Nominated Treasury Secretary Jack Lew took some heat yesterday for his loopy, illegible signature. Let me explain something. Nobody’s signature makes any sense. Signatures are stylistic logos. If you’re over the age of 15 or so people will think less of you if your signature is halfway readable. I worked on mine when I was in the eighth grade. I experimented and practiced until I got it right, you bet.

Jack Lew’s signature.

My signature.
