Often I’ve heard “blogs” and “meta-commentary” in the same breath. I have to find some real references on this. In the meantime, I wanted to just point out that they aren’t exclusive to each other.

Trafficking advertisements on legal tender

I heard on MPR’s MarketPlace this Thursday that the USA Network has been promoting the new “Traffic” series by re-introducing into circulation 50,000 dollar bills with a promotional sticker on them.

I suppose that the removeable stickers are not permanently defacing the bills.
