I think that's the whole idea.  Some folks are embarrassed by our "plain green" money and think we should do like other countries where each denomination is a different size and a different color.  Personally, I don't see the point.  Most people use plastic to pay for everything, so why mess with the design?  I do understand the problem with counterfeiting, though....

I'm in favor of it.

The reason for a differenct size for each denomination is to help the blind pay and count their money.

The North Koreans counterfeit US bills. Also possibly Iran. Why not make it harder?

Sorry Silvercreek...but thats bullshit! Every blind person I've encountered could easily distinguish between the bills....They can feel the print on them the same way they read brail....I used to work in vending way back...and the canteen at the IRS building in Covington Ky. is run entirely by the blind....and those folks could tell you a one from a five from a ten without ever missing a beat! And several IRS employees have been fired for trying to pass a one for a five....I know this for a fact.

Diaz...monopoly donkey....now thats funny!  ;D

Mr Obama was thinking about having his image placed there but then decided more folks who voteded for him would see him if he was on the Food Coupon >:D

Z-Man

Local tv station promo'd a story that a former president was getting a face lift.  Then they showed the Ben Franklin photo on the 100 dollar bill.  Educated idiots!
