And One Form of Entertainment Bites the Dust

President Obama has released his long-form birth certificate. It looks remarkably like the form that was used for my birth certificate by the State of Tennessee at about the same time, which is no great surprise. Forms like this tend to be remarkably standard.

Entertainingly, did you know that you cannot get a passport by presenting your long-form birth certificate? It isn't pretty and in color, which is apparently what the passport agency wants to see. Never mind that the pretty color certificate was issued many years after your birth, while the long-form birth certificate was a contemporaneous document to your birth...

We may now move onto other topics, such as how many politicians can dance on the head of a pin.
