I just read an article in the L.A. Times reminding me that if you are going to Canada or Mexico by air, you need a passport now. And what's more - new passports, even renewals are now taking 4 months plus to go through! I've let mine lapse, ugh - so it's another thing to do. So if you plan to do any traveling, get your passport in order NOW to avoid having to pay extra for getting your paperwork expedited.

Editor's Note: As of June 8, 2007, travelers who are waiting for a passport but haven't received it yet can travel with a government issued photo ID and proof of application. This will be good through September 30, 2007.
Also you can still renew your old passport (if you got your passport within 15 years ago while over age 16 when it was issued and still have the same name), you can still get it replaced rather than going through the whole application process again.
