Bringing the aesthetic delights of the 1040-EZ to every cash transaction: some design firm has really ugly ideas for our money. And I'm using ugly in its most literal sense. Not even going to touch the implicit politics here. If we want to revamp our already rather unattractive cash, what's wrong with old-fashioned engravings of picturesque minorities and alpine scenery?

I'd like to think so!

I haven't been able to load it again since yesterday morning. Maybe it went viral and caused some combination of shame and technical issues.

"Some combination of shame and technical issues."

As brought down the U.S.S.R.

Alas, they know no shame. The site is on; I had a look.
You are right: it's ugly.

And not only aesthetically.
