Passport Update

I got my previous passport in the mail today with two holes punched in the front cover, so that made me feel better to get it back. Why aren't more of you upset about the computer chip in the new passports? I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but that's scary in terms of identity theft and being tracked and who knows what else!

The chip is used for a scanning device as you enter and leave the country- it's kind of like a bar code. It's not a radio frequency trnasmitter that can be tracked. Personally, I am glad that the borders are well ocntrolled.

I am all of that, but didn't have my tinfoil hat on earlier. Of course, a lot of credit cards (those ones where you can tap and pay) already have those chips in them, so you may already be being tracked...

OK, thanks! Y'all made me feel better.
