Off to the DMV!

Well, now I have to go hang around the Division of Motor Vehicles to get my driver’s license renewed, and I hope, I dearly hope, that it won’t take all morning.

Born and raised in New Jersey, lived here and drove here all my life, all they want today is my birth certificate, marriage certificate, Social Security card, and Medicare card. There is no truth at all to the rumor that starting next year, they’ll also want to see your third grade report card and a video of your christening before they’ll renew your driver’s license.

As Ronald Reagan said, government is not the answer to the problem: government is the problem.

I wonder how hard it would be to drive in New Jersey if you’re here illegally. Or do you just do it?
