Loopy Lew

This is what our money may soon look like:
Jack Lew’s signature is throwing people, including President Barack Obama, for a loop.

The president’s candidate for U.S. Treasury secretary signs his name with a swirl of loops resembling a runaway logo for the Olympic games more than any traditional John Hancock.

Departing Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner had a similar problem and has worked at making his handwriting more legible. ...

“I had never noticed Jack’s signature,” Obama said, “and when this was highlighted yesterday in the press, I considered rescinding my offer to appoint him.”

Pausing for laughter in the East Room, the president added: “Jack assures me that he is going to work to make at least one letter legible in order not to debase our currency, should he be confirmed as secretary of the Treasury.”
