Dollar Signs, by George Zachar

November 22, 2006 |

I was eyeballing a Daily Mail article on the Paul McCartney divorce, and came upon this passage:

I remember him saying that all she thought about was money and that she had asked for £80million. He said something like, ‘She is going to take me for £80million, because we now know it’s for £80million. All she thinks about is dollars’. He even drew dollar signs to emphasise it.

What struck me was how a UK subject would talk about money and specific amounts denominated in pounds sterling, but when it came to symbolize the wealth, he spoke of dollars, even drawing $ signs.

Something to contemplate amid the unending litany of dollar doom stories.
