Government Planning

Our government was apparently unaware of the potential damage from a hurricane like Katrina, and thus unprepared. Similarly, it appears someone either didn’t notice that massively increasing the requirements for passports would, shockingly, increase passoport applications.

Either they don’t particularly care, they didn’t plan, or more likely congress figured they could mandate it all without providing the appropriate resources. I would guess that the next move is to call the bureaucrats before congressional committees and complain about their inefficiency, thus placating the voters.

Let me go out on a limb here. I bet it won’t be long before somebody dangerous gets a passport, and the reason will be–the great rush of passport applications.
