Another head-scratcher. What does the ethnicity of Hawaii have to do with Superman? Does the "Suggested for You" algorithm think that the two are inter-connected through the Superman-as-Immigrant idea? Who knows!
These wicked-looking things are tools for carving wax. Bomboozled is a rabidly left-wing book-length abhorration of the Cold War and the USA's nuclear strength (that kept us alive and un-bombed).

I was born at a very early age, in a hospital to be near my mother. After appearing in productions of both GODSPELL and JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR in the 1970s, I found a wonderful wife and wrote many love songs to her, but not as many love songs as I write to God my Savior and Redeemer. We have three kids (one of each) -- wait for it -- blonde, brunette, and redhead.
