Will James Altucher Soon Get Arrested?

James Altucher has a great column out that describes how he uses $2.00 bills. I have already linked to it. But will his $2.00 bill spending habits result in his getting arrested?


According to an account in the Baltimore Sun, Mike Bolesta was shocked to find himself, while attempting to make a payment with $2.00 bills at a Best Buy, taken to the Baltimore County lockup in Cockeysville, Md., where he was handcuffed to a pole, was put in leg chains and held for three hours while the U.S. Secret Service was called to verify that the $2.00 bills he was using were genuine currency.

Bizarre as that story is, check out how the local police justified the action:
Baltimore County police, said spokesman Bill Toohey, "It's a sign that we're all a little nervous in the post-9/11 world."
Got that? Spend some $2.00 bills and this is somehow connected to post-9/11 America? I would say the sheeple are just about all in line and ready to be marched.
