Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele? So where's the 'okina?
Every news agency and his dog is repeating the story of a Mrs Janice Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele whose surname at 35 characters plus an 'okina (a glottal stop shown as an apostrophe) is too long for the Hawaiian driving license which they say has a 35-character limit.
None of the growing number of reporters have noticed that there are only 34 characters shown on the license, so that both the final e and the 'okina are missing.
Nor have any of them reflected that they are reporting her name without the 'okina, so that they are all getting it wrong as well.
I don't know or care where it goes but then I'm not a journalist. At least I can count to 34. Even to 36.
