Air Quality Index for Hawaii as of 8AM this morning:
Green is good and yellow is moderate. But PM 2.5 means particulates 2.5 micrometers and smaller. The affected eruption air pollution warning zones wrap around the Big Island from North Kona through the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park up east and north to Hilo to Kohala. If I find the official map I'll later show it here.
Earthquakes also caused cracks near the entrance of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in the only road connecting Hilo to Naalehu and Pahala, where I lived for five years. I recall floods then closing this Belt Highway. But it was passable after a day or so. If a fissure forms over the road, that would be a calamity.
A month ago I was watching Fareed Zakaria interview someone named Ronan Farrow on his new book, War on Peace, and was impressed. A young writer who seemed to know a lot about a range of subjects.
Farrow's full name begins with Satchel Ronan O'Sullivan, for Satchel Paige (famed black pitcher) and his grandmother, actress Maureen O'Sullivan. Said The New York Post, Ronan has Woody's wit and Sinatra's charm.
Ronan Farrow certainly had a tumultuous upbringing and flaws within his family. But there is no standard of perfection when it comes to a human life. He could well be more perfect than most. However, it all depends on what you consider to be ideal. We are all different in assorted ways. Soon, my posting on Who am I?.
