'Scuse the stupidity

So, I was informed on my last blog by my good buddy Sly Reference that the thing I was ranting about — the In God We Trust motto being eliminated from the George Washington dollar coin — is, in fact, FALSE.

Apparently, it’s just been moved to the side.

Well, color me stupid.

I mean, in hindsight, it seems so incredibly stupid — why did I get suckered in by a mass e-mail chock full of waving flag and bear graphics? Ack, can’t win them all, I guess.
