Changing times, so trust no one
Debi Dill’s letter to TGI this Sunday sure matches my experience yesterday morning. My Saturday edition of The Garden Island newspaper was stolen. Yes, stolen.
I saw Lito toss my TGI paper by my garage door as I was washing breakfast dishes. I figured I would pick it up when I went out to go to Foodland. Hah! No paper. Someone just plain stole it. Sign of the time, so trust no one!
I was born and raised in Waimea in 1932, and would spend summer times at our Hanalei Beach House. In those days, no one took their car keys out of the ignition or locked the car door. No one even locked their house door.
Ms Dill has it right. Nowadays, trust no one and expect to get ripped off. Someone scored one of my credit cards just this past week and it’s now canceled.
So, all of you, on our once-sacred Kauai, trust no one. The newspaper theft was a puny loss, but the stealing action itself bears noting.
