    I recently lost (as in misplaced) my driver's license and went in for a
    replacement. While I was at it, I also got a state ID card. After getting a
    number for that interminable wait, I got a new sticker for my plates (which
    only took a few minutes). The problem with getting an ID is that you have
    to already have an ID to get it (further complicated by Homeland Security
    regulations), but they finally did the necessary paperwork, sent me to the
    cashier (total $9 for both items, which I thought was remarkable), had me
    fill out a signature card, and sent me to the photo counter. The new DL
    came out with my previous picture on it (from their computer file) and the
    ID with the new picture. Total time: maybe an hour and a half. When the
    license expires (unless things have changed), I can just send in my $10 (or
    do it online for an extra service fee (could also do that for the plate
    sticker)) and they will send me a sticker with a new expiration date to put
    on my license.

    Just think how efficient it could be if the secretary of state got along
    with the governor...
