Molokai Kaunakakai Harbor exclusion zone open for comment


The protesters, individuals from a mostly rural island, claim they had not been consulted on the tourist draw.

I think something’s backwards in this report:

A U.S. Coast Guard temporary security zone to protect protesters from Hawaii's Safari Explorer yacht cruise is ending, and the USCG seeks input on how the rule may be improved.

[Courthouse News Service, USCG Reviewing Safari Explorer Yacht Rules, 4/26/2012]

The zone was to protect the cruise ship from the protesters, not the other way around.

The article reports that there is a second comment period on the interim rule, and includes a link to a document with the regulations.

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
