I have seen the future. In the Delta terminal at LaGuardia airport, there is a restaurant-bar that does not accept U.S. currency. (Woman: No cash. Credit cards only.) (Man: What about people with bad credit?) (Woman: I dunno.) Remember how Edward Snowden got stuck in Russia? While he was changing planes, the US State Department invalidated his passport electronically, remotely. (Passport is yet, Mr. Snowden) In the coming cashless society, governments will be able to turn people who annoy them into paupers with the flip of a switch. (Man: That's impossible- try this card instead) Or maybe that's just paranoia. (Man: Shall I blast him with our newest self guided killer robot plane? (Man: Do we ever say no?)
