Well, that's just confusing. Haha. And of course I know the White Cliffs of Dover and all, but the county? Nope. I tried York several times, cause, you know, it has four letters. Terribly sorry if I somehow offended any of you Brits in any way by assuming this.

Not really, but is the White Cliffs of Dover all you know? Soon I'll discover people have never heard of it, so don't tell me...

What do you mean, "no longer"? Has that changed recently, like the Nile has relinquished part of its course to another river? Fair enough, the Amazon may hold more water and have an overall greater system, if you count in all its tributaries. But the length of the Nile from source to its delta has always been considered as the longest.

Hilo is a lovely place. Part of the movie "Black Widow" was filmed there. The views are amazing and the town is friendly. The coffee they grow there is delicious! How can it be forgettable? I think it's nice to appreciate beautiful places.

Naha?? That's obscure. The New York Times Crossword - which LOVES 4 letter geography where half the letters are vowels - has only featured it 3 times this century, and 9 times total since Will Shortz took over as editor. He's known for (in addition to being NPR's Puzzle Master) cleaning up the dreck that populated the puzzle prior his hiring. FYI, Naha was featured 78 times before the Shortz era that began the in mid 90s.
