"If a driver's license were what the term implies -- proof that you have shown you're competent to operate a vehicle, based on successful completion of an at-least slightly demanding driver's test in an actual car on actual roads -- then, okay. Maybe. At least then, the bearer could take some pride in the same way that a college graduate or a person who holds a sharpshooter's certificate can take pride in a real achievement. But the 'driver's' licenses almost all of us carry today are nothing more than the equivalent of the yellow tags you see stapled into the left ears of cows. And serve the same purpose." (01/11/11)
