of Ian's questions is certainly too hot for the dailies:
One clear policy question is whether there is any truth to the reports that Mr. Awana, the second most powerful person in state government, was directly or indirectly arranging sexual “entertainment” for members of one or more official state delegations to foreign countries known for their famous but much-criticized sex trades.
The questions were asked on July 3 and we're still waiting for the answers.
