We were very pleased - heck, thrilled - to get that e-mail from the US Embassy in Delhi India telling us they were in possession of Kathy's stolen driver's license and "two other cards." She e-mailed back to inquire about having them mailed and received a reply overnight:
We have sent your license and other cards by diplomatic pouch and you should receive them in 2-3 weeks.

Via diplomatic pouch! This is one occasion that we can offer a wholehearted thanks to "the government," and certainly its employees. We'll add to that "our tax dollars at work" without a hint of sarcasm for once.
