Money is obscene after all

For good and sundry reasons, Liberty Elementary School in Keller, Texas decided to put a big picture of a new nickel (which contains the word "liberty" on the front page of the yearbook.) Problem. The coin also contains the words "In God We Trust" and, of course, not everyone does. And since those particular "everyones" have the right never to be confronted with the fact that they hold a view that others do not share (presumably they close their eyes when they count out their change), the school photoshopped the nickel to take out the offending phrase.

But, don't worry, the school offered stickers to those families who wanted to put back the phrase.

More proof that it takes more smarts to work at McDonald's than to go into educational administration.
