It was exciting to go online and read the complete opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the ceded crown lands (The Maui News, April 1).
It is good to know that the "Apology Resolution" doesn't carry the weight or any rights as frequently is claimed by Hawaiian rights activists. The money from the sale of crown lands can be used to benefit all of the citizens of Hawaii and not just those of Hawaiian descent.
I hope everyone interested in this subject will read the opinion online and see that common sense has prevailed in the Supreme Court and the law has been upheld. This was a great result for all the citizens of the 50th state of the United States.
