US passport supremacy might be over

Telling Americans they can’t travel to Europe this summer is like telling a high school kid he can’t buy a ticket to prom because he flunked health science. Americans don’t take “no” very well. And why should they? The US passport grants access to 184 of the world’s 195 countries, and Americans have grown pretty comfortable viewing the world like a neighbor’s yard with no fence and no trespassing laws. Thanks to the US’s poor response to the pandemic, however, that reality is about to change....

Britons disappointed by post-Brexit passports not actually being blue

Britons were told that leaving the European Union would allow them to go back to using traditional "blue" passports instead of the supposedly EU-mandated brown ones. One of the stranger lies of Brexit (the EU "harmonized" passport designs but Britain could have had blue ones if it wanted) it's now falling in on itself, because the new passports are actually black.
