Maui Zowee: Hawaiian Island Takes on Junk Cars


Okay, so Bakersfield wasn't a surprise, but to us mainlanders who've never had a chance to visit the Islands Formerly Known as Sandwich, we're a bit shocked that Hawaii's got an apparently serious junk car problem. Having declared the island a "disaster area," alliteratively-named Governor Linda Lingle has authorized the towing of the cars to a site at the old Puunene Airport, a temporary location until the island can finally cobble together a Department of Health-certified scrapyard. Is it just us, or does "Old Puunene Airport" sound like a euphemism for female genitalia?
