Thanks to Joe Williams (3/1, Letters) for reminding us of the uselessness of pennies. So many countries have eliminated pennies because it’s so easy to “round up” or “round down.” The United States is in the Dark Ages. Rep. Jim Kolb of Arizona has twice introduced legislation to stop making 1 cent coins that cost 1.4 cents to make. He has had no success because there are organized opponents.
