Jackie Calmes wants to make sure the folks at Fox News don’t get all confused again:
Pool Report #2a, Saturday Dec. 27, 2008
Apologies to mainlanders for my omission in Pool Report #2 in not describing “the shaka” hand gesture that President-elect Obama flashed as he left Semper Fit this morning: Fold three middle fingers and extend the pinkie and thumb. Looks nothing like a terrorist fist jab.

Also, she gets to the bottom of the dastardly power outage:
Pool Report #3, Saturday, Dec. 27, 2008KailuaAt just after 12:30 p.m. Hawaii time (5:30 ET), Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt issued the following statement on the power outage throughout Oahu on Friday night and Saturday morning:“Power went out during the 7 o’clock hour last evening at the residence in Kailua where the President-elect and his family are staying. Power was restored to the residence during the 6 o’clock hour this morning. The Obama family is grateful for the offers of assistance from local officials.”An Obama aide said that the Obama party did not use generators to provide power during the outage. Generators were offered but the press pool could not find out who did the offering.Jackie CalmesNew York Times
