    Federal appeals court says paper money discriminates against blind people

    http://www.startribune.com/business/19097584.html?location_refer=Homepage

    WASHINGTON - The U.S. discriminates against blind people by printing paper money that makes it impossible for them to distinguish among the bills' varying values, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.

    I've never really thought about it but money must be a pain in the ass for the blind.

    Since an "ingot" of gold is a form of currency, does this now mean that it is more of a "bingot" now?

    Many other countries have bills that vary in size. We could do the same!

    I saw the new bills from Canada for the first time this year on a college trip, cool stuff.
    Although one of my friends in the group said very loudly in the middle of a hotel lobby, "look, monopoly money."
    Thankfully Canadians are stereotypically friendly.
    ;D
