    I really like the America The Beautiful design. There are enough scenic wonders to cover each denomination. That would naturally allow for differences in color (pink for cherry blossoms, terra cotta for the Grand Canyon, yellow for Yellowstone or some such), and there could be some difference in size to help the blind. But I hope they make the money ergonomic to wallets, seriously. Don't get too out of hand with the sizes.

    Those designs aren't all that impressive to me though.
    I'm totally in favor of different length bills for each denomination. I also liked the colors on the first set. If you're not color blind, it makes it easy and quick to tell which is which.

The eagle is a good standby, maybe do it by region like they did with quarters.
    I agree about putting national landmarks on instead of people. Of course even with that, you still won't be able to please everybody. For me, it doesn't really matter what pictures go on the bills. I just want to be able to quickly find what I need when paying.


    On a side note, how do you all feel about changing the U.S. coins? I think its kind of odd that the dime is smaller than the nickel, yet worth more. I think it would make more sense if larger size coins are worth more than smaller size ones. And I'm in favor of getting rid of the penny and just rounding all costs to the nearest $0.05 increments. It would save on all that pesky loose change.

    Or we could make small denominations like cents made out of paper and larger denominations into coins.

    Yes he would be even more controversial, and yet at the same time he still is more authentic in terms of the black experience in America. His family was descended form slaves and he grew up in a much tougher time, he didnt grow up with his White family in Hawaii the most diverse state in the nation... which is why I laugh when people call Barak (known as Barry before he decided he wanted to become political) the 1st Black president. But his authenticity is moot in that he inspires good in SOME ways and provides a role model to a lot of people who needed one badly.

    ORLY?

    You think it might be Walt Whitman? I don't think it quite looks like him but he's the only patriotic American dude I can think of with such an impressive beard.
