The Blind Lead the Rest

This article made me laugh a lot.  It's high time we stopped clinging to our traditionally identical sized bills.  It'll help sighted people too and make washing the ink off bills and reprinting them in a higher denomination less easy to pass off.  Less easy instead of impossible because sometimes people just don't pay attention.  And with different sized bills, you can fan out a fat stack and know that they're all the same much quicker.  There is no disadvantage.  The real waste of money is the fact that the treasury's opposing this.
