What year is this again?

I'm watching CNN and they're talking about the big quake (6.3, apparently) that hit Hawaii this morning. Power's out all over, phones are jammed, cell towers are down, etc. etc. What's-her-name on CNN is talking to a reporter from somewhere who happens to be vacationing on the Big Island relatively near the epicenter of the quake.

The reason for "What year is this again?" Well, the vacationing reporter was happy that he had earlier been able to reach his family...wait for it...wait...waaaaait...."back in the United States."

Sigh.

  • What? I don't get it? Isn't Hawaii a territory like Alaska, Puerto Rico, and Taiwan?

    Or was that the Louisiana Purchase? I can't remember...
