  1. US Paper Currency + The Blind = Discrimination

    Many foreign countries you travel to have paper currency in a multitude of sizes and colors. While the US Treasury has been peppering our bills with color in recent years they have ignored the benefits of size. Different sizes for different denominations helps you find the right bills. Whether you have the gift of sight or not.

    Finally it looks like the courts are going to fix that. The American Council of the Blind has been fighting in court to force a redesign of paper currency. It’s about time.

      I’ve been saying this for years. It aggrivates me that they spent time coming up with new currency designs but didn’t bother with changing any sizes.
