We learned an interesting fact about Hawaii: back in the late nineteen forties and early fifties Hawaii was so convinced that they would achieve statehood that some businesses opened with the name Forty-Niner! Alas, Alaska was admitted before they were, much to their surprise and dismay, and so~ the phrase Hawaii Five-O came to be!
