Florida's greatest columnist has hit on a brilliant idea:
More examples of proof-of-identity madness keep dropping into my inbox.
It's not just fireworks, tobacco and booze, either. A number of you have told me you've been asked to prove your age before being allowed to buy the Daily Mail.
One reader even sent me his till receipt, which read: 'Cashier confirmed purchaser was over 16.' The justification is, apparently, that you have to be over 16 to buy a paper containing a free DVD. But the last time I looked, we were giving away classic movies such as Wuthering Heights and Bleak House - not Driller Killer or Debbie Does Dallas.
Do you think there's something more sinister going on here? How long before the Government insists you can only buy the Tuesday and Friday editions of the Mail in a plain brown envelope?
