Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

Her Name's Too Long for Her Driver's License
From the Sept. 16, 2013, Goldsboro (NC) News-Argus Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele doesn't fit on license." //// A Hawaiian woman's name is too long to fit on her driver's license. So, her real name wouldn't fit. Janice "Lokelani" has that above name, I'm not going to try to type it again, is in the midst of a fight to get here true name on the license. //// However, the license only has room for 35 letters. Her name is 35 letters plus a mark space used in the Hawaiian alphabet called an okina. //// Hawaii County issued her a license without her first name and with the last letter in her last name chopped off. //// Wonder If Five-O Has This Problem. --RoadDog
