Hawaii mourns the loss of entertainer Do Ho. My childhood memories include his theatre, a big geodesic dome on the grounds of the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. Perhaps this big bubble was an echo of "Tiny Bubbles." Buckminster Fuller's geodesic domes were somewhat popular in the 1960's and 1970's. Today both Don Ho and his dome are no longer with us, but his daughter Hoku continues to perform.
