No, that headline is correct -- some crazed hacker has not taken over Coyote Blog. Having been relentlessly critical of government organizations in general and the DMV in particular, I think fairness demands I post exculpatory evidence when I have it.
This morning we thought my son lost his driver's license (later found). Dreading the all day trip to the DMV to get it replaced (and no, nothing has changed my opinion that that experience sucks), we checked online for the procedure. It turns out that we could have applied for a new license over the Internet, and, best of all, if we got the application in by 3:00 today we could have had the license in our hands by noon tomorrow, on a Saturday no less, via express delivery. That's better than my credit card company does.
Yes, such service is a virtual necessity given how central the government has made the driver's license in so many routine activities (except voting of course, that would be racist!). But it is still a breath of fresh air to see any state institution match their service to such necessities. Now, if we could only get the passport process sorted out, but that one is just getting worse.
