I don't have a driver's licence. I use a passport as my official
government ID. I don't have a debit or credit card either, don't
particularly want one, and am increasingly unhappy about the
transition to "cashless" transactions.
In my case I tend to use money orders, but if Glenn is setting a trend
of not accepting those either, then I am in trouble.
