Today on the House floor, members stood to congratulate BJ Penn, the current lightweight ultimate fighting champion. BJ had many fans within the House of Representatives - you'd be surprised at who follows ultimate fighting (err, Rep. Meyer?!). The resolution was introduced by Rep. Jerry Chang, who claimed that District 2 - South Hilo was the best district in the state, and if anyone has a problem with that, take it up with BJ.
