2013

I've always found the green a bit drab

"The federal government will unveil a new $20 bill that will introduce a predominant but subtle color into the background, marking the first time in modern history that a U.S. bill will feature a color other than green.

According to the Treasury Department, other changes will include new images of Andrew Jackson and the White House, as well as other adjustments that are being kept secret. The official unveiling will take place on March 27, with the new bill entering circulation in the fall." - from CNN Money


As long as the new bills don't look like Monopoly money, it's fine by me.

hopefully Blair heeds

"Tony Blair last night faced fresh pressure to abandon the threat of war against Iraq when 16 eminent academic lawyers warned him that the White House doctrine of 'pre-emptive self-defence' has no justification under international law.

Not only do all the UN security council's existing resolutions on Iraq - including 1441 passed unanimously in November to enforce disarmament on Saddam Hussein - fail to provide such authority, there are currently no grounds for passing a new one to give the 'clearly expressed assent' to a war that Mr Blair still seeks, the lawyers declare." - from The Guardian
