My child brought this news to my attention this evening. Mr Colbert had displayed a full page advertisement printed in yesterday's New York Times. Not only is THE BLACK CARD offered only to 1% of US residents, it is apparently only offered to US residents by the Barclays Bank N.A. affiliate. A cursory review of Barclays portals today makes not mention of this historic event.
