We at The Hawaii Herald hope you all enjoyed Kamehameha Day – that is, if you were lucky enough to get the day off. If you did, welcome back to work. If you didn’t, well, the weekend is just around the corner. Need help passing time until tomorrow? Try these two stories:
- Jenny Haworth writes in The Scotsman that Japanese “vampire” bugs could be let loose on the Japanese knotweed, which is wrecking havoc over Scotland and the UK. The bug, which sucks the sap from the plant, is needed in the country because the knotweed has no natural enemies in Scotland.
- Pretty cool photos from the International Center of Photography‘s new Japanese photo exhibit, and a lukewarm writeup of the show by Roberta Smith of The New York Times.
