My friends, Christopher Odoca and Ana Won Pat-Borja, and I are organizing a discussion on the Guam Military Build-Up at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa Law School.  It will be held at the Law School's Moot Court Room on April 1, 2010 from 12:45-1:55 Hawaii Standard Time (April 2 from 8:45-9:55am Chamorro Standard Time).  Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz of the 30th Guam Legislature is the keynote speaker and will be joined by Dr. Wendy Wiltse of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Region 9).  I invite you to join us at the William S.
