Sounds like a police state to me. I've never been asked for an ID anywhere, that's ridiculous.
Ridiculous? I have to agree. There are a bunch of ridiculous laws, i.e., a law reguireing me to purchase a product I may not want or need, in one case health insurance.
PS: Why the change? You responded to one of my posts and did not call me a sicko or sign off with one of your favorites?
