“He wanted to show me something: There are three words printed on Pulama’s business cards: “Preservation. Progress. Sustainability.” His work — preservation — is one of those words. “It’s the first one,” he noted.

But maybe he didn’t anymore.”
from “Larry Ellison Bought an Island in Hawaii. Now what?” by Jon Mooallem
