    Could they not have hired a real graphical designer this time to make visually pleasing notes?
    American dollars just don’t look ‘good’, but perhaps that’s the beauty to many people.

    Since Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and not the Constitution, it would have been more fitting to add “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in lieu of “We the People” on the bill.

    I also find the currency changes interesting. The technology behind all the anti-counterfeiting is really fascinating. Discovery Channel has had some good shows on that.

    If Jefferson were on the 10 dollar bill, “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” might be appropriate. With Hamilton one of the architects behind the constitution, “We the People” fits.
