platinum baby, platinum

while the house of representative pisses away the remaining hours before a national default by naming post offices, the platinum option idea continues to quietly spread through the blogosphere.

i've yet to see any mainstream media news source pick up on it yet. until they do, it probably won't happen. it also occurs to me that designing and minting some coins, even just two or three, would take some time. i don't know what that amount of time is. but i would think that whatever that may be, it's probably more than three business days. so maybe the platinum ship has already sailed.
