"Jackson gets Boot..Black Lady gets In!"
There consideration among the Feds to change the image on our $20 Dollar Bill. Andrew Jackson has had the chair for maybe 60 years or so time for a change.
Currently Harriet Tubman is in the lead. I wanted Walt Whitman or maybe Allen Ginsberg. However it's time a woman got the chair. So Harriet Tubman abolitionist, and leader of the Underground Railroad which led slaves to freedom in the North is the likely candidate.
I hope they use something like the image above. Harriet with her famous Navy Colt at the ready to keep runaway Slaves safe!
They'll probably use a "safe" image like the above knowing them wonks as we do. Anyway it's still a kind of progress..sort of like Obama getting elected. That's how it is in this country.
Slow painfully slow compromised half hearted small changes. This is why things that should happen at once take 50 or 60 years. Compromise, and slow change is why our system doesn't fall into another Civil War or Revolution.
Actually I have to agree...I don't like it one bit, but yeah it seems to work in a way.
