Raging Right Wing Republican

I thought this was a joke

Then I learned that when a federal judge speaks, get ready for comedy!
WASHINGTON -- By keeping all U.S. currency the same size and texture, the government has denied blind people meaningful access to money, a federal judge said Tuesday. . . .

He said he wouldn't tell officials how to fix the problem, but he ordered them to begin working on it within 10 days. The American Council of the Blind has proposed several options, including printing bills of differing sizes, adding embossed dots or foil to the paper or using raised ink.
I mean, really. Give me a break. Somebody add this asshat to the list of judges to impeach in 2007.

Sounds like a case of good intentions meets practically unsolvable problem.

i see nothing wrong with this ruling. i'm sure blind people could use some more independence.

Canadian money (well, the new bills) has braille on it. i really don't see the issue here.
