IHOP changes policy of asking for IDs

"QUINCY, Mass. - John Russo has been a victim of identity theft. So when he was asked to fork over a photo ID just to be seated at an IHOP pancake restaurant, he flipped. "'You want my license? I'm going for pancakes, I'm not buying the Hope diamond,' and they refused to seat us," Russo said, recounting his experience this week at the Quincy IHOP."

I'd like to see an interview with the employee who decided this would be a good idea. They probably thought they were going to be commended for taking initiative. Sheesh.
