Just a Little Piece of Paper, Coated with Chlorophyll

3 Feb

I just learned that the very first paper money in the entire Western world was created on this date, back in 1690 in the colony of Massachusetts.

Little did this doctored 20 shilling note realize when it made its appearance that it would alter all future history.

Out of all the songs about money, the only one that deserves the honor to be the song for February 3rd is Ray Charles’ “Greenbacks.”  Once you download here, I’m banking on your agreement.  Ba-dum-dum.
