|for years my friends teased me about finding pennies...those pennies just seemed to always be there, on the street, steps, sidewalk, etc, to me they were little gifts from the world acknowledging the mystery of existance...I love Rooney and this piece is an awesome tribute to his creative mastery...|

|Great channel... I suppose future arrivals mining copper will be pleased we did most of the work They will wonder why we put the face of god on those copper disks.

|Top thinking. Plus copper is worth heaps in the electrical industry. But as for value in years to come. Well, we have many Roman coins from 2000 years ago, and they have no value as they are everywhere, with Caesars head on. Though Saxon stuff is worth a lot as we find out that the dark period was not dark but full of creativity and much more.
Many a mickal makes a muckle. Meaning, many a penny saved makes a fortune rather than throw it away. Kids are spot on.

|Andy Rooney is my hero. I enjoyed this. I like the Canadian $2 coin, the one that looks like a doughnut with a dime stuck in the doughnut hole. Patrick|

|I think it is fitting that you ended your poet essaay by reaching back to Ben Franklin, who truly understood the value of a penny. Good thoughts.

|A kid asked why we have one dollar bill when all cost 99 cents, so why not a 99 cents bill? and if you look at the prices out there, 99.99 and 199,99 or 349.99...and so on. So, yes! why we don't have money that make sense? (LOL)

|good write, i love the nostagia included in this. It makes one think--i always pick up pennies-it all adds up, like you say!|

|Interesting and well written poem/prose. I like pennies. Their very color make a penny stand out among the nickels, dimes, quarters and half dollars (who sees them anymore). Besides, the penny is in the underdog status and I kinda lean toward those in that category . . .|

You take a simple but very relevant notion and expand it into something so enjoyable and reflective, I like what you do here and the great style in which you do it.
