    Is it my computer or the speed on the Honolulu Star Advertiser is slow. It takes my longer to read an article waiting for the download.

    Well I do have the print version delivered to my home. However I am reading the print version when I get home after work.

    The Honolulu Star Advertiser and the Iolani Palace might be just a memory if they're not supported.

    Who reads the print version? I don't. I get snippets of news from there online and other sources all over the free parts of the internet. No one wants to pay for news these days.

    The hard print version gets thinner, while the price goes higher.

    Totally agree the older version was so much more easier to navigate also.

    Looks like the Honolulu Star Advertiser did a massive website redesign.

    I don't like it, especially the fact that they seem to have discontinued the MOBILE SITE which was posted at this URL:

    http://www.staradvertiser.com/mobile/

    Now when I click the above it goes to a new site that seems to be less cluttered than the former design of the main site... but now the headlines on the side of the big picture are too tiny.

    The mobile site was highly simple to use, headline links easy to read and click on and free of clutter.

    I do not like the new design. The mobile site was not broken. Should not have abandoned it.

    Jon Stewart said on his last The Daily Show to look out for hyprocrisy. I found one in The Honolulu Star-Advertiser message board. My comments were not offensive with vulgar language, racist or sexist posts. They were satire to make points. They were still deleted. I can't support a newspaper that doesn't believe in Freedom of Speech. So, I had to cancel my subscription. And they say that the newspaper industry is dying.

    Must be a slow news day. Tonight's important breaking news:

    Police charged a 38-year-old man with theft after he allegedly stole a pair of sunglasses from a Waikiki store on Friday evening.

    It seems that the SA is into comedy writing for its Breaking News nowadays:

    Car collides with pig in Haleiwa; its condition is not known

    Police responded tonight to a traffic collision between a car and a pig in Haleiwa.
    Police dispatch said that just before 6:30 p.m., the car struck the pig at Paalaa Road and Uka Street.
    No one in the car was injured, the dispatch supervisor said.
    However, the condition of the pig was unknown, but probably it was not good if a car hit it, the dispatch supervisor said.

    The one and a half page advertisement cover in a newspaper is as annoying as the subscription cards in magazines.

    The same worker must still be in charge of titles.

    Blood found at 2 burglaries gets Moanalua man in trouble
    Police tracked down a burglary suspect after tests showed blood from the scene of two burglaries matched his.
    Kakugawa’s blood was recovered from both crime scenes, and his DNA was later matched to the blood that was recovered.
    Wasn't being a thief what "got him in trouble", and leaving behind DNA what "got him caught"?

    "Man appears in court for allegedly sex assaulting woman over 8 years"
    A 35-year-old Nanakuli man made his initial appearance in Honolulu District Court today for allegedly sexually assaulting an 18-year-old woman over an eight-year period....Police said Inere-Hanohano allegedly sexually assaulted the girl from Jan. 27, 2005 when she was in the seventh or eighth grade to June 28.
    Sex assault was from the age 10/11 through 18. Sex assault of a "woman" is bad enough, but how about the headlines reflecting the true slimy aspect of this pervert's crime of having sexually assaulted a CHILD FOR EIGHT YEARS!

    Good: Free online access is through Nov. 3.

    Bad: Which gave me the opportunity to spot this [Man sentenced in death of homeless man in Manoa church lot]:

    A judge sentenced David Orpin to 20 years in prison today for the beating death of a 70-year-old man in Manoa.[photo caption]
    A state jury found David Orpin, 60, guilty of manslaughter for the October 2010 beating death of 62-year-old Arthur Martinez.[article]
    ahhh..... ??
