Genesis Namakaokalani Lee Loy (1919-2006)
Requiescat in pace: Advocate for Hawaii sovereignty dies, 86.

To be honest, I've never heard of this gentleman before, but from the obituary we gather that he was a true patriot of Ka Lahui Hawaii, the Hawaiian Nation, and a true Catholic; he had fourteen children. What better way to serve one's country? Funeral Mass will be heald at the Malia Puka O Kalani Catholic Church.

Like that great fellow Buffalonian* Grover Cleveland, I think Hawaii should have remained sovereign**. It was under William McKinley, who was capped in Buffalo by anarchist Leon Frank Czołgosz, that Hawaii was annexed.

*Another The other great Buffalonian President, Millard Fillmore, was a "doughface" (a Northerner with Southern principles), and refused to drape his house in black after Lincoln was capped on Good Friday, 1865.

**See his message to Congress in 1893: Grover Cleveland Opposes the Annexation of Hawaii.
