    I'd go with quarters and dollar coins, eliminate the rest and split the rounding up and down so we come out even.
    Why is it so hard to actually make any change (sic) in this country? We truly live in a fog of exceptional nostalgia, caught in a trap of special interests, like other empires that have gone past their expiration date.

    I once asked a cashier if we should get rid of pennies - she said "Oh, no, I get all my clothes there". But maybe not anymore.
