NOTE TO READERS: This essay has two versions. The full version is filled with details and provides numerous references to prove all the main points. Therefore the full version is very lengthy, and some readers might get lost in the details and lose track of the main narrative. A shorter version of about 1100 words was published in Hawaii Reporter online newspaper on August 18, 2009. But the short version has few details and no references. So, choose which one you want to read (or start short and then go long!).
