Funny Money
Slate has an interesting take on the 50 US States' quarters. Personally, I think NH's is the best. It makes sense. Louisiana's quarter is foolish, and Ohio's makes no sense whatsoever because most people do not associate the Wright Brothers with the Buckeye State. Furthermore, that image of an astronaut (John Glenn I presume) looks more like a mummy. Why didn't they put up a picture of derelict industry or perhaps a scene of Cleveland's legendary polluted Cuyahoga River catching on fire? Such a wasted opportunity.....
