Distribution of 400 Washington Quarters
summerofchange

George Washington, father of the nation, marched onto Wall Street at high noon on August 25th, 2011 to distribute the coins that bear his visage, and to dialog with the Common Man; a soldier in his revolutionary army.  This man, dressed in rags, relates how he was fleeced by Wall Street Investers who cashed in on war bonds.  Standing on the plaza with the people, the Common Man yells for economic fairness.  The father of the nation responds:Every American by their bootstraps pull/ Along this lively meritocracy/ What you ask for/ Is too much democracy!
