In the Corner with Dan Hughes
199-160421 In the Treasure Corner - Adios Andrew, Howdy Harriet

First, the powers-that-be decided it was past time to get a woman on our currency.

Their initial thought - Sacajawea on the ten-dollar bill.

But the public didn't want Sacajawea, they wanted Harriet Tubman.  

Okay, done.

And they didn't want to lose Alexander Hamilton on the ten, mainly because he was suddenly in the public spotlight, thanks to a bizarre Broadway hit musical where our Founding Fathers sing his praise.  In rap and hip-hop, with lots of crazy dancing.  Like 1776 on steroids.

Hey, whatever works.  

So now it's Harriet Tubman on the twenty.  Here's the story.


And speaking of money, if you don't know what to do with your tax return money, you should at least buy a copy of The Metal Detecting Manual

  • The politics of all this really cracks me up. I'm all for changes like this, and honestly have no idea why it's going to take so long? Bring 'em on....variety is the spice of life.
