My name is Duane Browning.
I was born in Fayetteville, NC and raised in the Kalihi area of Honolulu, HI.
I've established this blog to share information I have received doing research on issues and topics that I care about, as well as sharing stories of events in my life, past and present. Much of this blog consists of my relating opinions on various things, from the public sector as well as my private life.
I'm not shy about giving my opinions on things that may seem controversial, often with little regard if my opinions are unpopular.
In case it matters to my readers, my ancestry is Hawaiian, Chinese, Portuguese and Irish on my mother's side; Irish and German on my father's.
My general attitudes on things have been shaped my living in North Carolina for the first few years of my life, as well as the bulk of my childhood lived in Kalihi. My subsequent years of living and working have also caused me to change opinions that I had previously held. I have to admit that my opinions on some issues today is markedly different from when I was a young man.
