This blog post hating on Jack Lew’s signature inspired me to quickly step out of the closet to say that I like loopy signatures. And unlike the author and most commentors on that post, I hope that if Jack is signed in as the new Secretary or the Treasury, I hope he doesn’t “upgrade his penmanship”. After all, doesn’t a signature simply need to be identifiable to a person? His broken-Slinky-looking scrawl is quite unique.

All of this wackiness is explained… it’s all has a point.
