Jack Lew's Signature

Projecting ahead to him assuming the job, NY Mag Intelligencer created this version of what Treasury secretary-nominee Jack Lew’s weird signature would look like on a dollar bill. For my part, I was wondering why their post, and the graphic was getting so much attention on the nets. Besides the opportunity to indulge in some amateur handwriting analysis, perhaps the hook has to do with the lack of transparency when it comes to the government and our money. And also the fact we want to feel like the people in charge of our cash are actually recognizable — and not loopy.
