Real ID creates the largest single database about U.S. people that has ever been created. This is the people who brought you long lines at the DMV marrying the people at DHS who brought us Katrina. It’s a marriage we need to break up.

Tim Sparapani, as quoted in National ID Card Rules Unveiled

Real ID is back in the news.  Secretary Janet Napolitano (Department of Homeland Security)  is looking at cost effective alternatives…the most controversial of which is an “enhanced” driver’s license with RFID.  It’s making big waves with privacy advocates who see the technology being used for nefarious purposes.
