WASHINGTON — IN 1928 the Treasury Department issued the first $20 bill featuring Andrew Jackson, replacing Grover Cleveland. After almost a century, Jackson needs to step aside — and this time, the bill should feature John Ross, a Cherokee leader and Old Hickory’s opponent in a fight to control Indian land.
A stupid idea. How about Tom Brady? Or Oprah maybe? Jackson is perhaps a turd but Ross doesn't sound like any bargain either. So choose somebody from our own time, when people are much better.
