Before we go trotting off in search of apple pie, a few thoughts on the country’s most valuable redesign project of late: US currency.

-Our new pastel money is not only pretty, but has built-in security features, as showcased in this interactive Flash movie from the US Bureau of Engraving.

-Don’t worry, a new $5 is on the way.

-Although the existing $20 bill may be in need of a re-redesign. (Great story at NPR, too.)

-At least we’re not making transactions with embryos.

-Jimm Lasser puts in his five cents.
