One of my pet causes

I love bashing policies, such as the penny, that are highly inefficient and yet have a very simple solution. There is almost no reason to keep the penny, and so we should just stop making them.

Today the issue of pennies became a big deal in New York city, when a Chinese restaurant refused to accept a man's 10 pennies. Bless this restaurant, and notice how the backlash against them became racially motivated.
“And we are in America. This is America. If you want to do business in America, you have to accept all American currency.”
Here is my Daily Wildcat column on pennies. It got a pretty good response.
