Speaking of bleak headlines, as Alan Greenblatt did here, how about this one: "Obama Administration to Inherit a real mess on Real ID," from a Computerworld article.

Real mess for the administration? How about the states?  They're the ones that get stuck with carrying out the new vehicle licensing program that requires stringent national identification standards.

In any case, now we have to take into account the fact that Obama's choice to head the Department of Homeland Security - which is responsible for implementing Read ID rules - signed a bill barring her state from participating in the program.

This could get interesting.
