The mind is like a parachute. Dead weight unless one chooses to open it.
Check the maximum weight tolerance before jumping.

It is basically a Federal response to ID security after 9/11.
Enforcement has been delayed a couple of times to the current the Oct 2020 date.
Real ID enforcement has again been delayed by DHS (new date: October 1, 2021):
Haven't we been hearing this same song for the last fifteen years?
The latest delay is obviously about the current situation.
I need to transfer a title (for a recent auto purchase) and I was going to go ahead and update my NV DL while there. Of course the DMV is shuttered now (from NV DMV site):
-The Department does not anticipate reopening until April 16 at the earliest.-
I wonder what the DMV experience will be like when it reopens? :)

June 1972, Syracuse New York War Memorial Arena, local fighter (and former welterweight champ) Billy Backus squares off with Hedgemon Lewis. Longtime boxing pal Frankie La La and myself were huge Backus fans and would always hang out near the fighter's entry to see Billy Backus, his manager Tony Graziano, and his Uncle Carmine Basilio walk by on their way to the ring and to get a glove touch with Billy Backus. Standing there and leaning with his foot against the wall is this guy who immediately locks eyes with Frankie La La. Frankie says, "what you looking at pretty-boy" (yea - back in the day La La could be a real knucklehead at times). The guy then says, "put your money where your mouth is, $20 says Lewis beats Backus easy". Use of the word "easy" enrages La La and heated words are exchanged between him and the "pretty boy". Security guy says we have to leave the area. We head back to our seats and the ring announcer makes a few introductions prior to the bout. La La and I are amazed to see the "pretty boy" standing center ring. The pretty boy is introduced by the ring announcer as actor Ryan O'Neal and the crowd goes wild. Later on we find out that O'Neal (along with Bill Cosby and a few other Hollywood elites) were backers of Hedgemon Lewis. Lewis ended up beating Billy Backus that night to garner the New York State Athletic Commission Welterweight Title. In a rematch a few months later Lewis beat Backus a second time.
Hedgemon Lewis lost a tough and close decision in a world title bout with legendary Jose Napoles in 1971 - many thought it was a draw. Lewis faced Napoles again a few years later in a second title shot and was stopped by Napoles in the 9th round. Lewis had really tough fights with the likes of Percy Pugh, Adolph Pruitt, Ernie Lopez and Amando Muniz (to name just a few). Hedgemon Lewis was an exciting to watch top welterweight contender, top welter weight contender.
