lokahi 2 years, 6 months ago on LARSON: Year of the snake nothing to whine about

Loved reading your recent article regarding Year of the Snake! You've balanced what for many (including myself--in the past) is preceived and demonized as a scary evil, dark venomous cold blooded creature and given a warm personality (Rose), worthy of beauty, and affection (a pet even!) and "healing" (Viagra? hmmm...yes indeed love is a cure all!). Being a transplant from Hawaii and of Chinese Hawaiian cultural heritage, I have always looked forward to how you celebrate, honor and link us to the traditions of those who make up the community and neighborhoods... Thank you!
