    Living in a state with no sales tax, my hatred of the penny has grown exponentially. Since everything still costs x.99, that means that there are always – and often only – pennies left over. An extra penny for everything you’re purchasing. At least with sales tax you get a wide mix of leftovers. No sales tax, little variety. The result is that the take-a-penny-leave-a-penny is overflowing at most convenience stores.

    Down with the penny!

    I am not certain that we should not do away with all coinage but the quarter, though increments of 10 may be easier than increments of four.Report
