Give a Penny, Abolish a Penny

Safire takes a break from the heavy stuff this morning to share his views on abolishing the American penny.

No complaints here, except that it would be one less thing for me to collect, sort, and save in a clear jar until it's full...just to redeem the 1,000lb jug for $20. Perhaps, after their abolition, all pennies should be donated to a certain man who loves soldering or simply to Rice, whereupon they can make millions of penny condiment containers and give them out for free to patrons.

Here here.

Related: I was once told a poo story involving a penny and the Ziskind House third floor bathroom at Smith College. The story might take some crafting (and sanitizing), so I'll save it for a rainy day.

i agree. rice should give those cool things out to patrons, so i can stop losing valuable sleep over not having that cool penny art.
