The message? According to Josh Green, the “search and rescue” efforts in Lahaina are over; no more survivors will be found; sign up to receive your FEMA goodies; and hand over your DNA “for closure” (Peggy Hall documents the uselessness of DNA for identification purposes in drastic fire scenarios here.). In the end (the subtext goes), there are not even that many dead or missing whom the government will attest to. Good media lapdogs know what that means: That’s that.

Thank goodness the Hawaii Star Advertiser, for one, is not buying. From today’s editorial (August 29):

Literally thousands of students who had been attending West Maui schools have not re-enrolled at a DOE school or for remote learning — and the DOE must uncover where they have gone.

… the DOE must account for the 2,025 students who had been attending Lahaina’s four public schools before the fires, and who are now unaccounted for. That’s about two-thirds of the Lahaina student body who had not enrolled in other Hawaii public schools or the state’s distance learning program as of last week. State officials have said they don’t yet know how many have left the system for private schools or the mainland, are pausing schooling, or are among those missing after the Lahaina fire.

That’s a mystery that must be resolved….

    The whole affair stinks to high heaven. I’m afraid that we will ever know the truth of this disaster. Rather like the burning tower block in London. Lots of official lies but no real way of uncovering those lies

    Btw, off topic I know but does anyone know what happened to Gonzalo Lira? Have we got any clues? I’ve seen nothing myself

    Gonzalo presumably didn’t make it and cannot be put on display. I hope otherwise.
