We Need to Talk

Here, chosen purely at random, is a sporting attempt to explain the complexity of crossing into the US with an adopted child.  Not only is it written in English by way of Babelfish,

but a lot of it is simply wrong.

And here is an attempt to make sense out of US passports for children.

If a cheery, ambitious, articulate entry-level officer were assigned to skim local or suspect web sites and correct, respond to, or comment on such attempts to clarify people's situations, he or she would not only provide a valuable public service, but would also give a supervisor a very nice item or two to include in the next EER.

But of course, we don't do our jobs for rewards, do we.  We do them because they are our jobs and we love them.
