Cold Hard Tract

Anybody have one of these in their wallet? If so, ever tried to spend it, or deposit it in your bank? I didn't think so. Well, evidently somebody in North Carolina has. The back of the bill (the front of which includes a "not legal tender" disclaimer) asks a "million-dollar question" concerning eternity and salvation through Jesus Christ. Upon learning of the attempted deposit, the Secret Service turned their attention to the group responsible for producing the tracts, threatening to arrest a staffer for "hiding evidence in a counterfeiting investigation." (Story here.) Our tax dollars hard at work - thanks, Uncle Sam.
