No, Penny, No!

What is the Mint's obsession with switching up our currency? Seems every time you get a ten, it looks different. They may be trying to dissuade counterfeiters but I think they're doing them a favor because if someone gave me a twenty with Mickey Mouse on it I'd probably accept it. Now they have to re-design the penny? Hasn't it been shown that it costs more than a penny to make a penny? For a list of reasons the get rid of the penny you can go to Citizens For Retiring The Penny web site. The spinning penny with the caption "Isn't it annoying?" is the best part of the site.
