AKRON, OH—Michael Stills, 25, told reporters Friday he had absolutely no idea how to obtain a copy of his birth certificate, a document that a potential employer has required him to provide before interviewing for a job. "I tried to get it online, but you can't," said Stills, who added that his mother refused to mail him her copy for fear it might get lost. "I called Akron General, but I didn't know which department to ask for, and I'm not actually sure that's the right hospital. Maybe the courthouse would have it?" As of press time, Stills said he had made no progress tracking down the document but had inadvertently applied for a commercial trucker's license while searching for information on the DMV website.
