I'm 62. Since I was old enough to have ID, it is only with me when I carry my purse. I often take a walk without it, sticking my keys in a pocket or in the burbs, leaving the back door unlocked. I don;t bother about the ID--why should I? I'm not expecting to get jumped or be questioned by the police.

For the same reason your mom told you to wear clean underwear... you could end up dead in a ditch and evoke a Jane Doe in the morgue for a week. With dirty underwear.

I'm serious about the ID thing and the morgue though. As this case shows it happens. I don't go outside to take out the garbage without my license on me. It's just common sense. I dunno, maybe some people were raised by wolves or something!
