Absolutely hideous.

Your passports look like a children's colouring book, not an official document.

You just wish the Canadians had better looking passport instead of boring white papers.

For the heck of it and to beat what I correctly guessed would be the rush, I got my old-school US passport nearly two years ago. Its visa pages are a bunch of state -- that's US state, as in the 50 states -- seals. Kind of boring. No wonder I never really looked that closely at them before.

And no little RFID tag on the front!

WTF, I think this country has some better graphic designers out there. Damn, and I have to renew mine soon.

I suppose this wouldn't be the sort of thing to write Congress about, but it's tempting: "Dear Senator Kennedy, I didn't vote for you in your umpteenth election last fall, but I'd love it if you could tell the government that their brilliant new passport design is an international embarassment, oh and RFID chips work great for the subway...not in dealing with sensitive data, k thx bye."

I was in the post office yesterday and saw a mommy showing her two young children how pretty her new passport was; the kids were "ohhing" and "Awwing" over the design...kids don't think its bad, neither do I but I confess, I can't wait to hear the customs officers mumbling about it!

I've seen worse designs on the new quarters and nickels...

I used to love those states...you could search for what page yours was on.
