Lew’s official signature a vast improvement

Looks like Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has been working on his penmanship.

The Treasury Department on Tuesday tweeted an image of Lew’s signature as it will appear on U.S. currency beginning this fall. And it’s a vast improvement over his original, oddly loopy signature that garnered much mocking (including by the Loop, which enlisted a handwriting expert to plumb its deeper meanings).

Even President Obama joked that he’d given Lew the job on the condition that he work on the old John Hancock. The new, improved version features the distinct capitol letters “J” and “L,” and is overall, relatively legible.

Looks like Lew deserves a (very well-formed) “A” for effort.
