Mixed messages to the blind

Here’s an interesting juxtaposition of news relating to our nation’s money and the blind.

First, in July 2006, Congress authorized the U.S. Mint to produce a silver dollar commemorating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Louis Braille, creator of the alphabet for the blind.

Then, in December 2006 a judge ruled that, “American money represents an unfair impediment to the blind, and the Treasury Department must come up with new currency to help the visually impaired use cash.”
