Apparently, they're redesigning the paper money again, which should provide some headaches for one of my tricks, Bill in Lemon. On AOL, there's an article that read, in part:
WASHINGTON (May 13) - America's paper money - the venerable greenback - is no longer going to appear all green. Bills aren't about to turn psychedelic, but they are getting a tad more colorful, part of a broader effort to thwart sophisticated counterfeiters....
First in line for the government's money makeover is the $20 bill....most noticeable change in the bill is that it has more color. The new $20 has a subtle green, peach and blue color featured in the now neutral-colored background.
The article said the money will probably be introduced in the fall. Ugh. There will be a transition period to the new bill, as there was with the last bill, when you have to specify which bill you want to use.
I pre-load my bills into the lemon, see. I guess that's an argument for loading the bill during the performance, isn't it?
