After 36 years, Aloha, Akaka

Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii, delivered his farewell address on the Senate floor on Wednesday, after 22 years in the Senate and 14 in the House. He touched on veterans’ issues and rights for Native Hawaiians before weighing in with some advice for solving the fiscal cliff: “If we paddle together in unison, we can travel great distances. If we paddle in opposite directions, we will go in circles,” he said. Akaka ended his remarks with the Hawaiian phrase, “A hui hou,” which means “until we meet again.”
