I haven't posted in a while

There are a few things I'd like to put up. First of all, and most importantly, take note of this article.

"I'm sure it's really stressful hanging from under a helicopter, but they're handling it really well," Dr. Lisa Wolfe with the Colorado Division of Wildlife said.

On a completely different note, the Globe featured an article about the arrest of RMV employees for allegedly helping make extra identification cards that matched other cards except with different names.

Crackdowns on how ID papers are made have effects not only on other employees at RMVs and DMVs nationwide, but also on immigrants and trans people who are constantly put in situations where they need to show more and more proof of who they are and why they need identification.

Does anyone know of any good print/Web resources for trans travelers (re: specific concerns around documentation)?

I know that NCTE put one out about air travel that was pretty good (National Center for Transgender Equality). I found a link to one of theirs through google but I didn't check if it was their newest one. Here it is.
