Married, moved, and getting it together.
This is the best idea I’ve seen in a long time:
A bill before Congress, H.R.1785 and S. 244, initiated by students, to put an abridged version of the Constitution on the back of U.S. currency.

A very interesting idea.
Of course, it’ll also raise the side-question that the traditional “In God We Trust” line technically violates the 1st Amendment (which becomes a bit more obvious when we start listing the Amendments right there on the bill under that very line). Can’t wait to see the interesting arguments that arise. :-O
And, if course, if we ever pass another Amendment, we’ll have to update the bill again… not that that happens often… hmm… sort of a history embedded in the currency…

Yeah, there’s a whole pile of good reasons to do this.
I really like it too.
