Don’t Inflate One for the Gipper


A Republican congressman from North Carolina has proposed legislation that would replace the image of President Ulysses S. Grant on the fifty dollar bill with that of President Ronald Reagan.

Come on. If you’re going to put the Gipper’s face on something, it shouldn’t be something that’s rapidly declining in value.
