When I was home in Hawaii a couple of weeks ago I decided to dig through the boxes in my mom's garage and find some of my old Na Opios (the lower school yearbook at Punahou School). I was looking for a picture of one of the big kids, three years ahead of me at a school named Barry Obama, now more commonly referred to as Barack. For reference, in 1973 Barry was a big 6th grader and I was just a little 3rd grader.
Here is the picture I found (I blurred out the other non-public figures) apparently taken at a pencil chewers convention -- the Na Opio never featured stiff formal portraits:
Serendipitiously, when I was getting the link for the Punahou School reference above, I found an interesting article that just came out today describing Obama's growing up in Hawaii and his time at Punahou. (It even quotes my old girlfriend's brother and my 8th grade typing teacher).
My big question is (if you look in the upper left hand corner of the picture) whatever did happen to the metric system that the whole country was going to adopt?
Obama in '08!
Pau for now...
