They insisted that I remove my glasses
I recently went in to renew my driver's license. Once again, the no-glasses rule was applied. This time, a photo of a villain from one of the Ghostbusters films emerged.
It will be interesting to see how this works out in the field. In the old days of IRA bombings in London, whenever I went to Britain I was invariably and politely taken aside for questioning; an interruption which amused friends and family. Now that I have a passport photo which could be reasonably described as menacing, the old days may be revived.
