Symbolism and the $1 Bill


blogs.static.mentalfloss.com

Crack open your wallet, pull out everyone’s favorite portrait of George Washington, and be prepared to learn about some odd symbolism that probably seemed perfectly normal in the 18th century. Here are the explanations behind some of the more baffling parts of our nation’s smallest bills.
What’s that weird pyramid drawing on the reverse of the bill?The two circular drawings on the reverse of the bill are actually parts of the two-sided Great Seal of the United States. Although we don’t see the entire seal outside of our wallets too often, the notion of having a great seal is actually

Got to love how they are trying to mainstream this on Yahoo news home page now. Haven't read it all yet ut I'm sure it has a lovely candy coated story to make it seem oh so nice. I wonder why after all these years they are trying to bring this out in the open for everyone to see? Any opinions?

I figured this would have been enough writting to submit this bt now but I guess I will add in a few meaningless lines of jargon to push this through.

From time to time, the MSM trots out little gems like this - a sort of "did you know?". It's meaningless. It will all be quietly forgotten until next time, when everyone will think it's new again.

I've seen this sort of thing several times over the years. It's always done in a nonthreatening, matter-of-fact way. In fact, there's nothing all that sinister about it. It's been this way for a long, long time.

The oddest thing:

I'm having trouble searching the authors other blogs...

Or searching the site in general. Other then the Yahoo story.

Anyone else?

Interesting to see such a Professionally written blog from a nobody.... Almost has a note of history book to it. I just want to compare to his other blogs, but I'm having a problem...

But clicking on the Dollar story, is immediate.
