money.jpg I’m not sure how to feel about this. On one hand, I hate to see anyone have a hard time and potentially get ripped off. But if we have to change all of the money in circulation, it will cost the taxpayers billions of dollars. It’s just a bad spot to be in 😦

WASHINGTON — American paper money represents an unfair impediment to the blind, and the Treasury Department must come up with new U.S. currency to help the visually impaired use cash, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.

U.S. District Judge James Robertson said keeping all U.S. currency the same size and texture violates the Rehabilitation Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in government programs.

“Of the more than 180 countries that issue paper currency, only the United States prints bills that are identical in size and color in all their denominations,” Robertson wrote in his ruling. “More than 100 of the other issuers vary their bills in size according to denomination, and every other issuer includes at least some features that help the visually impaired.”

Sad news from the Wiggles and Wiggles Central.

Greg Page (the yellow one) is leaving the group due to a “serious illness”. He’s been absent from the tours for quite a while, and, the message boards have been put on hold until further notice. What is actually wrong with him has been a closely guarded secret, but, it doesn’t sound good.

knives.JPG  So a friend sends me this eBay link and says “check out this bullsh@#”  And indeed it is.  Here is the link……… http://cgi.ebay.com/10-Pounds-NTSA-Airport-Confiscated.  Oh yes you see it right.  It seems there a slew of TSA employees selling confiscated goods on eBay.  Just do a search it’s very easy to find lots of examples.  They are selling by the pound even!  So all that stuff that was taken away the last time you flew out of an airport has wound up on eBay.

You would think this is illegal, but apparently it’s OK.  For shame!  Well, karma comes around buddy, enjoy your ill gotten gains while you can…….
