GRASSROOTS RESISTANCE: Reader Norv Clontz writes: “In change today I got a single that was signed by Tim Geithner. I hadn’t noticed one in circulation before. Someone already wrote on it in red ink, ‘TAX CHEAT’.” Yeah, I haven’t noticed one of those yet. I guess I’ll start looking. Or maybe I’ll just look for the “TAX CHEAT” commentary. That guy is still selling the Tax Cheat Stamps. I guess the audit didn’t scare him away. . . .

UPDATE: I think the idea started here.

ANOTHER UPDATE: A reader emails: “Hi Glenn. I loved seeing this post. We bought the ‘tax cheat’ stamp a long time ago and it languished on the shelf. Finally, a few months ago, those Tim Geithner one dollar bills started appearing in our change. EVERY ONE that passes through this house gets stamped. I’m glad the stamps are getting noticed. Let a million red stamps bloom!”

MORE: Another reader emails:

I’ve been looking forward to my first Geithner Federal Reserve note for the more than two years since the very second I read about the “Tax Cheat” stamp idea.

I had checked regularly and had never seen one here in California’s Central Valley – until I read today’s post on Instapundit.

I checked my wallet, and to my delight, there were five not-yet-marked Geithner one dollar notes.

Five new ones. A straight. All five in numerical sequence.

Wham, wham, wham, wham, wham.

I’m going to have to start looking at dollar bills.
