Photo ID required to eat pancakes

An IHOP restaurant in Massachusetts required a photo ID before it would seat hungry people — until an outcry caused it to change that policy.

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.
