The State Department Loves Me
Speaking of quick turnarounds, this past Friday I got my new passport in the mail. You've heard all the stories about how there was a big backlog of passports, right? Well, now they're working hard on eliminating the backlog, and I believe them, because I had just sent in my application Wednesday of the previous week! That was just nine days before, and I didn't pay extra to have the processing expedited or anything.
