Letter: Passports


We keep reading about having “current passports”. Could you please explain the ‘necessity’ for this? Where might we go? What might it be needed for? Be well! – RM

HJL Replies: It can be summed up in one of the survivalist’s creeds (actually, I first heard this from a skydiver): It is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. If you don’t have a passport, you have effectively removed the legal means to travel to many foreign countries for a variety of reasons.
