The Loonie Leads

The Canadian dollar (a.k.a. the Loonie) closed the trading session on Friday worth 1.0052 of a U.S. dollar (a.k.a. the Greenback). Now, according to satirist Stephen Colbert this is a terrible thing. It says that a loon has more significance on the world stage than the very famous first president George Washington.


(note: for any non-NorthAmericans who miss the point; Canada has a $1 coin that features a loon and the United States has a $1 paper bill featuring George Washington)
