This Makes Me Smile — Ear To Ear…

Many will recall that about three and a half years ago, Baby-T and Steve Mnuchin put a halt to the finished Obama Administration plans to remove Andrew Jackson, and replace him with. . . Harriet Tubman on the US currency — the $20 bill. [My December 2018 backgrounder may be found here.]

In the mean time, as imaged at above left, many of us took matters into our own hands, and offered our “improvement“. . . to the existing $20’s in circulation. Here’s the latest bit:

. . .The Biden administration is looking at ways to speed up the process of putting Harriet Tubman’s image on the $20 bill after the effort stalled under the Trump administration.

“The Treasury Department is taking steps to resume efforts to put Harriett Tubman on the front of the $20 notes,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during a briefing with reporters.

“It’s important that our notes, our money. . . reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman’s image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that,” she added. “So we’re exploring ways to speed up that effort. . . .”

Karma they say — is a wheel. . . as that slave owning ex-President is replaced — or cancelled, if you prefer. . . with/by. . . the arguable “lead conductor” of the Underground Railroad. Sweet. Very sweet.

Semi-related side note — do see the new Regina King directorial debut — called “One Night In Miami” available now, on Amazon Prime — from which this Leslie Odom, Jr. artistry (as Sam Cooke, in a fictional moment in time) emanates:
