Since 9/11, there has been a push for a "national ID" card to replace the myriad of state licenses and such. I still don't understand why there's such a fuss about it as privacy groups are complaining of such an idea. If that card could replace my state drivers license and Social Security card (with the SSN encoded on the card), with "proof of citizenship" acceptable to Canadian authorities (we had some hassle last week from a Canadian immigration officer when we decided to go from Detroit to Windsor on a whim to gamble), I don't see what the problem is...

As for drivers licenses, my OH license that I got in 1997 had my SSN on it (no choice) and a magnetic strip on the back. My current IL license doesn't have my SSN on it and has a weird-looking bar code on the back.

I've got one of the last old styllr TX DLs made. The machinery was so worn out that it burned the area over my signature. The DPS dent me a card stating the probelm incase anyone ever questioned its authenticity. I was due for renewal last year, but when I changed my address, they extended me 2 extra years.
