Why? Might you ask..Well, one simple answer really: George W. Bush.
Call me paranoid, but when I travel outside of the US these days, and have that *very noticeable* US Passport in my hands as ID, I can't help but feel like a moving target. A moving target for folks who believe that all US Citizens support Bush-though the reality is more like this-if we're a US Citizen travelling outside of the US, we're less likely to support Bush.
So, until what's his name is out of office next year, I will happily tote my US passport around in my snazzy new Lodis Passport Holder.
