If you hold a D.C. license…

…you’re screwed…again.   DC is switching to  the stringent  REAL ID licenses,  so even if you hold a newly issued one,  you’ll still have to switch,  even though the only visual difference will be a red star in the corner.   There must be a patent on stupidity in the District of Columbia,  held by those in charge of the asylum and those who elect them.

What sacrifice means…

Thanks to Andrew Stuttaford at The Corner for pointing out this  poignant piece   by Daniel Hannan on the meaning of sacrifice,  and the dangers of our losing our grasp of what the word truly means.   Fortunately for all of us,  Hannan writes as beautifully as he speaks,  with depth and clarity.
