RTL-Day Minus 6 (continued)--Datelines and Separated at Birth

One of the cool things about Samoa is the fact that you can travel to yesterday just by going a few hundred miles. Consider the map: Notice that if you fly (or swim, if you swim fast) from Tonga to Samoa, you go from today back to yesterday.

Samoa: The last place on earth where it is today.

The reason that this is important is that the Prime Minister announced today that the protesters' last appeal is rejected.

Which reminds me: Consider this "separated at birth" sequence. Is it just me, or are these guys related?
