Wry & Dry

Show me the money...

W&D, a keen user of the folding stuff, observes that the Reserve Bank is introducing a renovated five dollar note. The ongoing use of ecclesiastical purple is no surprise, being a garish enough colour to distinguish it from its other notes without an imperial equivalent ($100 and $50).

But W&D is amazed at an outpouring of venom that is usually reserved for the Australian Olympic Team uniform.  Which perhaps says more about what the person-in-the-street is really worried about and less about the bank note itself.
