Plate lunch, with a side of Hawaiian political history.
Unfortunately, the politics weren't as yummy as the plate lunches, but the things that happened, happened, and those who love the islands don't pretend that they didn't, or that it didn't matter.
In this reading from her book Unfamiliar Fishes, Sarah Vowell does a fascinating job of dancing between the two - and gives a marvelous description of how one of my favorite island meals came to be.
Amazing. It's almost as though Ms. Vowell had decided to answer Essay Question Number Six in Carol Anne's New Writing Project!
