Have you heard they might get rid of the penny?
I guess it takes .014 cents to make one penny. That's 40 percent more than the penny is worth. So it's not very profitable to make them. And that's money better spent on something more important, like our growing national deficit, I guess. So, thus the consideration.
Poor old Abe.
Kirk and I decided that at least one group of professionals would suffer from this move: chiropractors. With that many less people bending over to pick up pennies on the sidewalk, that's a whole bunch of people no longer in need of back care.
Poor old chiropractors.
