I found this to be a fascinating - and alarming - little article. It seems the government is having a wee bit of a problem printing money. "Because of a problem with the presses, the federal government has shut down production of its flashy new $100 bills, and has quarantined more than 1 billion of them -- more than 10 percent of all existing U.S. cash -- in a vault in Fort Worth, Texas."
The frustration level, a source told the reporter, is "off the charts."
I can well imagine.
