Regarding the USA Passport application issue, see my letter (attached) that I sent with my application in January 2004. After nearly a month, they responded with a supplemental request for three documents that were more than 5 years old. They issued the passport within a week of that submission.

Since the original posting of 'Your Papers, Please', many CtC Warriors have come forward to share stories of successfully upholding the law in the face of this scam.
