You are welcome, Joey!
And your posts have not been poorly worded. You write very well.

In this latest post you have captured the essence of the issue: the idea that US residents did not need passports for Canada and Mexico before ... and they do not understand why they will need one in the future.

I am thinking of the little old lady in Toledo who enjoys traveling to Windsor to visit the casinos, or the 20-somethings in San Diego who like crossing the border for the beaches or the nightlife in Rosarito.
Suddenly they need a passport to travel where they've gone so many times without one.

You also make a valid point in that the government has not done a good job in educating citizens on the new passport requirements, then compounded this by not sticking to the deadline.
