Earlier this week, I blogged about the ongoing $10 bill saga and what looked to be its conclusion — the Treasury would leave Alexander Hamilton alone, or at least on the $10 bill.

One of the most common questions I get when I give speeches about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has to do with its funding.
