Different spellings of obnoxious
In Monday’s Nov. 6, TGI cartoonist Stahler shows a man asking a woman “What’s a 5-letter word for “obnoxious’?” “T-R-U-M-P” is her response.
Poor woman is a terrible speller. The correct letters are “O-B-A-M-A”.

Drivers, please just pay attention
I would like to thank Allan Faye and James Beardmore for bringing up the subject of tailgating.
This is a dangerous thing to do and I must apologize since I have been guilty of this practice. I am aware and when ever I find myself following too close I immediately back off. So, I am sorry, but let me point out a few things.
Whenever I get too close, it is usually someone in front of me going 5-10 miles below the posted speed limit. There is nothing wrong with that and as long as the driver in front of me is keeping a steady pace it is fairly simple to adjust.
On a similar note, something not nearly as dangerous but equally irritating is the drivers who need to maintain half of a football field between themselves and the car in front of them.
This happens regardless of how fast we are going and usually involves texting and driving, (which is illegal). When this happens, the result is not only do I miss a lot of lights, but plenty of cars that should be behind me are then in front of me.
In no way is this an excuse for tailgating, it is just a contributing factor in my daily commute. I would just like to tell other drivers, (and you know who you are) it is not always all about the journey. Some of us actually need to get somewhere. Be safe out there.

Lots to desire about government
The “Fifth Sense” is a must read book, as is “KPD Blue” and “Superferry Chronicles.” I would vote for Ken Taylor all day every day, but then again, only U.S. citizen voters purple people eater makes voting a big mistake status quo, on the part of those brainwashed to believe in any of the past or present over 50 years. Really? No voting! Boycott voting in any of US rigged gigs.
Look what the choices presidential had out of the continent, DC. The Clinton Foundation all the way down to Anahola nonprofit corporate federal umbilical cords.
CSPAN had a wonderful military congressional meeting video that outlined PMRF 2022 upgrades and thus 01/2017, staging at a Civilian Airport, are now regularly seen USAF F22-Raptors or Osprey off PMRF runway. Where did the wonderful legends and kanikapila go?
Hope you are ready for one of two things: Missile strike via NK or HULI the present regime practices, policies and procedures. I am sure you all agree.
