YNET: Shekel bills depicting poetesses to enter circulation
New bills bearing likeness of Leah Goldberg on NIS 100 bill and Rachel the Poetess on NIS 20 bill to enter circulation after adjustment and calibration period for banks, businesses concludes; experts say bills would likely be last issued by government before total switch to digital currencies, credit cards.
Gad Lior: 13.10.17
Two new shekel bills in the Bank of Israel's poets' series will be entering circulation in the coming weeks, depicting poetesses Rachel (Bluwstein) and Leah Goldberg.
The new bills will be in denominations of NIS 20 (Rachel) and NIS 100 (Goldberg), joining the two bills from the series already on the market: a NIS 50 bill issued in September 2014 featuring Shaul Tchernichovsky and an NIS 200 bill issued in December 2015 featuring Nathan Alterman.
(blah, blah, blah...)
Economic officials have estimated this would be the last series of paper bills issued in Israel, as paper money is only changed once every few decades, as has been the case in this instance, and in 10-20 years payments are more likely to be made using smart phones, computers and credit cards, all but nullifying the need for cash.

So, was I the only one who noticed that a mainstream news source actually reported what only a few of us have been thinking?
Does anyone even care about the impending doom of cash? Or that these notes aren't even worth the plastic they are made out of?
Nope. Probably not.
You all just think about the wonderful "convenience" of the technological advances that the powers that be are providing you, right?
