Even in Wonderland…

… things can go wrong. Those of you who have played American McGee’s Alice know that. And that was just a game…

Somehow the concept of a convicted monopolist arguing for increased competition struck me as particularly ironic tonight. It is comforting to know that some things never change… and important to remember that it is mostly about money. Unfortunately, it is also about choice, for all of us.

On the other hand, Real ID is not at all funny, on several levels. The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), a force in itself, has come out in favor of Real IDDMV is mostly concerned about administrative hassles, and those of you who experienced personally the Kafkaesque waiting in DMV lines before recent modernization can probably understand *that* part of their concern.

Historically though, several regimes of the 20th century worked out the administrative details, if that is the route that California chooses to go, and its only concern. Fortunately for all of us, the larger members of those regimes are no longer with us.
