If you’re a resident of one of at least 24 states including Arizona, Georgia, and Washington, your driver’s license may no longer be valid for boarding an airplane or entering federal buildings as of May 11, 2011.

Here. Sure sounds like a national ID card to me. No thanks.  The last thing government needs is another database to track the citizenry. That information will be a treasure-trove for all kinds of political mischief.
