#67123 04/29/02 11:38 PM Oh for the days of paper dollars and two dollars. You could have a whole wad of them in your purse and you'd be none the worse for wear.
Now, if you have five loonies and five twonies you have nearly half-a-pound to cart around. Add the nickles, dimes, quarters and pennies and the weight is way too much.
Doesn't sound like much. Stick a pound of butter in your pant pockets and walk around with it all day, then get back to me.
The only thing that makes the coins worthwhile is that they can last forever - a paper bill - not so much.
The five-dollar coin is just around the corner but the weight consideration is causing some public outcry.
