"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Give it up for the State of Hawaii.

-- All of the former prisoners of war from the latest conflict with Iraq are being invited to Hawaii.

Gov. Linda Lingle said that the offer to Pfc Jessica Lynch, who was freed in a dramatic rescue, is now being extended to seven other former POWs.

Lynch was badly wounded in a firefight with Iraqi forces and is still in an Army hospital. Lingle said her state is a great place to rejuvenate and heal.

The POWs and their immediate families will be hosted to an all-expenses-paid visit to Maui. Officials are still working out the details.
