    Great, a nickel with Jefferson personable and confident. Great to face down the terrorists with. Islamic fundamentalists are fighting against exactly the kind of liberty that he conceived, the right to believe whetever the hell you want. This combined with the hunkier Hamilton on the new $10 bill, makes me think that they should bring out “Founding Fathers” action figures soon.
