Pope Benedict XVI has canonized Father Damien for his work amongst the lepers in Hawaii. Barack Obama, an alleged Hawaiian, claims that he recalls "many stories from my youth about his tireless work there to care for those suffering from leprosy who had been cast out." Ah yes, who doesn't have fond memories of joining friends on the Hawaiian beaches to swap leprosy stories?
By the way, Mr president, have you considered moving the prisoners from Guantanamo Bay to an unused Hawaiian leper colony? There's great weather, the security of keeping prisoners on an island (instead of the mainland), plenty of available military personnel, and Hawaiian tourism is already in the dumper. And of course, you could be made a saint!
