Wherein I Am Glad We Have a Consumer Financial Services Protection Bureau
January 30, 2012 You Can't Have it Both Ways

To make sure we don’t get billed for late fees without being notified that something is going to be late, right?

Yet why should there have to be a next time? Why should keeping an ordinary driver’s license up to date oblige anyone to deal with a government agency, in person or online? I hadn’t even realized that my license was about to expire until an airport security agent pointed it out to me the last time I flew out of Logan. The Registry no longer sends renewal notices; and woe betide the motorist who gets pulled over with an expired license, an infraction that can trigger a fine of up to $1,000, not to mention a potential arrest.

Hey Nudgers, where are you?

  1. Let me guess. Barney Frank was flying commercial out of Logan on the Shuttle.

  2. If you are an unliscenced barber plying your trade in Philadelphia in a truck, maybe you would get ten years to life if you park your van in front of City Hall. Unless you are an Occupier.
