From boarding an airplane to buying booze to cashing a check, getting out a photo ID merits hardly a shrug among the assaults of modern life. But not so when it comes to voting.

Cards issued by the Mexican government will be accepted as a proper form of identification during police stops, Orange County law enforcement leaders announced Friday. The Orange County Assn. of Police Chiefs agreed to accept the cards as a form of identification after meeting with Mexican Consulate officials last month. Until now, police departments differed on what types of identification are valid. Friday's decision creates a uniform policy countywide.

Orange County's decision earlier this month to begin accepting Mexican consular cards as identification is attracting mounting opposition from groups that seek to limit immigration.

Whale researchers, countering a tide of skepticism, have found ways to use photographs to identify and track the world's most mysterious mammals individually and over decades. Placed in burgeoning whale "photo albums," the pictures are providing answers to questions about whale biology that in many cases could never be answered before. Births, deaths, social groupings and migration patterns are showing up in the thousands of photos that telephoto lenses snap every year.

Imagine placing your hand on a scanner or speaking into a computer to speed your way across the border. Beam me across, Scotty. Immigration officials are experimenting with biometrics and other identification systems--the stuff you read about in sci-fi books--to cut traffic delays and free up inspectors to focus on illegal immigrants and smugglers.

Four-year-old Andrew Hitchings says he wants to be a crocodile. And eat tuna fish in the bathtub. "He's into reptiles," says his mother, Mary Hitchings. Linda Ford, a herpetologist--that's someone who studies amphibians and reptiles--nods and opens the white croc jawbone one more time for Andrew. She sits behind a table resplendent with a coiled boa skeleton, snakeskins and salamanders. Nearby, what seems to be the largest, hairiest spider in the world is taken out of a cage.

Secretary of State Bill Jones is asking voters statewide to send him their driver's license numbers as part of a program to attach a number to each registered voter. The request is being made in voter guides mailed this week to the state's 14.5 million voters. The program is designed to eliminate duplicate registrations that occur mainly when people relocate and reregister, said spokesman Alfie Charles.
