Passport Day: March 27

Passport Day may not be high on your list of non-traditional holidays to celebrate, so maybe use it as another marker. The U.S. State Department has proposed fee increases for new or renewed passports and passport cards. The cost will jump from $100 to $135 for new passports and $10 for passport cards. Though this could happen before Passport Day, early April is the State Department's target date for the new fees.

So what does this have to do with natural history writing? Not much other than some higher costs to traveling. But on just the writing front, I've finished a couple of on-line articles about the topic so it is fresh in my skull. That and I love these weird holidays...
