It looks like paper money in the U.S. may be changing color, size, and texture in an attempt to make it more accessible to the blind and visually impaired. This move is really a long time coming and not just because all that green gets boring. With the surge in touch-screen technology, the blind have been really left out of the loop.

Yeah, panda, that's exactly the kind of thing that it is proposing. Except with other changes such as color, so a visually impaired person can tell what a bill is without holding it in his hand.

This is not the sort of goodbye to greenbacks I was hoping for.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

I personally liked the scene in Ray where it showed that Ray Charles used to demand being paid in singles (however long the counting process might take) so that he could be sure he wasn't getting duped out of any earned wages. Clever. Though of course they could have been handing him fake money, presumably, but nevertheless...
